Marcus Takes Hammer to 13-Month No Penalty CD, Adds Other Terms
Aug 11, 2019

The rate on Marcus's 13 Month No Penalty CD product, which BestCashCow had strongly recommended since its launch late in 2018 at 2.35%, has fallen to 2.15% APY.   Marcus has also added a 7-month No Penalty product at 2.25% and a 11-month No Penalty product at 2.20%.   We don't find these products as compelling.   See all online special term CDs here.

Marcus Cuts Online Savings Rate to 2.00%
Aug 27, 2019

Marcus Cuts All CD Rates by at Least 15 Basis Points, Eliminates Some Products
Sep 13, 2019

Marcus, Goldman Sachs' online bank, has lowered the rate on all of its CD offerings by at least 15 basis points.   Their one-year CD product is now at 2.25%, down from 2.40%.   They have also eliminated all of their No Penalty CDs, except the 7-month one which is now offered at 2.10%.   BestCashCow previously wrote very favorably about the No Penalty CDs, and we still see the 7-Month No Penalty CD as being an attractive alternative to their 2.00% savings online rate.

    I have been very pleased here for years with all of the name changes, etc (GE Capital to Goldman Sachs to this). I did not appreciate the recent and quiet rate drop am glad that I learned about this no penalty CD. I was able to lock in a rate for 13-months with no penalty and only a $500 minimum.

    I made a mistake with the timing of some transactions and tried to move $300k into my Goldman Sachs account from a corresponding account before the money had arrived in the corresponding account. A few hours after I entered the transaction as an immediate transfer, I realized it would be rejected and tried to call Goldman to cancel the transaction because I thought they would charge me some enormous fee. I reached the rep in a second and he said that there is never a fee for anything like this, or a fee at all! Right there they won my business. Barclays or or Ally or Synchrony would have raped me for this.

    Well one would wait for it to clear before trying to move it somewhere else. Besides the moving of the money from bank to Bank loses interest. Those banks have similar interest rates so your not really earning that much more .

    Opened here because the rate is always higher than the other established places. Every thing is easy, but I wish they would be faster to raise their rates.

    Online Savings Rates

    I have been using Marcus for over 6 months. Their CSRs are helpful and opening up an account was easy. Linking to external accounts (4) only produced one hitch but Marcus sleared that up. The transfers go through pretty quickly and they are aggressive at hiking their deposit rates before other online banks.

    I had an issue with a large transfer from HSBC that was delayed (by HSBC of course). Meanwhile I had made some transfers out of my Marcus account and realized I would be dramatically overdrawn. I called Marcus and the first thing that their fellow explained is that I would never ever be charged a fee. I found that very refreshing.
