    I tried opening an account with Ally, back before I finally cleared up my credit. I was told that because of my credit situation, I could not open a “savings” account.

      Interesting. I have a credit score in the high 700s, so I doubt that’s the reason. I did recently freeze and then unfreeze my credit reports after some concern over identity fraud. Perhaps that’s the reason!

  2. I use ALLY bank and I think they are the best. And I rarely have to wait when I call to speak to someone…no crazy automated maze to run through. They have the best rates too…can’t beat that!

    I have an idea for a future Frugal Friday post. Have you heard of Bing rewards? You get points for using Bing for internet searches and can redeem the points for things like Amazon giftcards/free Hulu membership and so many other things. I like it better than Swagbucks because it doesn’t take as long as SB to rack up enough points for a prize.

    Here’s a referral link if you’re interested: http://www.bing.com/explore/rewards?PUBL=REFERAFRIEND&CREA=RAW&rrid=_331490ab-0c4e-8313-ad15-29d871d5f68b

  4. Been a user of Ally Bank savings account for a year now. Hands down, it is one of the easiest banking I have ever done. No minimum deposit. No monthly maintenance. Earn higher rate. What else can I ask for?

    i set up an online savings account through gecapital.com they are offering .95%

      I looked at the reviews of that one too and preferred Ally, but if I don’t get approved perhaps I’ll go with GE Capital! Optimizer+ also has .95%.

    Its very interesting to learn how much you can earn and save by just your switching accounts. I think such an investment is worth your time.
