Start of disclosure content
Disclosures
  1. Standard variable interest rates are subject to change at the bank’s discretion and may change at any time without notice. You must maintain the minimum balance needed for each tier to earn the interest rate. Interest will be compounded daily and credited to your account monthly at the end of the statement cycle. Fees could reduce earnings on the account. Speak to a banker for current deposit rates, disclosures on rates, compounding and crediting and other balance information. The minimum deposit required to open a Platinum Business Money Market account is $100. Other restrictions may apply.

    Until March 6, 2024, open a new U.S. Bank Platinum Business Money Market account and receive a bonus interest rate from the account opening date. The bonus interest rate will be 4.50% when your account balance tier is $25,000 to $2,999,999.99. If the account balance falls below $25,000 or goes above $2,999,999.99, the full account balance will earn the standard variable interest rate in effect at the time until the account balance is between $25,000 to $2,999,999.99 again. Bonus interest rates may change at any time without notice and change to the standard variable interest rate in effect at that time.

    **For Platinum Business Money Market accounts with $3 million or greater in balances, the bonus interest rate does not apply.

  2. You must maintain the minimum balance needed for each tier in order to earn the Annual Percentage Yield (APY) disclosed. All rates and APYs are subject to change after the account is opened. Fees could reduce earnings on the account. Interest rates currently offered on applicable deposit accounts are determined at the bank's discretion and may change daily. We use the daily balance method to calculate interest on all deposit accounts. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day. Interest on your check deposit begins to accrue on the business day we receive credit for your applicable deposit accounts. Interest will be compounded daily and credited to your account monthly for all savings accounts, except Standard Savings, which is paid quarterly. If you close your account before interest is credited you will not receive the accrued interest.

  3. The daily balance is the balance at the end of each business day, equal to the beginning balance for that day plus the current business day credits, minus the current business day debits. Business days are Monday through Friday; federal holidays are not included. For additional information call 855-955-2760 or visit your local branch for a copy of Business Pricing Disclosure or visit https://www.usbank.com/dam/documents/pdf/Deposit-Account-Agreement.pdf to view Your Deposit Account Agreement (YDAA).

  4. Earnings Credit Rates may change at any time without prior notice. Earnings Credit: Average Collected Balance Available for Earnings Credit Services / Earnings Credit Rate / Actual Days in Month X Actual Days in Year. Refer to your Customer Analysis Statement for your current Earnings Credit Rate. For additional information call 855-955-2760 or visit your local branch to talk with a Business Banker. 

  5. APY (annual percentage yield) refers to how much money you earn on a deposit over a year, taking into account compounding interest.

Start of disclosure content

Additional savings and money market disclosures – The average collected balance is calculated by adding the principal in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the period. Unlike checking accounts, checks written on money market accounts are not returned with your statement. For additional disclosures on rates, fees, compounding and crediting, and other balance information, call 866-263-8634 or visit your local branch.
