SFGI Direct reduced its savings account rate from 1.65% to 1.51% APY. The bank is still not accepting new applications. It has been this way since November 2009. Please refer to my SFGI Direct review for more details.

SFGI Direct now open to the public after being closed to new members for several months

Also rate down from 1.35 apy to 1.26 apy.

I guess they "soured the milk" enough that they no longer overwhelmed by deposits. Incidentally, I closed my account yesterday (before I even knew about the most recent rate drop).

SFGI Direct (http://www.sfgidirect.com/) savings account rates are UP, from 1.26% apy to 1.41% apy :)

 

The new rates aren't reflected when you login to your account, but the rate changes generally show up after a day or two anyway. 

 

Main page says: "The APY is accurate as of 12/3/2010"

I would have put this in a new post since the current thread's title "SFGI Direct Cuts Savings Account Rate" is not applicable in this case, but the search didn't find anything for http://www.sfgidirect.com, www.sfgidirect.com, SFGI, nor Summit Community Bank despite this being reviewed on BDB/Deposit Accounts.com before. My one suggestion for this site so far is the search of bank url's sometimes doesn't work.

Thanks for the update and sorry about the search problem. We have this fixed now so SFGI Direct can be found.
