Rates as of November 13, 2018.

While iGObanking has a reputation for having roller coaster CD rates, the iGOsavings’ previous 1.00% APY had been in effect since September 2014. At that time, the rate was very competitive. Based on the rate history, it may take iGObanking a long time before we see another rate hike which could result in the account becoming uncompetitive once again in the next few months. Nevertheless, with no stated restrictions or fees, closing this account would not be difficult if the rate doesn't keep up. As stated on the High Interest Savings Account page,

That’s right. No fees, no minimums, and a 1.90% APY.

ACH Transfers

Even though information about ACH transfers is extremely important for internet banks, it’s rarely available on a bank’s website. In a conversation this morning with a CSR, I learned the following:

  • ACH transfers, both incoming and outgoing, are free.
  • Outgoing ACHs are limited to $15k per pending transaction. You cannot initiate another outgoing ACH until the pending transaction is completed. Transfers of more than $15k are possible, but require written notice that includes specific transaction details.
  • Incoming ACHs are limited to $100k per transaction, with a monthly aggregate total of $500k.
  • Incoming transfers take 3-4 days to process, with funds available as soon as the process is finished.
  • Up to five external links are allowed.
  • Transfers initiated from other banks are allowed.
