Where to Score the Best Interest Rates on Your Savings #best #interest #rates #savings #accounts


Where to Score the Best Interest Rates on Your Savings

You can earn up to 2% and still sleep tight. Willing to take a risk? You could snag 4%.

For savers, the days of earning tantalizing rates on a wad of cash seem like a distant dream. If you need a safe place to park your money now, the prospects aren’t pretty. Money funds are paying almost nothing. The most generous rates on bank deposit accounts barely brush 1%. Even the highest-yielding Internet checking accounts, once heralded as the go-to place for great rates on up to $25,000, are paying 2% to 3%—and that’s only if you meet certain requirements, such as using a debit card several times a month. And agreeing to lock up your money for a few months or years doesn’t help much: A five-year certificate of deposit yields, on average, 1.19%. Rates aren’t moving up anytime soon, either. In response to the still-sluggish economy, the Federal Reserve announced last summer that it would keep short-term rates near zero through mid 2013—and maybe longer.

SEE ALSO: Kiplinger’s Economic Outlook: Interest Rates

Given the challenging environment, some financial planners are getting creative in the hunt for yield. Brent Perry, president of Piedmont Financial Advisors, in Indianapolis, has told clients with plenty of cash and a penchant for travel to look into accounts that offer frequent-flier miles instead of interest. With $50,000 parked in BankDirect’s Mileage Checking Account, for example, you could earn 60,000 American Airlines miles in a year. With that, he estimates, you could buy two round-trip domestic coach tickets worth about $500 minimum—an immediate return of 1%.

We’ve listed the top spots for eking out interest on your savings, depending on your tolerance for risk and how long you can tie up your money. You can also search for higher-yielding accounts at which shows you options from local banks and credit unions as well as from banks that accept deposits nationally.


No risk, low reward

For your emergency fund—at least three to six months’ worth of living expenses—and any other savings that need to be safe and immediately available, look to accounts insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. such as interest-bearing checking and savings accounts and money market deposit accounts. Each account is insured up to $250,000. (Credit union deposits are insured up to the same limits by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.)

With yields on money market deposit accounts as meager as they are—the average savings account pays less than 0.3%—rate shopping is essential. With a $2,500 deposit, you can earn 1.18% in a money market account at although you’ll trigger a $10 maintenance fee if your balance drops below $2,500. Other banks with good rates include AmTrust Direct ($500 to open an account) and MyBankingDirect ($5,000 to open an account). Both are affiliated with New York Community Bank, and both pay 1.15%, but at AmTrust Direct you need to maintain a $10,000 balance to qualify for that rate. Money market deposit accounts generally provide checks and an ATM card for withdrawing cash or to use for purchases. You can also transfer funds electronically to a linked checking or savings account. You are limited to six transfers per month, not including cash withdrawals at the ATM.

You can open a savings account at Alliant Credit Union with just $5, and it pays 1.15%. (A $10 contribution to Foster Care to Success, a nonprofit organization that serves foster teens, makes you eligible to join the credit union.) Or you can open an FDIC-insured savings account at CNBBankDirect, the online division of Citizens National Bank in Bluffton, Ohio, with just $1 and earn 1.05%. American Express Bank also offers a savings account with no minimum balance that pays 1%. You can link a savings account to a checking account to transfer funds.

If you meet the qualifications—which usually include banking online and using a debit card for purchases—a high-yield checking account is another option. The amount eligible to earn the highest rate is usually limited to $25,000 or less, and some of the best rates are available only to residents of the states where the bank does business. But Union State Bank. in Kansas, for one, is open to anyone and its My Rewards checking account pays 2.5% on deposits up to $25,000. You can find insured high-yield accounts offered by community banks and credit unions at Checking Finder .


The CD option

For money you can tie up for a few months or more—say, a portion of your emergency fund that you wouldn’t need for at least three months, or money earmarked for tuition or retirement income—consider certificates of deposit. CDs come with maturities that typically range from three months to five years, with longer maturities offering higher yields.

You can invest in a long-term CD even if you think you may cash out early or if you want to take advantage of rising rates—just be sure to check the interest penalty. For example, a five-year CD from Ally Bank. which yields 1.89%, charges a penalty of only 60 days’ yield if you withdraw the money early. But a five-year CD from Intervest National Bank, which offers a slightly higher rate of 2.00%, takes back half your interest with its early-withdrawal interest penalty of 30 months.

Constructing a CD ladder—putting chunks of cash in CDs of varying maturities—allows you to benefit from the best current yields and stay flexible enough to snag top rates down the road. When interest rates rise, you reinvest cash from shorter-term CDs to take advantage of higher yields. Your longer-term CDs will continue to earn interest at today’s highest rates. If you’d like to put more than $250,000 (the maximum that the FDIC will insure in a single account) in CDs, the Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS) offers a convenient way to invest your funds. You deal with one participating bank, which sets the rate and parcels out $250,000 chunks to some of the more than 3,000 participating institutions.

U.S. savings bonds are another supersafe investment for money you can tie up for a year. EE bonds pay low rates (0.6%) but I-bonds pay an attractive 3.06%. You can cash in savings bonds after 12 months, but if you redeem them before five years have passed, you forfeit the last three months’ worth of interest. The I-bond’s rate is composed of a fixed rate, currently 0%, that lasts for the life of the bond and a semiannual inflation rate that changes every six months. If you bought a $1,000 I-bond and redeemed it after a year, you’d still earn about 3% interest after the penalty. You must purchase savings bonds in an online Treasury Direct account.


Higher risk, higher reward

You can earn 3% or 4% in WorldCurrency CDs from EverBank. The CDs, which have maturities of three to 12 months, invest in currencies of foreign markets—a six-month CD invested in the South African rand, for example, recently yielded 3.68% (there’s a $10,000 minimum purchase). The CDs are FDIC-insured against bank failure, but you take on currency risk—you could lose principal if the U.S. dollar rises—so consider putting cash in a few different currencies to hedge against price fluctuations. The WorldCurrency Basket CD, with a maturity of three or six months, invests in a mix of three or more currencies. Basket CDs require a $20,000 minimum purchase.

If you’re willing to forgo FDIC insurance completely, explore ultra-short-term bond funds. Some of them suffered heavy losses during the downturn in 2008 and proved to be more risky than expected. And as with other bonds and bond funds, when interest rates go up, prices of short-term debt securities go down. But because of the bonds’ short maturities, substantial losses aren’t in the cards.

Many of these funds yield less than 2%, and much of your gains will be eaten up if expenses are high. TCW Short Term Bond I (symbol TGSMX ), an ultra-short fund with no sales charge and expenses of just 0.44%, recently yielded 2.2%. TCW also offers an intermediate-term bond fund, TCW Core Fixed Income (TGFNX ), that could be a low-risk cash substitute as long as interest rates remain low (see Bond Funds Instead of Bank Accounts? ). The fund yields 2.6%.

Best phone 2017: the 10 top smartphones we’ve tested

Update:The HTC U11 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium have entered our list of top phones – where do they place against the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7?

Thinking of buying a new phone? We’ve got the best smartphones of the moment all listed here – and we’ve got the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus handsets duking it out with the iPhone at the top of our list.

Here’s the ranking we’ve spent hours whittling down to a top ten. We take into account the power, specs, design and, most importantly, value for money of each handset.

(If the price is too high, check out our list of the best cheap handsets that won’t cost you more than 200).

Best smartphone

For those in a rush, here you go: the Samsung Galaxy S8 is the best smartphone in the world.

A new stunning design, amazing screen and great camera combined make it for the best phone you can buy right now. Be sure to take a look through the full best phone ranking though to know what’s best for your needs.

  • Already know your favourite operating system? Then check out our best iPhone or best Android phone round ups to see which is for you!
  • Not fussed with what’s below but not sure how long to wait for the next big hitters? Try our well-stocked iPhone 8 release date or Google Pixel 2 release date pages to help you out.
  • Find a good deal with TechRadar: mobile phone deals

10. Google Pixel

The best phone for pure Android

Supremely smooth performance

Bright, colorful full HD display

Battery life could be better

Assistant yet to realize potential

The Google Pixel is an excellent flagship phone that’s an impressive debut for Google as a manufacturer – and the new Assistant is a great Siri rival. If you’re OK with the price point, the Pixel is a breath of fresh Google air in a world of Android over-complication.

The 12MP camera on the back is one of the best on the market, while the clean, fresh Android Nougat interface is a joy to use.

There’s heaps of power under the hood making it perfect for gaming and multi-tasking, while the bright, colorful screen provides an excellent viewing experience for your movies and TV shows.

It may not be the most attractive handset on the market but it’s far from ugly. and what you can be sure of is a lot of bang for your buck.

  • What’s next? There’s little information out at the moment regarding the Google Pixel 2. but we do expect it to pack the new Snapdragon 835 chipset (or a slight upgrade on it) when it emerges around October this year – and it looks like it’ll be water resistant too.

Also consider: Like what you see, but need more screen real estate? You you’ll want the Google Pixel XL – the 5.5-inch brother of the Pixel which boasts an eye-popping QHD (that’s 2K) resolution.

How Windows 10 changes enterprise mobility management #mdm #mobility


How Windows 10 changes enterprise mobility management

Since its release 21 months ago, Windows 10 has forced companies to rethink how enterprise mobile management (EMM) is handled in their corporate environments.

Unlike its predecessors, Windows 10 comes with EMM tools, allowing enterprises to deploy and configure PCs and other Windows devices using so called “modern management” approaches that include mobile device management (MDM) API hooks and controls.

Many of the basic application and system provisioning functions required for business laptops and PCs running Windows 10 can now be done through the OS’s EMM control consoles, said Phil Hochmuth, IDC’s Program Director of Enterprise Mobility.

That means organizations with more recent Windows PC deployments can take advantage of consolidated management tools and unified policy and configuration platforms via unified endpoint management (UEM), Hochmuth said.

“Organizations that still have a large legacy Windows 7 deployment, or rely heavily on legacy Win32/64 applications will require legacy PC life-cycle management and software distribution tools, such as Microsoft SCCM, Quest KACE and LANDESK, among others,” Hochmuth said.

The new MDM functions are based on Microsoft’s Intune protocol. which was launched in 2011 and enabled UEM.

UEM allows all corporate devices to be managed across a variety of platforms, theoretically, at least, making it easier to lockdown devices and protect critical data.

Dave Johnson, a principal Forrester analyst covering infrastructure and operations, said he’s spoken with numerous IT pros who are trying to get their organizations out of the PC management business — and they’re asking if Windows 10 offers enough improvement to allow them to overhaul their PC management approach. In short, they want to know if they can get away with using an EMM platform to manage PCs instead of using conventional tools like Microsoft SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager).

“Over the next five years, we believe that Microsoft Intune and EMM offerings from other vendors such as VMware, MobileIron and Citrix will gradually displace conventional PC management tools like SCCM for PC management in large enterprises,” Johnson said via email.

Unlike previous Windows versions, Windows 10 was designed as an OS that gets regular feature upgrades – not just security and bug fixes — that are handled by enterprises on a monthly basis when “Patch Tuesday” updates arrive. Those once-or-twice-a-year updates have made it more difficult for companies to coordinate which version of Windows 10 their corporate environment uses .

In the past, one of the issues that made Windows upgrades painful was the vast tapestry of legacy apps that companies only revisited every three to five years for updates, “if that,” according to Johnson.

More frequent Windows releases, Johnson said, will push users to either update their applications more often, or choose new solutions from third-party vendors who can keep their commercial offerings up to date.

Andrew Hewitt, also an infrastructure and operations analyst at Forrester Research, said the he’s already seeing evidence that third-party EMM vendors are starting to focus on use cases that aren’t handled by Windows 10.

For example, VMware AirWatch, in partnership with Dell, recently released a slew of new functions for PC management, which include allowing IT admins to query and retrieve key system attributes and configure critical BIOS settings.

“MobileIron, too, is building out the number of GPOs [group policy objects] they manage, and they can also do other fairly mundane but important things, like change the desktop background or remove bloatware,” Hewitt said.

From an MDM perspective though, there will be more pressure to use MDM/EMM tools to keep PCs updated over the air, whenever possible.

“The challenge with that, though, is that there are still some functions, like re-imaging a PC that can’t be done over the air, so companies will still need to hang on to their conventional PC management tools, even as they start leveraging their EMM tools more in their day-to-day PC management activities,” Johnson added.

Additionally, Windows updates are large, requiring significant bandwidth to update large fleets of PCs — a challenge that many corporate networks aren’t yet up to meeting. Conventional PC management tools often offer clever solutions like peer-to-peer software distribution that can reduce network traffic, another reason MDM/EMM tools are only viable for a subset of enterprise PCs for now.

At its Build developer conference last month, Microsoft claimed 500 million devices are running Windows 10. Conversely, IDC has estimated that 162 million commercial licenses have been rolled out. IDC continues to predict strong growth for Windows 10 deployments in the enterprise, especially as the 2020 end-of-support date for Win7 gets closer.

“With Windows 10, Microsoft made an important and credible effort to improve the manageability of Windows. It’s a significant challenge because part of what makes Windows so powerfully attractive to IT pros is its flexibility and manageability,” Johnson said.

A note from Nellie

Food and gatherings were such an enormous part of my childhood. I fell joyously in love with entertaining and throwing parties when I first left home. I relish opening our door and sharing our table and a special meal with others. I love the celebration of honest everyday cooking and that is what my food is all about. When a meal is shared at our table or around our bench, the hectic pace stops! Not only do we enjoy the food and its many flavours, we stop and enjoy each other and all of the unique and incredible things that make us family and friends – how grateful I am that we came to find one another. Sharing food in this way brings a very special richness to my life – it is what make me….well, me .

I opened ‘Relish Mama’ very early in 2009 by turning a lifelong dream and passion of offering some of the best cooking classes into a reality. Cliché, it seems, but I followed a dream and have never looked back. Relish Mama is all about celebrating the everyday. It is about celebrating a shared table and simple but honest ingredients with those that choose to share our large kitchen bench and table and those that leave feeling a little more enriched and hopefully, a little more loved, elated and confident.

For me, good food and great home cooking is all about the passing on and sharing of knowledge with each other. Don’t hold it close to our chests – let’s share it. No matter how many restaurants I go to, nothing beats home style cooking prepared with love that is served at a table with those I love and who I can share a great laugh with – share myself with. This sort of sharing is good for the soul. It adds a little magic to our days.

It is about so much more than the food but good food and a shared table is where the magic truly begins!

Happy cooking to you all!
