I do all of my savings and checking online @ BoA in Tempe/Chandler/Scottsdale/Gilbert. Have not had any problems with it all. For me, I don't like carrying cash around at all so I just use my debit card practically everywhere.
Very secure IMO.
Looks like AmTrust has a few different savings account options. Gold savings, Statement savings, and Ohio Heritage Savings.
In the Gold savings it costs $500 to open, $500 balance to avoid mthly maintenance fee and you need a $500 balance to earn interest (Interest rate is 1.492%).
In the Statement savings it costs $100 to open, $250 to avoid mthly maintenance fee and $100 to earn interest. (Interest rate is .500%)
In the Ohio Heritage it costs $50 to open, there is no mthly maintenance fee, and you earn interest with at least a $1 balance(Interest rate is .499%).
I can't help you in the Roth IRA account though.
