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, Clearview's Simple Checking offers all the other features of a modern checking account. It just doesn't stop there.

I moved to San Diego in 2003. I decided to keep Clearview because I could not find any other bank that treats me as good as Clearview! It is now 2020 and I am still with them and as long as I am doing banking it will always be Clearview! Robert, Member since 1992
