Ouch... That was a big drop. Looks like they just changed it. Hope we don't see drops this big from the other banks. Thanks for the update.

The rate page (dated 9/24/08) states 3.51% APY as top yield. Cap value ($25K?) NOT given...default yield appears to be 0.25% APY. One of those "Call us for details" sites.
