Anyone got a better savings account out there right now? It seems every two weeks the rate goes down a little more on ING. Down to 1.15% I believe when it was higher while the bottom fell out of the economy.

Anyone got any good ones right now?

Yeah I've got some money with them and the rate has plummeted. I'd be interested in what people have to say on the issue.

It's all of them.... My credit union savings is down to 1.5%, they just dropped it again last week.

All the typical savings accounts are down because so many people are still sitting it out on stocks and the Fed rate is low.

Even CD's with large minimums (to me) are hovering in the low 3's.

I switched some aaa rated bonds i had to pay a bit of a premium on but they get around 5%

Obviously some risk there but not a whole lot. Also you can sell without a penalty which I like. Bonds sort of a non sexy way to invest but they have there good points.

I use their Sharebuilder service they bought from BB&T, pretty much everything they do is ****.

Rate are dropping everywhere and its done on purpose. The gov't wants you to spend -not save. Hence the low rates on just about every savings account / CD / interest bearing account.

I got out of my ING account once they ruined Bay to Breakers. Anyone from SF will understand what I'm talking 'bout
