I started the BankDeals blog which eventually evolved into DepositAccounts.com as a hobby to help people find the best deals at banks and credit unions. My deals come from US banks and credit unions, both online and brick-and-mortar. Internet banks are creating more competition and better rates, but sometimes the best deals are local.
In addition to reports on deals, I also describe my experiences on opening accounts and dealing with the banks. Plus, I try to keep everyone updated on the important banking news relevant to savers.
I am NOT affiliated with any banks or institutions. I'm just another web surfer like you. My posts are based on what I find on institutions' websites, what they advertise and what the banks' customer service reps tell me. I also receive valuable help from readers who inform me of new rates and deals. Comments and emails are much appreciated.
Check with the institution for the latest and official information. Rates change very fast, and so the only official information is directly from the bank or credit union. I keep old posts with old rates for history's sake. A bank's rate history can be an important factor to consider. All posts are dated so you can see if the post may be out-of-date. You may contact me at ken [at] depositaccounts.com.
