Steam Wallet Beta

Steam Wallet is a new service Valve is beta testing to offer an alternate method of paying for games on the Steam service. As the name implies, the service allows you to store funds in a Steam-specific account instead of keeping your cash stuffed in the mattress.

wells fargo and bank of america still does the interest gain on certain types of checking accounts.

Most banks do, but usually their money market checking is something like .1-.2%, and often has fees that eats all the interest (which is hysterical, I might add!)

Oh yeah, here's BoAs, haha:
Advantage® with Tiered Interest Checking Interest Rate APY 1
Less than $10,000 0.05% 0.05%
$10,000 - $99,999 0.10% 0.10%
$100,000 and over 0.15% 0.15%


Seriously. .15%.
Hell, the regular savings is only. .05%, and this is their top-end savings:
Standard With Bonus Rate
Rate APY† Rate APY†
Less than $5,000 0.15 0.15 0.40 0.40
$5,000 - $9,999 0.15 0.15 0.40 0.40
$10,000 - $24,999 0.35 0.35 0.60 0.60
$25,000 - $49,999 0.35 0.35 0.60 0.60
$50,000 - $99,999 0.50 0.50 0.75 0.75
$100,000 - $499,999 0.55 0.55 0.80 0.80
$500,000 - $2,499,999 0.55 0.55 0.80 0.80
$2,500,000 and over 0.55 0.55 0.80 0.80


Yet my federal student loans are 6.5-8.5%. We're all vaguely screwed.
