SmartyPig Is Cutting Its Savings Account Rate to 1.10% APY

Thursday, June 2, 2011 - 3:24 PMSmartyPig - Details
Just received the following interest rate notice:

Effective June 15, 2011, the interest rate paid on SmartyPig savings accounts will be adjusted.

The interest rate earned on balances* $0.00 - $50,000.00 will earn 1.095% (1.10% APY). The interest rate earned on balances* above $50,000.00 will earn 0.499% (0.50% APY). *Balances: For purposes of calculating balances for determination of the rate tier that applies, total balances of all goals within your SmartyPig profile will be aggregated.

Thank You.

The SmartyPig Team


That's down from 1.35% APY.

Ouch. That's a big cut. Thanks for posting.

I thought SmartyPig would at least match or stay about ING Direct's savings account rate.

BBVA Compass must have decided it didn't want the deposits.
