Salle Mae Bank , which recently began offering their Sallie Mae online savings account , recently announced they were increasing their interest rate from 1.25% APY to 1.40% APY, putting it near the top of the interest rate list for high interest savings accounts . With no monthly fees, no minimum balance, daily compounding, and a competitive rate, Sallie Mae Bank has made a big splash in the online bank space despite being around for such a short period of time.
Their CD rates  are competitive too, if my memory services me right (as of May 11, 2010):
If you use Upromise, you can also get a 10% annual match on your Upromise earnings deposited into your account. To qualify, you have to link your bank account to your Upromise account and, within 90 days, do either:
The bonus is on your Upromise earnings, not the interest earned in your savings account, and that 10% bonus will be based on a calendar year. The bonus is deposited in February.
