- ableBanking is offering a 1.7% APY on their Money Market account. There are no requirements to receive this rate, you do need to deposit $250 initially when opening the account but after that as long as you have a balance of $0.01 you’ll earn the 1.7% APY rate.
The Fine Print
- Must be a United States Resident to apply online
There are no monthly fees to worry about. As this is a money market account you’re limited to 6 withdrawals per month.
Previously the best basic savings account rate was 1.6% APY with no requirements, so this is 0.1% higher than that and the new leader. There are of course rewards accounts that offer up to 5% APY, I’d recommend maxing out the easier ones of those first (e.g Insight) before considering an account like this.
