Everything you need, and more things that you'll really like.

Everyone likes it when life offers a little extra. In Pittsburgh, that can mean a sandwich stuffed full of fries, an amusement park with - count 'em - six world-class coasters, or a checking account that offers dividends like a savings account and a rewards program like a credit card. Of course, the Simple Checking account from Clearview based in Pennsylvania offers all the other features of a modern checking account. It just doesn't stop there.
