Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


I would like to thank all of you for your support this year, and I wish you all a safe and happy holiday season. I'll be taking a break on the postings for next few days as I visit with family.

If you're looking for recent bank deals, refer to my bank deals hub where readers can post on the deals they find. For recent deals that I've reviewed, please refer to my last weekly summary. Many of these deals are still available including ING Direct's 2% 12-month CD (see review).

Site does nothing. Who has gotten wealthy from the BANKS? They exist for bankers themselves.

Site only exists to empower bankers while the average person gets pennies on the dollar. Even the highest bank rates don't pay well.

Long live gold currency.

If that is what you think, why do you even bother visiting this site?

Most of us here thing "Banking Guy" is the greatest. He really keeps us savers informed.

Happiest of holidays to you, too.

Your work is a shining example of what the internet can facilitate: empowering consumers in the marketplace, so that they may stand on equal footing with producers.

Thanks to Banking Guy for his great work in 2009. And may we as savers find in the New Year that (1) we will have more favorable interest rates; and (2)we should be thankful that we have savings at all when many of our fellow citizens are not fortunate enough to have this interest rate "problem." May those in need, including the unemployed, find better fortune in 2010.

Happy New Year to all!!

Long live the Gold currency? Ha!
Well, I want YOU to put ALL of your money right NOW into bullion gold. Three things can happen. The price can remain the same as it is indefinitely (extremely unlikely), the price can rise to many thousands of dollars an ounce (and you would make a killing), or the price can drop down significantly (and you would get nearly wiped out). Now let's see what the price will be 10, 20, 30 years from now.....

I look to "Banking Guy" for the best rate for my hard earned savings, not risky investments.
I don't visit this site looking for advice on gold.

Price of gold:

10 years from now?
Got to spend some to live on in the mean time.

20 years from now?
Can't wait that long.

30 years from now?
Who cares, I probably won't be around.

I wish everybody a
