Purepoint Raises 1-year CD rate to 2.80%
Dec 7, 2018

Purepoint has raised their one-year CD rate to 2.80% from 2.60% today.   The rate requires a minimum deposit of $10,000, and is still below the best online one-year CDs.   Purepoint's one-year CDs have a 181-day early withdrawal penalty which is higher than that on one-year CDs from Barclays Bank Delaware, Ally Bank, Live Oak and others.

Purepoint Cuts No Penalty CD to 2.00%
Jul 1, 2019

Purepoint's 13-Month No Penalty CD is a product that we recommended when it launched at 2.60% and continued to recommend at 2.50%.    The rate has now been cut to 2.00% and depositors should now look to the higher No Penalty rates from Marcus and Ally first.

    Online Savings Rates

    This bank hasn't raised their rates! Maybe I was sleeping but I need to get out of here fast.

    Online Savings Rates

    Lost in all of these reviews is that Purepoint is the bank that let's you have tons of corresponding accounts to which you can ACH money (their limit is something like 10). So, if you want to play this game of earning more than you can get by leaving your money with Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Chase (and it is a game worth playing) and having FDIC insurance at all of them, Purepoint is basically the first account you should open as it enables you to get large amounts of cash fast in and out of the smaller banks.

    Online Savings Rates

    Purepoint is great. Only Citizens Access is better and I've had all of these. I have nothing to gain by saying this, but I would opt for Purepoint when the rates are comparable.

    Online CDs 13 Month Rates

    I've been using Purepoint for a couple years now never had a problem. Rates always seem to stay in the top 25% of online banks. No problem getting through to customer service and the quickest transfers I've found with online banks. I would recommend.
