Bank of America

I finally have a decent size savings account (i.e more than $ and I noticed that Bank of America credited me $0.10 for earned interest last month. Upon further investigation, I found out that my savings APR is 0.01%. Seriously 0.01%?????


That rate applies to all balances too. So that if someday my $5000 balance becomes $50,000, I will still only earn 0.01%


Ridiculous. I moved my money to Capital One (I know). At least I'll earn 0.60% there. I need to call my credit union in the morning to see what their rates are.

BK in 2008, after making very stupid financial decisions.

The awesomeness of BofA's savings account is in the Keep the Change program. It's 100% return after a year, and 5% per year afterwards.
