If that's the case, then why not allow the customer to decide between interest rate and ATM refunds? Couldn't NetBank offer two different types of accounts?

Taking this idea further, wouldn't it be cool if a bank could offer a 6.00% interest checking account? The bank then might allow you to add various features to your account but each would incur a certain cost.

For example:
Want no minimum balance? Subtract .5% from the interest rate.
Want ATM refunds? Subtact another half percent.
Free bill pay? Free ACH transfers? Each would reduce your interest rate further.

You get the idea. Give the customer the ability to decide what is important to him or her.

I wonder if a bank could offer a "made to order" checking account of that sort?
