The annual percentage yield for this tier will range from 2.00% to .50%, depending on the balance in the account. If you do not meet the requirements per qualification cycle, your account will still function as a free checking account earning 0.05% APY; however, you will not receive ATM refunds for that time period.  Rates as of April 1, 2013.
