2.60% is a terrific rate, especially given that the rise of interest rates seems to be slowing down. The best no-penalty competitors are Dime Bank at 2.45% on their 13-month offering. And then there are some high-yield savings accounts with rates up to 2.53%, though the best rates often have high minimums. This account has just a $10k minimum and is better than all other rates currently available.
No-penalty CD’s don’t have quite the same utility as ordinary savings accounts, but for someone not really planning on spending the funds they are almost as good. Just remember you’ll have to break the entire CD if you elect to pull your funds out, you can’t just pull out part of the funds.
Interesting option to consider. We’ll add this to our list of Best High Yield Savings Accounts. Please comment below with experiences using this bank. (Thanks to numerous readers who let us know about this new account.)
