Is Ken Tumin The Jack Bogle Of Deposit Accounts?

With Jack Bogle's passing last week, many articles have been written highlighting his revolutionary approach to investing for the common man: the index fund.

Query: Will Ken Tumin one day be regarded as equally revolutionary, bringing transparency to the somewhat arcane market of CDs, savings accounts, and other fixed-income investments?

For one, I was around (sort of) when Ken started his blog, and have followed it ever since. Just like followers of Jack Bogle are called "Bogleheads", I guess I might be called a "Tuminhead".

To me, Ken has been as revolutionary to deposit accounts as Jack was to stock and bond investing.

I also remember when when this site came from Texas and was called Bank Deals. This was the first
site I went to when I was finally able to get dial-up in the 80's. I had read about Ken in the WSJ at work. So glad that I read that article and passed the information onto literally 100's of people and still do when I give them the sites I use for deals for grocery shopping, for the department stores, for BF etc. Ken has no idea how many people he has helped. We keep telling him but I am sure that it is only a small fraction that thank him.

Yeah, Ken's a legend

If you added up the extra money people made by following the best deals posted here, it would probably astound.
