I'm a fan of Digital Federal Credit Union (DCU) as well. In fact, I currently use their checking account as my primary checking account and have my mortgage with them as well (2.875%, 5/1 ARM).

I feel that between DCU and PenFed (Pentagon Federal Credit Union) I often have good mortgage rates and CD rates available.

I use the linked savings account with the high APR as my daughter's savings account! She's got about $500 in there so that works nicely.

By the way, Wakanda: origin of the name "Digital". I believe the credit union used to be in some way affiliated with the company DEC, a.k.a. Digital Equipment Corp. Yup, actually Google and Wikipedia gave me the answer: "DCU was chartered in 1979 for employees of Digital Equipment Corporation."

Enjoy the feeling of shoring up your finances!
