Online Banking – Accounts And Tools
Using online banking accounts and tools really is the only way to go when it comes to your money. Its simple, by using the banks I mention on here, you earn more with your money and have the same FDIC assurance you have with any other bank. They are able to offer much higher rates for everyone because they don’t have the overhead of having a brick and mortar location (utilities, mortgage/rent etc.).
I have spent a lot of time researching different banks and I have a few that I highly recommend. Below, I have assembled a small list of the best banks I have found. The greatest thing about these banks is that you don’t have to worry about silly fees.
