The latest study from GoBankingRates.com helps consumers identify the best checking accounts available in Phoenix.

“The new year is a great time to re-evaluate your financial strategies,” said Amanda Garcia, finance reporter with GoBankingRates.com. “If you’re looking to boost your finances in 2014 and effectively regulate your spending, consider a high-yield checking account.”

In addition to identifying the highest checking account rates in Phoenix, GoBankingRates.com also compared the average checking account rate in Phoenix with the average rates in Arizona and the United States as a whole.

Although the average Phoenix checking account rate is relatively on par with the state average, both fall far below the national average of 0.26%.
