Well, my friends, I need your help. I had been planning to research online savings accounts for an upcoming series of articles, but not for several weeks yet. Things have changed.
I recently received a $35,000 lump sum — I hesitate to call it a windfall for reasons that will be clear in a moment — and now I'd like to put it somewhere that I can earn more than 0.01% on my money! I want to find a good high-interest savings account.
But where? In 2019, which online savings account is best? Am I asking the right question? Is an online savings account the best place to put a mound of money like this?
First, let me explain why I'm even interested in finding a new savings account.
