CIT Bank Savings Builder account now up to 2.45% APY
« on: January 08, 2019, 10:41:58 AM »
CIT Bank just launched a new account called "Savings Builder" a few months ago that requires either a monthly deposit of $100 or more, or $25,000 in funds, to get the rate. Initially it was offering 2.25% APY. I already had a different account with CIT so I opened a Savings Builder. And now, the APY is up to 2.45%!

Pretty impressive when you compare it to bond fund rates right now.

Thanks for the heads up!  Already had a money market account with them and just swept all my funds over to the new Savings Builder account.  I automatically had funds going to the money market account every month earning 1.85%.  Win win!

I actually had a Savings Builder account at CIT with $25k in it at 2.25%.  Then Redneck upped it's normal, unrestricted rate to 2.25%.  I ended up needing the money, so pulled it all out of CIT, and once I could build up again, just stuck it in Redneck.  Redneck caps at $50k now, and my next go-to is Ally.

Yah, I have a lot of accounts floating around out there with nothing in them.
