Marcus High-Yield Savings Account rate now 0.6%

Post by Marseille07 »

[Moved into a new thread from: Marcus $100 bonus --admin LadyGeek]

Marcus HYSA now 0.6%. Ally still 0.5%. I think both go up more after the May FOMC.

SoFi checking and savings have 1.25% APY and $300 bonus with direct deposit. Without direct deposit interest is 0.70%.

Yeah, direct deposit is doable but I don't like the string attached. Tbh every HYSA will be offering 1.25% by EOY imo.

These HYSA rates will keep going up, especially with the Fed poised to hike by 50bps in May.

Very nice. I'm also waiting for their checking offering as well. They've been talking for a couple of years now, but all talk so far.

[Thread merged into here --admin LadyGeek]

I just received notice that my Marcus Savings account rate increased by a whole 0.1%. They’re gonna have to do better than that if they wanna keep me. Anyone seeing competitors like Ally going up too?

Vio money market is currently 0.71. They do still enforce the no-longer-federally-enforced 6 withdrawal limit.

It's my emergency fund, so I can't tie it up in short-term Treasuries. And breaking the fund into smaller chunks doesn't add enough interest to make it worth the hassle.

I am pulling $5500 out of my emergency fund to buy the rest of my I Bond allocation next week, and will top that back off over the rest of the year.

Six month TBills are 1.3%. Anything more than a little working capital at a bank makes no sense.

Why not? Treasury bills are perfectly liquid.

The additional yield of short term treasury notes is not worth the risk of having to sell them prior to maturity for an emergency fund.

An extra 0.23% of yield on $50k isn't changing anyone's life. Now if you have $5M in your emergency fund that's a different story!

+1 All you need to do is let Marcus know your AARP membership number, and they automatically add the .10% to rate changes across accounts.
I was happy to see 0.7% on my savings, and 0.75% on no-penalty CDs today.

I agree; that's why I don't have an emergency fund. I keep enough in an AMEX account to cover 4 quarters of estimated tax payments but that isn't a risk issue, it is more for convenience for my spouse in case I bite the dust mid-year - she won't have to worry about tax payments until April, 2023.

As HMSVictory points out, the extra money isn't worth the hassle.

My EF is $25k. $6k is already in a short term bond fund. So, $19k to use, but I wouldn't want to tie 1/4 for more than 3 months. I'd need to ladder 0 (HYSA), 90, 120, 180 days. An extra 0.20 at each rung isn't worth it for the money involved.

Same reason I don't do iBonds with my emergency fund.

7.61% is a fantastic risk free return but locking up the money for 12 months is a no go for emergency funds.

You can always layer in some I Bonds. It doesn't have to be all or nothing. It took a while, but I now have a 12 month EF with 9 months in I Bonds and 3 months HYSA/NPCDs.

agree; that's why I also don't pay attention to what the various banks are doing. My tax fund self-liquidates each year by January. The average balance isn't that much and it is pegged to a known liability. Other than that, my entire portfolio is my EF and has been since my early 40s.

I'm surprised Ally is the laggard here. My impression is that usually Capital One 360 is one of the last to raise. Also, Capital One never went to 0.50% -- they seemed stuck at 0.40% forever, but now jumped right up to 0.60%. If I were to bet (which I wouldn't), I'd say that Ally raises to 0.60% or maybe even 0.65% by Wednesday, April 27, at the latest. I'd be interested to know how much each of these institutions has in HYSA deposits. I suspect that. collectively, the amounts are staggering.

10.63T in total savings deposits.... most probably in accounts earning .05% or less at brick and mortar legacy banks.

4T in checking accounts alone. Its a sea of cash deposits.

Marcus HYSA now 0.6%. Ally still 0.5%. I think both go up more after the May FOMC.
Amex Bank is .6%
Live Oak Bank is .6%

I'll jump ship for .1%. For $10K, that's $10 a year...if my math is right. I throw nickels around like manhole covers.
I'll wait until after interest is paid to make the move...that's today.
I can transfer from Amex to Live Oak with a few clicks.
Amex does same day transfers, if you start early enough.

Why do you think that Marcus checking will be better than Ally? At this point there is not reliable information about feature of this beta product.
American Express recently released new checking account - https://www.americanexpress.com/en-us/b ... -checking/ , with Amex at least you know that mobile app and customer service would be good.

Just my observation so far that's all. I know Ally unnecessarily holds my money for 3 days every time I ACH. They're also slow to raise APY whereas Marcus is quick. Ally's auto overdraft feature is excellent, although I'm assuming Marcus would provide something similar.

Bask Bank is offering 1.25% with no strings attached. Google says they're connected to Texas Capital Bank, seems reputable enough. I moved my funds from Marcus to Bask after seeing the paltry increase to 0.7, will update if I have any problems.

I have a No Penalty CD at Ally and would like to do this too to take advantage of the higher rate. Is it possible to have the funds from the no penalty CD you are closing transfer directly to the new NP CD? I don't have a savings or checking account at Ally, and would like to avoid having the funds from the closed CD go from Ally to my checking account at another bank, and then back to Ally for the new CD. I could open a savings account at Ally just to facilitate the transfer, but would prefer to avoid opening yet another account unless that's the only way to transfer the funds between NP CDs within Ally. Thanks.

For those that want the liquidity of a savings account (vs say a Treasury bill), why would you go with Marcus over Vanguard Municipal MM Fund? The latter currently has a federal tax-free yield of 0.63%. That’s over 0.8% at the 24% tax bracket.

I would guess probably not, but don't know for sure.

I don't know if they let you open the new CD without funding it immediately? If so, you might be able to pick that as the account to distribute your early withdrawal? No idea if that is an option, I have the savings account and just send everything through there.

I did kind of expect Marcus to bump it to 0.8% as well given the Fed hiked 50bps this time. Oh well.

I have a No Penalty CD at Ally and would like to do this too to take advantage of the higher rate. Is it possible to have the funds from the no penalty CD you are closing transfer directly to the new NP CD? I don't have a savings or checking account at Ally, and would like to avoid having the funds from the closed CD go from Ally to my checking account at another bank, and then back to Ally for the new CD. I could open a savings account at Ally just to facilitate the transfer, but would prefer to avoid opening yet another account unless that's the only way to transfer the funds between NP CDs within Ally. Thanks.
I would guess probably not, but don't know for sure.

I don't know if they let you open the new CD without funding it immediately? If so, you might be able to pick that as the account to distribute your early withdrawal? No idea if that is an option, I have the savings account and just send everything through there.
Thanks for replying. I suspect I'll need to open a savings account there.

I just moved from T-Mobile to SoFi. So far so good…and 1.25% plus $300 bonus for direct deposits works for me.
