    • All you need to do is click “Promotion Page” and it takes you to the sign up page. It’s an easy google search as well.

  1. current CDs at banks offer 2.5% interest or more. so if you figure what 6 months at 1.65 is plus the 500 it is pretty much a wash.
    If CO offered 2.5% on balance plus the 500, then you have a great deal… otherwise.. eh!

    • 1.85% on $50,000 for 1 yr = $925. Adding $500 to that equals $1495. You need 3% to top that. How long are you going to have to tie up your money for 3%?

    • Comparing CDs to a money market savings account is ridiculous. There are a lot of people that have a reserve cash fund needed to transfer money around to various places as needed (i.e. checking account, college, other banks, etc.). CDs do not give you this ease or luxury and if you need the money you will most likely incur a penalty. The bottom line is that for a reserve MM cash fund this is an excellent bonus and no other savings account can beat it.

  2. Do you have to maintain the 50k throughout the 60 days? I would like to deposit the 50k then move all but 10k out a week later. Would that disqualify me?

    • I wouldn’t be surprised if it did. If it does we will post a new article about it to let you guys know.
