Another short post! A few weeks ago I opened a savings account with Ally because it was offering a 1.75% rate. Right around that time I saw that a company named Marcus was offering 1.8%. I figured I would stay with Ally for a bit before rushing over to check out Marcus.
So far Ally seems okay. It's offering a higher rate than my old savings account so I am pleased. I was worried for a few days because at the end of June because no interest posted to my account. As I clicked on various links on the site I saw that the statement cycles ended on the 15th, so I figured I would wait until today to see if any interest posted. It did! I received $9.58 for a partial month of parking my money. That's more than I received for having my money parked for an entire month in my former savings account!
I will keep you updated on how Ally works out for me.
