Comerica Maximize® Checking

Put idle operating cash to work earning interest

Maximize your interest while minimizing your costs. Comerica Maximize brings you a powerful package of cash management solutions to protect against fraud and manage your payments, receivables, loans and more, combined with interest checking.

The more you deposit, the more you earn on excess balances with tiered interest rates. What’s more, an Earnings Credit Allowance (ECA) allows you to offset some or all checking and cash management fees based on your balance.5

Sweep Accounts

Take the work out of making your money work harder, with a sweep account. Set a target balance, and have funds swept automatically out each day to earn interest, fund investments6 or pay down lines of credit7, then sweep back automatically to maintain the target balance and cover withdrawals.
