Best Savings Account Rates Tampa, Florida

Last week the Federal Reserve Bank raised the discount rate from 1/2 percent to 3/4 percent. A higher discount rate won't translate into higher savings account rates and money market account rates. We’ll have to wait until the Fed funds rate is raised to drive those rates higher.

Right now the national average savings account rate/money market account rate for accounts with balances of $2,500 is only 0.347 percent. Of course there are banks and credit unions that offer rates higher than the national average rate.

Right now, American Express Bank, Bancorp South and Bank of Internet are all offering a savings account rate of 1.49 percent with an annual percentage yield of 1.50 percent.
