What are high interest savings accounts?

Rounding it up

  • Most savings accounts offer earning interest, but there are some that can nearly keep up with inflation.

  • While there’s no set definition, a high interest savings account typically pays anywhere from 10 to 20 times the national average.

  • Interest is one of the most important things to consider when comparing different savings accounts.

  • Also remember to compare various fees, payment structures, and any additional advantages like savings features or superb customer experience.
