It might be useful to include a few of the larger money market rates in the table, because they are quite competitive for people who meet the minimum (generally a few thousand dollars).

Particularly in a rising rate environment.

Of course they don’t offer some of the benefits of banks such as ATM cards, but they do have check access which makes them very suitable for short-term savings or an emergency account.
