On today’s episode of The Personal Finance Hour, I’ll join Jim from Bargaineering to discuss the wonderful of banking. We’ll talk about online banks, offline banks, high interest savings accounts, current CD rates, and more. (We’ll also talk about how to optimize your accounts.)

This show will air live at 3pm Pacific (6pm Eastern). It’s much more entertaining for everyone when you call in to participate. We’d love to hear how you use your bank accounts. Do you have any tips or tricks you can share? Call us at 1-347-327-9144 share (or join the rowdy crew in the chat room).

Update: The show is over. Thanks to the five people who called in. We had a good time chatting about the difference between banks and credit unions, the virtues of reward checking accounts, the importance of customer service, and just what a money market account lets you do. Tune in next week when we chat about being thankful (surprise surprise).
