The minimum balance to open a savings account will depend on the type of account. For complete details on balance requirements and monthly service fees, visit Compare All Personal Savings Accounts.
Both a Money Market Savings account and ASB Tiered SavingsSM account pay higher interest for higher balances. The Money Market account provides the ability to write checks. Compare All Personal Savings Accounts.
You may make no more than six (6) transfer transactions per monthly cycle. These restricted transactions consist of transfers to third parties or another deposit account with us made by preauthorized or automatic transfers (including overdraft transfers), or telephone agreement (including data transmission), order, or instruction, such as using our telephone banking service or online banking, and transfers made by check, draft, point-of sale, or similar order payable to third parties. Payments to your loans with us and withdrawals or transfers made in person at ATMs or our branches do not count toward the six (6) transfer limit. If you exceed this limit on more than an occasional basis, we may freeze, close, and/or convert your account, transfer your funds to a transactional account, and/or charge you a fee. This applies to both business and personal accounts.
Interest is compounded daily and credited to your account monthly. If your account is closed or is transferred to a non-interest bearing account before interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest. If the interest amount calculated for the monthly cycle is less than half a cent, interest will not be paid.
You may also use the Automatic Payments and Transfers form to set up automatic transfers to or from your accounts. If you are withdrawing from a non-ASB account, you will need the account number and routing number, a voided check, or a copy of your statement. Return the form to any branch or mail to:
American Savings Bank
Attn: ACH Services
PO Box 2300
Honolulu, HI 96804-2300
We need 5 business days from the date of receipt of your form to set up, change, or cancel your transfer. For loan payments we will send you a letter confirming the start date of your first automatic payment. Please continue to make your payments until you receive your confirmation letter.
