Update: Looks like Emigrant Direct is struggling to get back online.
Update #2: Looks like Emigrant Direct is back up, at least for me. Click through to get my first initial impressions of their new interface.
I just received an e-mail from Emigrant Direct stating that they’re rolling out a new site on July 24th, at which time you’ll need to use a new secure access code to login. The code should show up in your (snail) mailbox any day now (although ours won’t show up for a bit longer — it has to be forwarded as I still haven’t changed our mailing address with Emigrant). Also note that their site will be inaccessible from 5:00 PM EST on Friday, July 21st until the new site is unveiled at 9:00 AM on Monday, July 24th. How lame is that? An online bank is essentially shutting down for three days so they can update their website… Oh well, if you’ll need access to your money between July 21st-24th, you better login ahead of time and initiate the transfer.
