Where to Park Your Cash Now

These money market accounts, CDs and credit union checking accounts offer decent interest rates.

Money market funds are paying next to nothing, and a rate of 1% on any bank product is good these days. Still, you need a place to stash your cash. We’ve rounded up the best-yielding accounts, all of which are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. or the National Credit Union Administration up to $250,000.

EverBank requires a $1,500 balance and guarantees that you’ll earn 1.01% on up to $50,000 for the first year in its money market deposit account. Barclays pays 1% interest on its online savings account, with no minimum deposit.
