I was surprised to see this, but it was nice. I thought I will hsare this with the rest here
There are lot of credit unions who are offering interest rate up tpo 5% on a checkign account even in this market when the interest rates are really low
They have some catch - you need to have soem direct depost and this is offered if you keep atleast $25,000/-.
But you cna open accoutn with as low as $25/-
You will need to use the check card 10 times in a month etc
Feel free to share yoru experiance
