Thanks, Mark. I included the Capital One MM for Costco members under "Promotional and special rates" in the list of the best rates.

Cheers,

Mark

is www.pulaskibank the right web site ? no details available at this site

according to this website http://goliath.ecnex...owse_CI_6022-13
the www.pulaskibank is correct
any details on the offer ? no details on rates are given on the pulaski web stie - looks like th site of a very sleepy small town bank, completely unsuited to handling large amounts if internet traffic and internet customers

I once tried to open a credit card account with them. They asked for several references including family members. And they said they would really check out those references. Very unusual compared with major credit card applications.

The website address seems to be correct. I think you would have to call the bank to find out more details because they do not list their rates on the website.

I called Pulaski Bank today and mentioned this offer, and they had not heard of it. They said they have no savings accounts with rates higher than 4% (their highest CD rate was 4%). However, they said on their First Rate Checking account, they are offering an introductory rate of 4.91% (5% APY) for the first 6 months for balances up to $10,000. Any money above $10,000 only earns 0.50%. To avoid the $12 monthly service charge, maintain a minimum balance of $1,000 and make at least 5 withdrawals per month. They said any kind of debit counts: automated withdrawal, ATM, debit card, etc. So I say just link it to another account like ING and schedule 5 recurring transfers each month. They said they cannot open an account over the phone or online, but they said they would mail me an application, even though I live nowhere near Arkansas. So this isn't just a local deal.

Thanks for the research! I sent for an application via email. 1% interest differential for 6 months translates to about $50 in 6 months for $10K. BTW, they don't have a general toll-free number (only Telebank: 1-800-564-5299). One must read the application carefully and weigh all pros and cons before committing serious money to them.

This CD could be considered a MM. They are offering a 9 month No Penalty CD at 4.25%, 10,000 Min. You can withdraw anytime with no penalty after 6 days. I have used this bank for awhile and they offer DIF which covers any amount over FDIC.
