Online Bank Competition Heating Up?

How’s this for being behind the times? Earlier this week I picked up a copy of USA Today and was greeted by a story that talked about competition amongst online banks heating up to the point that they’re now offering interest rates of 5% or more on their savings accounts. The thing is, they’ve been offering rates like this for a long, long time. In fact, I can’t even remember when they first broke the 5% threshold — maybe a year or so ago? Glad to see that the mainstream media is keeping up with recent events! 😉

    yeah, too bad ING isn’t one of them. However, i’m learning to live with my post-ING days with igobanking. of course it has all been one way in since i opened the account. now if we can get those buggers to 5.5%, that would be great.
