No. of Recommendations: 1
I'm looking for the best savings rates for an e-fund/contingency fund. It would be approx 3 mo savings, greater than $10k and less than $100k.

I don't want to waste time on rate chasing at obscure locations so I'm primarily looking at accounts where I believe the rates will be better than avearage over some modest amount of time

I'm considering:

SmartyPig - 3.05%
Ally (GMAC) No Penalty CD - 2.5%
Ally (GMAC) - 2.25%
Zion - 2.02%
Costco (Capital One) - 1.90%
Schwab Checking - 1.75%
Countrywide (BofA) - 1.65%
ING - 1.5%
ETrade Checking - 0.95%
Pen Fed - .65%

Is there anything else blatantly obvious that I'm missing?
