Emigrant Direct Unveils 5.15% Money Market Rate

In the letter I got from Emigrant Direct, they say that they will be raising their money market account rates to 5.15% starting July 28! That is going to be HOT.

I have already scheduled to take money out of my ING Direct Orange Savings Account to deposit into my Emigrant Direct American Dream Savings account. 5.15% is an AWESOME rate, putting Emigrant Direct back to the #1 spot on the best money market rates.

    Sadly the problem with banks not telling you when interest rates are going down is familliar across the world. This is a good reason to watch blogs like this (or subscribe to the RSS feed).

    On another matter Emigrant Direct are a really interesting bank. They are the largest privately owned bank in the United States. The largest of a dying breed.
