    Day-to-Day Spending

    Your checking account is where you'll keep your spending money until you're ready to use it for regular expenses. This may include expenses like groceries, electricity, your rent or mortgage, or a car payment.

    Deposit money and then spend it in ways that are easiest for you. Keep track of your deposits and withdrawals by watching your account statements through online banking or mobile banking.

    Savings Accounts can Help You Prepare for The Future

    Your savings account is where you set aside money for the future. Whether you're thinking of saving for a down payment on a house, car or new appliance - it's a safe and convenient way to save and earn interest. When choosing a savings account, you'll want to consider a few things:

    • Interest rate - Savings accounts generally earn interest based on how much money you have in the savings account.
    • Minimum balance - Most savings accounts require a minimum deposit to open an account and may ask that you maintain a minimum balance to avoid a monthly fee.
    • Withdrawal limitations - Know how many withdrawals you can make without incurring fees.

    An Arvest Savings Account makes a great companion to an Arvest Checking Account. Learn more and apply for a Savings Account.
