You can also link your existing checking account at some of the largest banks / brokerage firms in the country directly to Max.

Linking your existing checking/brokerage account to helps you maintain a constant checking account balance from month to month. 

You’ll set a Target Balance -- the amount of funds that you would like to remain in your checking account. If your checking account balance exceeds your Target Balance at the time of your monthly Max optimization, excess cash will be swept to your higher-yielding online savings accounts; if your checking balance is lower than your Target Balance, funds will be moved from your online savings accounts back into your checking account to restore your checking account to your Target Balance.
