Update 2012: The Bank of Ripely is currently offering 2.51% APY on this account for balances up to just $15,000. You will probably need to make this your primary checking account to earn the 2.51% APY because they require 10 debit transactions per month as well as a direct deposit. If you do not meet the requirements, your APY shrinks to .05% and you will no longer receive ATM reimbursements. Compare this with our updated list of current rewards checking accounts.

About Bank of Ripley:
The Bank of Ripley began operations in 1939 following the Great Depression. In Ripley, Tennessee, there was a substantial need among residents during this time for a community bank willing to provide hardworking locals with financial assistance. Since then they have remained fairly small with an intense focus on Lauderdale County, Tennessee. In fact they didn’t open a branch outside the county until 1999. Today they have just 4 locations – 3 in Ripley, TN and 1 in Covington, TN.
