http://www.hsbcdirect.com/ is offereing a dealie which is 5.05%APY for an online-operated savings account. As I have a spare thousand right now, I was deabting a short-term (6 months maybe) Certificate o' Deposit, but this is much more liquid ($1 minimum balance) and has a darn good interest rate. Figured I might mention it abotu for others who might be in a similar situation. Beats the 1.41% APY my Credit union is paying for savings by a nice margin.
And the $250 I won at the Employee Bingo Tournament on Monday made for a nice impetus. Whoo!
