I used to like Vons supermarkets when I lived in LA. Nice 6-month rate at their CU.

Not so sure it makes sense to categorize this offer as "very competitive", at a time when Salem5 Direct Bank is offering an FDIC-insured liquid savings account guaranteed to pay 1.1% until 1/1/16, and this offer is basically open to everyone in the US.
