Everbank

March 1st, 2013 at 03:06 pm

I'm looking for higher interest rates. We have FNBO Direct for our money market account, which currently pays 0.85%. I want more!

I did some online searching and found Everbank, which has a 6 month promotion of 1.25%, combine that with their ongoing rate, it works out to 1.01% APR for the first year. That's better than our current rate.

I just don't know if I want to move it. I'm not familiar with the bank. It feels like a hassle, but I know it is a matter of setting up the account and making the transfer. With more money comes more responsibility, right?

I do want the money to grow, so this would be one step in getting a little more cash flowing in there. Too bad interest rates are so very very low! Ick.

Has anybody used Everbank?

My previous post is about some snowflakes.

    No experience with Everbank but I have used www.SmartyPig.com. I know the name sounds funny but it's a legitimate bank that's FDIC insured. Current rate is 1% and I like it becuase it allows you to set-up different goal and fund it how you choose to. It's similar to ING but instead of opening seperate sub-accounts with ING, you only have 1 account with SmartyPig but as many goals as you like. It's a savings account that's linked to an external account. Also if you cash your goals in for gift cards, you get a higher bonus rate as well.

    The main reason I closed my account was becuase I was chasing higher rates at the time. I never experienced any problems whatsoever. The more I tell you about them, I think I'm going to reactivate my account and close ING Smile

    Thanks, BAWW, I have heard of SmartyPig. That bank didn't come up in my search, so I appreciate the information.
