In states here, the saving account interest rate is close to %0, or nil. Can you believe it? Because they keep on lower the interest rate, and we just waste our time to deposit the money to the saving account. We don't have greater return from it. So, maybe the community banks have better option than the mega giant banks.

I imagine you can find at least 2% in the US, as the base rate here is 0.5% and over 3% is possible with the best paying accounts

wow, that is something new, and I never heard before. In the states here, the interest rate getting lower and lower. They just want to help the real estate industry, and the people struggling to survive under mortgage. So, that is the case here.

I am from the United States, and the interest from my bank was extremely low, and it is closed to 0% as you would know. Because the recent economic situation as you can see from the news report. I am not sure whether I have fixed or variable rates. I would say it is closed to none.
