I'm all for high interest rates, but not into tying my money up long term to get it. CD's are not even a consideration for me right now. I like the liquidity of online savings accounts and their high rate of return, like venturebankdirect.com at 3.8% APY with no minimum balance.

Thanks for the tip Chris, I checked out Venture Bank Direct and have been happy so far. They added an online checking account which is a big plus for me. Makes for easy access.
