The main difference between an online savings account and checking account is how you plan to use the money. A checking account is typically used for everyday transactions and easier access to your money, while a savings account is basically an investment account that earns interest on a balance that grows over time. A savings account is better for building up emergency funds and working toward larger financial goals. You can have both with Varo with no monthly fees — best of both worlds.
