Are there any saving accounts that allows me to credit my salary via cheque and fulfil the requirement to earn interest?

It sounds a little stupid... but my boss credits my salary via a hardcopy cheque instead of GIRO. Would want to earn and build my financial stability as a fresh grad

Do note you'll need to spend at least $500 on uob credit cards for that month to qualify for bonus interest!

I believe you can check out CIMB FastSaver which gives 1% interest without any GIRO requirement.

Hope that helps!
