We've had Costco CapOne Money Market and Savings accounts since 3/31/2005. Went with them for the solid ratings and high interest. The gal has had the Costco Interest Plus account since 1/2010, got the $60 and is getting the 10% bonus - it's paid quarterly. She's going with paperless statements and earning some tiny extra amount - not worth it to me because i like the continuity of paper that all matches (all accounts the same size and color and logo).
Depending on your future intent, you may want to consider Alliant Credit
Union. 1.50% savings (sl. less than Costco w/ 10% extra), no signup bonus,
you might have to join a local PTA to be eligible ($5-15 or so). Main advantage is you don't have that 15K min barrier......there may be some minimum but if there is, it wouldn't be > $100 and there might not be one at all.
