My Bad....

Reports are that Robinhood, the investment platform I mentioned in my last post, has rescinded, or at least delayed, the 3% saving and checking accounts it previously advertised. My apologies for getting folks’ hopes up.

In the meantime, check out Synchrony, Citizen’s Access (thanks, Alex) and Goldman Sachs Bank for accounts paying more than 2%.

Great Saving Opportunity....

Today’s post will be short, as I just want to share that Robinhood, a U.S.-based financial services known mostly for its fee-free stock investing platform, will now also offer zero-fee checking and saving accounts that will pay you 3% interest starting in early 2019. As a comparison, even the BEST rates for online banks are just over 2%, and one-year CDs, which tie up your money hover around 2.5%. As you can imagine, with interest that high, there is already a waiting list. To sign up for this great opportunity, please click here to get the process started.

Disclaimer: I am not getting paid for this advertisement. I have been looking into using this investment platform in 2019 and my buddy, Kieran, let me know about this deal via his blog last night. Since I talk fairly regularly with most folks subscribed to this blog, I wanted to share what seems to be a great deal. As a reminder, I am not licensed to give financial advice, so this information is only for educational and entertainment purposes.

Thinking Small (yet profoundly) ....

“To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty and leave the rest for others that come after than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of anything.” – Sir Isaac Newton
