Online banks like Ally Bank are able to offer some of the most competitive rates in the business because they don’t have the overhead costs of traditional brick-and-mortar banks and can pass the savings on to customers in the form of great rates. In fact, Howard Bayliss, a certified financial planner with Core Financial Planning, LLC, in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, says he steers his clients toward online banks for their cash savings. Ally Bank offers rates that are consistently among the most competitive in the country, a fact that's borne out by a look at the long-term average of our Online Savings Account variable APY compared to the long-term average interest rate on savings accounts as reported by the FDIC.

Your alternative options to the First Home Saver Account (FHSA)

  The end of the first home saver accounts (FHSA) scheme means Australians who have put their money into the FHSA have lost a great vehicle to build up their savings. From 1st July 2015, all accounts under the FHSA scheme will revert back into normal savings accounts, and there will be no restrictions on how the money can be used. What was the FHSA scheme? The Federal Government’s First Home Saver Accounts scheme was introduced in 2008 with the aim to help Australians to buy their first home. Under the scheme, the government would make a contribution worth 17% of the first $6,000 deposited each year, giving a tax-free gift of up to $1,020 per year on-top of the interest from the bank.

How Interest Rates Work on Savings Accounts

Let’s pretend you had $1,000 in the bank, and it was earning 1% interest. Fat chance, eh? In these days of rock-bottom interest rates on savings accounts, you’re doing pretty well if you get a whole 1% interest. But this story is all about compound interest and how it works, and 1% is a good round number to use as an illustration of how it works. Interest on Interest In the simplest of worlds, $1,000 at 1% interest per year would be, at the end of a year, $1,010. But that is, literally, simple interest, paid only on the principal.
