Opening an FNBO Direct Savings Account (Update)

Written by Nickel - One Comment

Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.

This is just a quick followup to my earlier post about opening an FNBO Direct savings account. To recap, I filled out the application on Saturday night and they said they’d be make a couple of test deposits into our linked checking account within 1-3 business days.

As it turns out, the test deposits showed up on Monday morning, and I hopped back over to the FNBO Direct website shortly thereafter to verify them. With that done, I set up our login credentials and… Well, that’s it. We now have one of the best online savings accounts available. We’re currently on the road for a short family vacation, but I’ll be sure to publish more details once I’ve had more time to poke around behind the scenes.

  1. I’ll be interested to hear how this goes; I’m intrigued by the FNBO/ING deal but I wonder what inconveniences I’m not seeing when I imagine using one.
