Product not available to new customers and access restricted to customers with existing High Yield Money Market Savings accounts after 06/21/2007.
It appears UFB is replacing this with the new tiered savings account account called the Absolute Savings. To receive the 5.31% APY a balance of over $10K is required. Balances from $5K to $10K earn 5.21% APY and all smaller balances earn 5.11% APY.The minimum opening deposit is $1. There are no monthly minimum balance fees.
Except for the tiered rates, the features of the Absolute Savings Account look the same as the old High Yield Money Market Savings. It comes with an ATM card. UFB will reimburse up to $4.50 per statement period for ATM fees charged when using other banks' ATMs.
Note, several readers have reported that UFB Direct does a hard credit inquiry when you open an account.
