I see a lot of banks offering rewards checking accounts (maintain the account in an active status by doing x transactions/month,direct deposit, paper less statements etc, in return you yearn high apy. apy varies month to month)

I see a few of them here

Are interest bearing rewards checking account FDIC insured ?

Yes, any type of Deposit Account is insured, while any investment is not covered.

Accounts in banks are insured by the FDIC, accounts in credit unions are insured by the NCUA
