Perhaps we need a different kind of business account for that?
Liquidity is the key here since the funds need to be drawn upon for the operating costs and potential reward payouts. That rules out the longer term CDs or MM accounts, but even an interest bearing checking account might still pull in a few bucks each month. If enough was set aside to handle a year of expenses, put the rest towards a 1-year whatever.
