Hi,
I just avoided moving my savings to Kaupthing Edge - not a lot but would have been annoyed if I had even though ING have stepped in. I'm thinking of doing what friends of mine have done which is to buy Premium Bonds. I know there's no interest paid on these but there's a slight chance of a win each month but most importantly your original capital is safe and can be cashed in when necesary.

I'm happy with ING - not happy with current interest rates, but account pays better interest than my bank checking or savings accounts, FDIC safe and assets fluid and available for business when needed.

I've used ING for a while and have been very happy with it, although the interest rate went down quite a bit a few months ago. As Wino mentioned, it's still far better than most banks! It's nice that there are no minimums or fees (that I'm aware of), but be aware that it can take a few days to transfer the money to your regular banking account. That may be an advantage, though -- it might help reduce the chance of impulsively spending your savings on that big screen TV.

what he said (y) and I don't have to worry that the banks not open and I don't have to deal with a teller

That's why I charged it to a credit card....then I had 30 days to move the money :p
