GE Money Savings Account Now 5.05% for $15K+ Balances

POSTED ON BY

GE Money raisied the rate of its online savings account to 5.05% APY for balances of $15K and over. For balances between $4K and $15K, the rate remains the same at 4.50% APY. Balances below $4K earn 1.75%. Even though this is less than other savings accounts which have no rate tiers, GE Money does have a $25 signup bonus. The competitive interest rate makes this bonus a little more appealing.

For the $25 signup bonus, the promo code RSF126L still seems to be valid. Just enter this code into the right box on the GE Money Savings page.

As I mentioned in this previous post, you have to maintain a minimum balance of $500 for the first 30 days after your account is opened to qualify for the bonus. The $25 bonus will be provided 30 days after eligibility requirements are met. From my call last May with the CSR, I was told there is no hard credit pull.

Thanks to the reader who mentioned this new rate in the finding deals post.

GE Money sucks! They didn't send me my first statement so I didn't know my due balance or due date. Then they called me to make me pay over the phone and charged my account $10. I gave out my bank account number as well as routing number correctly (the lady even repeated all the information again to confirm) and my account was charged $39 because "your check does not go thru or you gave the wrong information", said the representative guy. Once again they called me to make me pay for the amount due and ended up charged me another $10 as credit card transfer fee. Do not go to Gemoney. Such a cheating company!
Update on the GE Money Savings Account $25 Signup Bonus
GE is still offering a $25 bonus for opening its online savings account. I had first posted on this last May. The promo codes that I had first posted had expired. Thanks to FW member hair, several new promo codes have been found. The promo code EMPL03 seems like a good one for the $25. It's valid for accounts opened by 12/31/06. Just enter this code into the box on the right of the GE Money Savings home page. When you select go, a new page will give the promotional...

No-Minimum GE Money Savings Account - $25 Bonus
GE has a no-minimum online savings account with a $25 signup bonus. This savings account is new to me. The interest rates are not really competitive: 3.80% APY for balances over $4K, 1.75% APY for balances under $4K. But like ING Direct, there are no minimum balance requirements or monthly fees. It can be set up just like an ING Direct account by linking it to an external checking account and the application can be done online.

Since this is new to me, I checked it out at the FDIC's bank...
