This Wealthfront Account offers 2.07% APY on your deposits

Whether you’re planning to save money from your paychecks towards a new car, down-payment on house or a rainy day fund, you should be aware that you can do so while accruing 25 times the national average earned interest rates.

Better for short-term or long term?

Offering a 2.51% APY on deposits it outright beats the current inflation (May 2019) of 1.9% and also leads the market with it’s no requirement policy (and is FDIC insured). It does not offer the highest yields as offered by TABbank which offers 4% (but has requirements to meet every-month). A close second is the Checking Account offered by All America Bank (2.40% APY).

This account is good for short term (<5 years) thanks to free unlimited transfers as many times as you want. It is good for parking money towards long term savings goals but is not a substitute for investments. Wealthfront does offer an investment plan too but I’ll cover that in a separate article (website link). You may however use THIS LINK to create a funded account and waive the management fee (for investment account)
