Higher Interest Rates

November 6th, 2013 at 02:12 pm

I'm often browsing for higher savings interest rates, but honestly, I have not jumped on some of them. I think I'm afraid of locking up the money for too long. I'm annoyed with myself for this. I really need to figure out what that is really about.

If you would like to search for higher interest rates, I recommend the website

Text is and Link is They have the rates categorized by type, location, and includes a calculator to show the interest you can earn.

I think the highest rate we are earning is 0.85% APR in our money market savings account. This isn't the lowest, but there are higher rates. Some do require some hoops to jump through and at a minimum we would have to move our money.

What is the highest rate you are earning on your cash? Does anyone have a long term CD? Anyone have good luck with a high yield rewards checking account?
