There are 3-4 accounts.
Hsbc global Everyday
Uob one
Maybank isavvy
Scb esaver

All are near 2%~

Alternatively opened a stashaway simple account for parking. About 1.5-1.9%.
This one not as safe as above.

Still holding at Citibank for 1.49%...until I find a clearer simpler way to “park“ my money.

ISavvy Islamic can only be opened at branch, not online. Ignore what they said about the iSavvy-i interest. The bank staff don’t seem to know much about the account. I had to show them the webpage that stated both versions of iSavvy enjoy the additional promotional interest.

Closed account today morning. Rep gave me a form to fill where I filled the reason to close account as low interest . Whole thing was done in less than 5 mins . Citi is kind of expecting mass closure of this account .

Are both the interests paid based on the new rate and up to yesterday's date?
Thanks

No need to go branch to close. I closed my maxigain account by messaging them online using the online banking message system.

No idea. I only had 15k in my account so I didnt ask much. Just did a FAST transfer of 15k to other account and made the balance zero before walking into the branch . Now I login into Citibank app , I no longer see that account .it just shows my credit card account .

Are both the interests paid based on the new rate and up to yesterday's date?
Thanks

OCBC did a $110 vouchers for every 10k deposited during CNY 2019, must maintain for 6 months.

Hoping for something good during CNY 2020.
