Fox Business – There’s a good chance that the yield on your savings account has disappointed you lately. But now may be a great time to do something about it.
Last month, the Federal Reserve announced that it would be keeping interest rates low until unemployment drops below 6.5% — something that is unlikely to happen in 2013. So if you’ve been waiting for the interest rate on your savings to rise on its own, you could be in for a long wait. Or you could do something about it by switching to one of MoneyRates.com’s best savings accounts for 2013.
The banks below have all offered consistently high interest rates recently, as evidenced by their multiple appearances in MoneyRates.com’s America’s Best Rates rankings. But in addition to rates, factors such as size, locations, Internet presence and their range of financial offerings are also mentioned in the rankings below. While this isn’t a comprehensive list of every great savings account available, it does highlight the top performers in the past year of MoneyRates.com’s research.
