I took a moment today to update the list of high-yield savings and checking account interest rates. While the rates are in decline, with the best annual yields around 3%, it will still beat the 0.2% to 0.4% many brick-and-mortar banks are offering on their savings accounts.
An email from Justin, a reader, reminded me that it was time for an update. He notified me that Emigrant Direct’s rate decreased to 2.75% recently.
