Where the heck did you find that rate for Investors Bank.  I went to their web page and their rates are very low, nowhere near the 1.25% you stated.

I like the line, "Hurry, a rate like this won’t last forever."

Very true statement.  That rate will go up or down at some point in time.

The promotional rate lasts for 4 months at l.2% and then reverts to the premier mm account rate which is currently 0.10% for balances over $5,000, 0.20% for balances over $25,000, 0.40 for balances over $100,000.   With savings accounts paying around 0.90%, it is bot worth transferring for 4 months of (30 basis points) higher rate IMO.  That would amount to $25 if your balance was $100,000.
