I tried to open an online savings account yesterday as a new customer, but am now remembering that all of my credit reports are frozen--I'm wondering if Ally will get in touch, or will just let my application sink to the bottom.

I get 1.5 and 2% with rewards savings / checking with 2 different accounts for years now. The only stickler is it only works for the first $15k in each account.

They also refund ATM fees to boot.

Like a "gas war" that we see from tome to time, looks as though we are into an "interest rate war" that we can benefit from for the time being.


Continue the battle.

With AmEx's rise to 1.15%, Ally probably lost out on getting the bulk of my dough for this go-round, since it's taken them well over two weeks to open an online savings account for me as a new customer (and I still haven't gotten the mailed packet).

Though once I can finally access their interface, I can at least then compare.

Synchrony upped it to 1.20% recently. I noticed the rate paid on my late July statement was 1.19%, so it must have been in the last month.

Ally has a no penalty 11 month CD at 1.5%. Only requirements are a 6 day waiting period before you can withdraw and when you do, you have to take the whole amount out. I parked a bunch split out into three CD s.

Wow - Synchrony is now at 1.3% for high yield savings!!!!

They must have just announced this because my 9/20 statement shows 1.2%, but my online account shows it's now 1.3%.

Nice!
My Discover bank account is still only 1.2%, but I'm sure they'll match this. Competition is a wonderful thing.
