One thing I hope this accomplishes is making online banking competitive, where the only ones gaining are us, the consumers.

Somethings amiss. How can a bank offer such an amount?

What's amiss is why don't all banks offer such amounts...
B&M banks have lots of overhead.. but online banking should be competitive..

Do you have any clue where interbank rates are?
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Cost of compliance shouldn't differ that much between online and B&M. The reason all the small banks are selling themselves to the regional and nationals is not because they can't afford the cost of brick and mortar. It's because Dodd-Frank is just too expensive to comply with.

I'm clueless in these things, I just know that my current bank has 0.01 interest and this is a lot more..

Unless this is a scam.. could it be so?

Would love to get 2-4%, but is it really possible for them to afford that?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Very, very strange that their security policy is hosted on drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9OAUbCZZGz9TTFIV0RvRmF1RFk/view

Now I'm kicking myself for viewing it while signed into chrome  :(

Actually, all three are hosted in drive  ???
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

How do banks offer these rates on CDs but not on savings?

They don't need to keep as much liquid
