Interest Rate History
- Update 10/19/18: Rate has been increased to 2.25%. One thing I like about All America Bank is that they frequently have one of the highest rates available and raise rates for existing customers automatically – unlike some other unethical financial institutions. Rate on rewards checking has also been increased to 2.75% APY.

This looks to be the same account that is offered by Red Neck Bank, I’m not sure if you can have an account with both. This is the best basic savings account interest rate out there currently. If you have any experiences with this bank then please let us know in the comments below.
Thanks to reader John for letting us know.
