No, this isn’t some kind of get rich scheme that I’m pitching but rather something everyone who has a savings account should really consider. According to gobankingrates.com, as of April 2016, the average savings account interest rate was only .06%. That’s right, only .06%!
Believe it or not, though, I have seen many clients who branch at their local (insert giant bank name here) earning a measly .01%. That means if you had $50,000 sitting in a savings account there, your annual interest would add up to a whopping $5!
