E*Trade Rate Increase: 3.30% APY
Posted By Jim On 07/01/2008 @ 5:07 pm In Banking,Personal Finance | 1 Comment
E*Trade  just sent out an email notifying us that the interest rate will be increasing from 3.15% APY to 3.30% APY, effective tomorrow, July 2nd. This takes their interest rate from 6x the national average to 8x the national average. This is a better rate than both ING Direct  ($25 sign-up referral bonus ) and Emigrant Direct  but less than the 3.50% APY available from HSBC Direct , but that rate is only guaranteed through September 15th.
There’s no mention of how long this rate will be active but E*Trade is on an upward rate trend, as are other banks, and there’s no indication this is a promotional offer.
