Default Best bank to save money

Hi all,

I was wondering which banks provide the best savings plan and what type of account I should open. I'm not a high earner therefore I wish to save at least $200/month for a least 6 months and followed by at least $500/month continously. I was wondering what type of account should I open for better interest and which bank.

I would like to thank those for their sincere replies. Thank you

Any local bank will do. I do not think there is much difference. Just decline the ATM card so that your savings remain saved. : )

OCBC Monthly Savings Account

No offense intended, but I think based on the amounts you have quoted, it makes more sense to go with a bank with branches and atms near your home and office than go about scouting for interest rate deals.

Any difference is likely to be very small at <0.2% for similar account comparison and that hardly justifies incuring inconvienience for the additional interest. Banking in your scenario should be more about accessibility and relevance of banking facilities rather than pittance rate differences.

How's the saving coming along? I was looking online the other day and I notice that DBS has a autosave feature for one of their savings account. Every month you choose a amount to be deducted from your salary and put into your savings account. So you don't have to keep thinking about how much you need to put aside, it's done automatically for you.

the best savings account to save money in is the CPF!!! Forced deduction every month on pay day whether you like it or not... Backed by stable goverment, 100% capital gauranteed with decent interest rates..... the only problem is that it is a fixed deposit for life... Can put in but cannot use for anything much other than buying your HDB....

There are lots of banks where you can save your money but do a background check first before depositing your money. Some banks are into announcing bankruptcy also but they're just hiding it.
