I’ve had a few e-mails asking me how many money market rates are worth investing in when you only have a small amount such as $100.

Well, here’s the list as of August 26, 2008 –

Corus Bank - 4.00% APY - $100 minimum

Flagstar Bank - 3.65% APY - $1 minimum

OnBank - 3.50% APY - $1 minimum

Bank of Internet - 3.46% - $100 minimum

All of the banks mentioned above continue to show on the top ten money market rates.  If you’d like more information on the banks, click on the link.

If you’re in the hunt for a very reasonable savings account that gives you a top ten rate, you may want to look into Washington Mutual’s Savings Account.

Here’s what you get with the account (Keep in mind you will need to open up a checking account as well) –
