Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.
As of this week, I’ve collected $28.69 in Lending Club loan repayments, which corresponds to $20.09 in principal and $8.95 in interest. Since I now have over $25 sitting in my account, it’s time to reinvest in another note.
Regular reinvestment is an important part of maximizing your Lending Club returns, as your cash balance doesn’t actually earn any interest. What I didn’t realize until today, however, is that they make it extremely easy to reinvest as soon as you have enough cash on hand.
As you can see from the screen below, there is a “Reinvest” link in the box along the right side of the main screen (see below).
After clicking that link, you’ll be taken to a screen that lets you specify parameters for automatic reinvestment. Simply tell them the minimum cash balance that you want to accrue prior to reinvestment, your target interest rate, and how often you want them to contact you.
Once you have everything set up, Lending Club will automatically pick out a basket of loans that matches your parameters and send you an e-mail telling alerting you that you have a pending reinvestment. All you have to do is click a link to approve it and they’ll fill your order. Very easy. Open your account today.
