The Fine Print
- Rate effective 2/12/19 and may change after account is opened.
This account has no monthly fees.
From the account application, it appears that this account is available nationwide. That makes them the best currently available saving rate anywhere with the exception of this NASB account which has a $50,000 minimum and a couple of others who have a $50,000 maximum.
That being said, we don’t have any rate history with this bank, and no knowledge of whether this rate will stick around. Hopefully readers will share what they know in the comments below.
Thanks to reader Steven for sending this in.
