    Very nice but still very low interest rates, isn’t it? I found a very exceptional rate for a high interest cd at http://www.themoneymakers.org/englishindex.html Is there any expert who can give me more information on this offer.

    A comment has been made before about this on the blog so I’m a little suspecious about whether “Connie” has a real question or is just leaving a link. Especially because of how the original link was left.

    Other than the website in the above comment I haven’t found much information on this CD. In the past I’ve tried to goto the website for the PDIC (Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation) and it doesn’t open.

    Since the “bank” offering the CD is outside of the US, you won’t have much recourse if something should go awry.

    So yes our savings rates are low, but you aren’t going to lose your principal either. We know the FDIC pays out when banks fail and we don’t have to worry about chasing failed banks down.
