ING Direct Savings Rate Up

This article was written by in Saving. Comments Off

ING Direct now offers a 2.8 percent APY on their savings accounts, up 20 basis points. This rate is still well below the one offered by Emigrant Direct for that bank’s no fee, no minimum balance savings account.

You may want to consider ING Direct’s certificates of deposit if you don’t mind not touching your money for at least a year. Their new rates on CDs are 3.4, 3.9, 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 percent for each maturity length of one through five years.

Update: ING Direct isn’t the only entity raising rates. VirtualBank matches ING’s newest offering and the Federal Reserve raised its rates to 2.75 percent.
