Rates Well Below Average Now

I've had this account this 2007. At the time, they were paying a very competitive interest rate. I switched over from Capital One Online Savings Bank. Unfortunately, their rate has steadily declined to below average so it's now time to switch to another bank, American Express. Never had any real problems with them customer service-wise aside from the uncompetitive interest rate.

A Good E-Savings Account

This is a wonderful e-savings account -- very easy to set up, use, and transfer in and out.  The customer service has been excellent, the few times I dealt with them.  I just wish their APY would rise (as of 11/15/10 -- 1.1%) after being on top of the USA a couple of years ago.  Also, check the strength ratings of this bank...
