    Best Interest Rate For Savings
    Can you earn a decent interest rate on your money these days? My bank has a high yield CD with a a rate of 3.6%. I would think I could do better...

    That's about the best you can do right now with a CD or money market. Maybe 4%. Maybe a bit higher with a teaser intro rate. But I don't think you'll find anything significantly higher.

    Better Returns...
    I would say you could do much better by shorting stocks in the market right now! The slump shows no signs of stopping...

    I have a Blue card from amex. 1% of my purchases go to their no minimum balance savings account, currently paying 4%. You can also make deposits into the account.

    I've found its a great way to save money without realizing that I'm doing so.
