A NS Day!

June 13th, 2017 at 08:00 am

Oh, the shock it--I spent NOTHING yesterday. DD and I went for a hot walk, ate our semi-successful mason jar salads ( PSA: Use a wide-mouth jar unless you want to wear that salad), did a library run, and then I taught/counseled/urged/cheered on/goaded my evening class. Two more class nights left, and still my ex-con student is my clear favorite. Last night's line after trying to teach APA citation: "I'm going to stay here tonight, Miss, until I get it. If they have to throw me out of the building, I'm going to figure this out." We won't discuss the one who left with his work undone.

I've been again running Swagbucks in the background while I read papers. They're starting to add up again. Anyone have a good tip for high online savings rates? I see Barclay's has 1.05%, but I read somewhere that some online rates are as high as 1.25%.

    I think CIT Bank has 1.15% Don't know the details though.

    I see Goldman Sachs bank has 1.25, but I'm not a fan of them.

    Paladin Private Bank & Salem Five Direct were mentioned in the 1.30% range

    Check local banks and credit unions. I just found 3% last week.

    P.S. Much above 1% is probably more short-term promo rates. I've not looked too carefully since I have some CDs and found a 3% interest rate for some of my money.

    I really like Ally (1.05%). They've had some of the highest rates for the long run. Bank transfers are very fast. I really like that we can write checks from our account. This may be the flip side of my "not keeping any money in my checking account." I am not very bank loyal, generally, but with rates inching up I Can see that they have bought a little extra loyalty from me. I think Ally was mentioned in the link I posted.

    That sounds like one determined guy. I don't know him but I wish him well!

  6. My English Castle Says:

    Yeah, ceejay, I am so impressed with him. He makes me feel better about the world.

    I apologize - I snickered a little at the image of what most likely happened with the salads. Smile It sounds so like something I would do.

    For a better rate, check Kassasa accounts - it takes a little leg work, but for 3% - 5% interest, it may be worth it to you.
