FNBO Savings Rate Decrease (From 0.85%) To 0.75%

Friday, May 3, 2013 - 9:43 PMFNBO Direct - Details
First National Bank of Omaha (FNBO) Direct appears to
have decreased their Savings account APY (from 0.85%)
to 0.75%.  Their Web page and account disclosure still
lists 0.85%; however the table of rates available after
you login lists (changed today) an APY=0.75% for this

Thanks cumulus for reporting on this.

It took me awhile to find where the 0.75% was listed, but I finally found it. When logged in I clicked on the link “Check for Great Rates”, the rate table pops up which shows 0.75% for the savings account. This is actually visible without being logged in. Here’s the URL of that page:

I called the bank at 877-370-3707 and asked what rate was correct. The CSR checked her system and said that 0.85% was still in effect, and that the 0.75% that was shown was a mistake. She said she was going to report the discrepancy to her supervisor. You have to be a little suspicious of CSRs (especially on the weekends), so I’m not going to say with 100% certainty that 0.85% is still in effect. Hopefully, we'll be able to confirm that 0.85% is still in effect next week.
