This bank is about 10 miles from my house but I prefer not going to a branch to open an account. Rather do my banking on line. Would lile to see a 3% deal. I guess the Credit Unions and banks know they will be inundated with applications since the news will be broadcasted over the internet if they offer a great and rate. Where are you Penfed?
