It’s one of the fastest ways to grow your liquid savings. With a Money Market Savings account, you can access your money, so it’s not locked up in a long-term investment. Yet you still earn at more competitive rates than a typical savings account. The larger your balance, the higher your rate.
With our Pinnacle Money Market or PinnaclePlus Money Market, you’ll pay no monthly fees just by maintaining an average daily balance of $5,000 in your account and following a few simple rules about transactions.
Customers with our PinnaclePlus Checking are eligible for a Bonus Rate1 when they also have a PinnaclePlus Money Market.

We want to make sure you understand the details. So keep in mind, you must have an average daily balance of $5,000 in your account to avoid monthly service charges. For Pinnacle Money Market, there is a $25 charge if your average daily balance falls below $5,000. For PinnaclePlus customers, the charge is $5.
According to federal law, Money Market accounts can have no more than six transfers (either to other First Niagara accounts or to a third party) per statement cycle by means of:
Cash withdrawals made at an ATM are not counted as part of the transaction limit.
A $15 service fee will be charged for each transfer or cleared item in excess of these limits during the statement cycle. Please be warned that federal regulations state that exceeding these limits may cause you to lose the transfer and check writing feature of this account.
If you perform a transaction at a non-First Niagara ATM in the United States or Canada, we will charge you a $2.50 fee. For ATMs outside of the United States and Canada our fee is $5.

1PinnaclePlus accounts can earn two types of interest: regular interest and additional interest. Additional interest is earned only if you also have a PinnaclePlus Checking account with us. All rates are variable and at our discretion, we may change the regular interest rate daily and the additional interest rate each monthly statement period. There is no limitation on the amount in which these interest rates may change. Neither interest rate will be tied to any index and will be set by us at our discretion.
