Update – The interest on Resurgens Bank is no longer providing the APY mentioned below. Visit their rates page to get today’s updated rates. Although interest rates as a whole are sitting at extremely low levels, we have seen a bit of competition amongst online banks on money market rates lately. We would recommend keeping your funds in a liquid savings account such as this rather than opting for a certificate of deposit so that your money is readily available should rates rise or something unexpected happen.
