    Why put it in a cd playing 1.65 when you can put it in a money market account at DiscoverBank (min $500 apr 1.84%)…. and it’s not tied up if you have to have it….if you put more in you can get a bit more…

    Does anyone know for how much longer the latest promotion Sally 10 with Metlife Bank will be going on? ($25,000) One year CD 2.25%

    In order to call them to find out they keep you on holding for at least twenty minutes, or you can’t get to them at all.

    Money Market accounts can change their interest rate at any time. So one month you may be getting 1.84% and then it may drop to .25%. Many banks lure customers in with higher rates only to drop them a couple months into the agreement.
