Using Ally Bank as a savings account..good or bad ?

I'm considering opening up an online savings account with Ally..I currently have a savings account with my CU, but I would prefer to have it stashed somewhere else so I won't be tempted to spend it, I would have about $125 a paycheck go towards the savings account..does this seem like a good idea ?

Isaiah2990 - I think it's a great idea!

 

I have an account with them.  It's so far out of the way I can't easily get to cash.  I don't do debit/cash cards.

 

Their interest rate is pretty good too.

If your normal CU is not Alliant Credit Union and you're OK with a hard inquiry, I recommend Alliant. They have a better interest rate, a really greate website and awesome customer service.
