    Online Savings Rates

    There is a lot to like about this account. American Express is a real organization and you are not playing with a bunch of amateurs like with a lot of these banks. However, they will be sure to lower the rate when others do. And, if you ever need to call for support (transfers, etc.) you can be sure that their call center reps will do everything possible to not be helpful (some of my experience may be due to the pandemic).

    I was very impressed with American express national bamk when I opened my first account with them.
    the representative who helped me open the account was knowledgable besides being efficient and courteous.
    these qualities are often difficult to find in todays banking employees.

    Online CDs 12 Month Rates

    Not such great CD rates from a company that has completely lost its edge.

    I am in complete agreement with Jody.

    I really don't care whether it has lost its edge. I will take a couple pennies less from a bank that is well recognized and provides outstanding customer service any day.

    I have been a customer since I first saw this bank advertised on this site in 2009. The rate is a little lower, but the service has always been excellent and very respectful. Nothing short of what you expect from Amex. Plus, I can now link the account to my credit card profile which is helpful.

    Online Savings Rates

    The good service makes it a keeper despite a savings rate which is no longer so great and no way to increase it by rolling short term CDs (like with Sallie Mae).
