Banking Doldrums

August 21st, 2015 at 05:51 pm

I now have rewards pending at only 1 bank. And the last time I opened a CD was in Jan 2014 when PenFed CU was offering 5 years at 3%. I would like to get some more Series EE bonds but DH wants to hold off until after the FOMC meets Sept 15-16. This is all a bit of a bummer and feels too NON-proactive for my taste.

Hopefully I can find a nice juicy bank promo soon!

    Have you looked into Liberty Trust Credit Union? Not a banking bonus, but they do have a checking account that offers 2.5% interest after meeting some qualifications (direct deposit, 12 debits a month)

    Thanks, FrugalTexan. A problem I run in to is that I don't like to use debit cards. I know I limit my options because of that choice.

    I understand - I prefer my CCs too, but for 2.5% interest, I'm willing to change my habits a little bit. Smile

    I don't like debit cards either!
