Good rate on saving account 4.5%

May 22nd, 2008 at 12:58 pm

I've had my dad checking on an AARP saving account paying 4.5% Turns out you don't have to be over 50 to get this rate. He got the papers yesterday. It's FDIC insured. Minimum balance is $1. I've heard you have to have an AARP membership which costs around $13 a year. You can have an associate membership if under 50. Their CDs and MMA looks really good also. About 2% higher than I've found elsewhere. I plan to open an account next month when some money gets freed up. My dad is going to open one too.

The website is http://www.aarpsavings.com/

I got 4 free trial size bags of Target brand coffee to give to my brother for xmas on Sunday. Met a friend for lunch at Ruby Tuesday's. We shopped and went to see Narnia. I liked the movie. We wandered thru Costco looking at prices. They had really beautiful fruit. But I decided it wasn't worth the membership fee. For one thing it's too far away from me, plus I usually get better deals waiting for sales and using coupons.

I bought one of those Ped Egg things at Linens N' Things using a 20% off coupons. So about $8. I really like it. It smooths the cracks on the bottom of my feet. They feel great.

I finished listening to the library book on tape Blue Dahlia by Nora Roberts. Romance. Very good.

Finished reading my book Night Scents by Carla Neggers. Romance. OK

    YA this looks like a good deal! I'll check it out. Thanks.

    I've gone back and forth about joining AARP. I think it would be viable for me to do so because of their health insurance plans for people my age (50) and older. What I'm paying now is ridiculous! My only concern is if Aetna will put riders on my new insurance plan like Unicare did.

    As for the savings account, that is indeed a good deal. Lots of reasons to join. Thanks for your input. Smile

    My parents are AARP members, so I will have to chat with them about this account. Thanks for the info!

    Also, thanks for the info on the Ped Egg. We've wanted one for a while, but have been hesitant because we didn't know if it was really any good or not. Smile

    Thanks. I've been wondering about the pedegg as well wondering if it was really worth it.

    I'm looking into AARP as well.
