    Lets see who hits 5% soon… there is a bank bankunited or something giving 5% but they suck as they credit and compund interest quaterly and if you close your account before the interest is credited they keep it!!

  3. I believe countrywide bank has 5.00% APR. Not too bad

    Emigrant is now up to 4.80% too

  8. Jonathan, I didn’t understand the HSBC rate card very well. Are all their CD’s $1000 minimums? And are the Internet banking CD rates much lower than the 4.80% on the straight savings account? If so, I’m not really sure that HSBC is the way to go. If a person is a spender (like I am), I think being able to buy CD’s and lock your money up with higher rates is probably a good thing.

    What do you think?

  9. If you’re looking at CDs, I think there are much better rates elsewhere than at HSBC. Most of their energy seems to be focused on attracting customers to HSBC Direct.
