Here are the latest money market interest rates of the banks that I've been tracking on my blog. Note that these rates are sorted by APY, and represent institutions that I have accounts at, or have otherwise mentioned in my blog:
1.15% Discover Bank Online Savings
1.15% American Express High Yield Savings
1.00% Ally Bank Online Savings
1.00% Urban Partnership Bank
1.00% ING Direct Orange Savings
1.00% FNBO Direct Online Savings
0.80% HSBC Advance Online Savings
0.55% Western FCU Money Market
0.30% E*TRADE Complete Savings
0.20% Citibank Ultimate Savings
0.15% Chase Plus Savings
0.07% PayPal Money Market*
NOTES: *The PayPal Money Market fund is NOT FDIC insured. In some cases, MMA interest rates are tiered. If this is the case, I usually report the interest rate at the $10,000 tier in these updates.
Rates are believed to be accurate as of 6/1/11. I did not include banks that had special, or introductory rates in the list because they are not ongoing interest rates. I am also not including non-liquid accounts such as CD's in the list. This month at the request of readers, I added American Express and FNBO Direct to the list of institutions. Discover Bank and American Express are tied for the highest interest rate of the banks that I'm tracking.
I was surprised that the interest rates for Citibank and Chase were so low. Since I still have significant funds in these institutions, I think that it is time for me to consider moving some money around to other institutions.
So, that is the latest list of money market rates. Please let me know if you know of any higher interest rates.
