Heads Up: E*TRADE Bank Increasing Savings Account Interest Rate Tomorrow

This article was written by in Banking. 14 comments.

With some anticipating rate increases from the Federal Reserve, we might start seeing more banks increasing the interest rates offered on savings account. E*TRADE Bank is ready, and they’ve announced an increased from 3.15% to 3.30% APY starting tomorrow, July 2.

I keep my company stock purchase plan investment with E*TRADE, though not by my choice. I haven’t had any problems with the investing arm of the company. When I sell more company shares, I plan on opening an E*TRADE Bank savings account. I’ve held shares for the last nine months or so, waiting for the company’s stock to head upwards.

I’ve been keeping my Emergency fund at e*Trade for a little over a year now and have nothing but good things to say about them. The interface is easier to use than ING and much more intuitive. Security seems a little lighter, but that may be because of the overkill that ING does.

I also have nothing but good things to say about E*TRADE for banking. If only they had referral links like ING…

In regards to referral links, they do offer them but they have to send you an email offering it to you. I have a referral link for others, it is for $25 bonus for signing up and I get $10 for it. Similar to ING. Any interest, please let me know.
