    Liberty Bank in Chicago is still offering this local special on 66-month CDs. It’s paying 3.10% APY with a $2,500 minimum deposit.

    It seems 13 of the nation's 15 biggest banks are pushing customers to opt-in to costly overdraft protection and fees.We had hoped that most banks would follow the lead of Citibank and Bank of America, and not pressure customers to sign up for overdraft protection. Hah. That was wishful thinking. The Consumer Federation of America says 13 of the country’s 15 biggest banks – all of them except Citi and Bank of America — are pushing customers to voluntarily sign up for a program that’s costing them $23 billion a year in fees. Our advice: Don’t do it.

    on July 8th at 04:03 pm has just posted a great deal on 15-year mortgages – the interest-saving loans many borrowers use to refinance their homes. It says AimLoan is charging just 3.875% with no points. That is pretty amazing, and the offer is available in 43 states. I guess that’s what happens when mortgage rates fall to new record lows four weeks in a row.

    Stocks climbed for the third straight day after first-time unemployment claims fell. The Dow was up more than 100 points to close at 10,138 and the Nasdaq rose 15.93 to close at 2,175. I think the markets overreact to these unemployment reports. You simply can’t devine a trend from a single week worth of claims. But what can I tell you. They consistently move the markets.
