Money Market Sweep
A savings and overdraft protection solution
Enjoy the benefits of linking your money market and checking accounts.
Want to grow the savings in your money market account? Need a smart way to help protect your checking account against overdrafts? With our Money Market Sweep service, you can link your BBVA checking and BBVA Money Market accounts to do just that.
How It Works
Automatic Savings Sweep
Want to boost your interest earnings? You can automatically “sweep” funds into your interest-bearing money market account and take better advantage our money market rates. Here’s how:
- Your BBVA banker will set up your Money Market Sweep by linking your new or current checking and money market accounts.
- You determine a target maximum balance of at least $10,000 for your checking account.
- Each day that your collected balance exceeds your target maximum balance, the excess will automatically sweep into your BBVA Money Market Account.
There are no minimum transfer amounts—all excess funds over your target maximum balance are transferred daily.
Overdraft Protection Sweep
Money Market Sweep is also an overdraft protection solution. If you overdraw your checking account, we’ll “sweep” money back into your checking account to help you avoid overdraft fees.* This service is only available if your money market account has available funds to re-establish your target maximum balance or a balance of $0 in your checking account.
