I check out my local bank accounts every day and record the amount of interest that I have earned.
I was very proud of my one local bank. For a couple of years they have paid 5.25% on a money market account and I made decent interest while we used the money to build spec houses.
Several months ago, the rates dropped to 4.1% but I still kept the money locally.
I was shocked when I went online today to see that the rates had dropped to 3.4%

I called the bank and explained that i had 300K in there, but they would not give me a rate above 3.6% Looks like I will be moving on!!

    Ima, can you get some CD's that would come due in 3 mos and maybe you could buy 3 or 4 (3 month CD's) in case you needed to break one.

    We have quit build specs for now, so the money will probably sit all year!

    Unfortunately when the Feds cut the discount rate this week,it changes savings rates. I just checked out an account at 5.10% at IngDirect.com.
