    PSA: Capital One Possibly Cutting Savings Rates, Bait and Switch

    FYI, I haven't confirmed this, but I'm hearing that Capital One cut the savings account rate to 0.6%. They now have a new savings account called "performance savings" with a better rate of 1.7%. So they cut their older accounts and added this new account, so if you want to get the 1.7% you have to contact them and manually switch it over.

    From what I gather this is pretty easy - you can do it on the web. The new performance savings is 1.7% on balances, more than their money market product.

    This is a shame as ING direct used to have the best rates, which is why a lot of people have Capital One accounts.

    There is already a thread about this started a couple of weeks ago.

    I'll go ahead and close this one. Head over there for discussion.
