Interest Rates Are Going Up-Are You Getting The Most From Your Savings?

RateSupermarket.ca Launches Their High Interest Savings Accounts Comparison

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 16, 2011) - RateSupermarket.ca, Canada's go-to rate comparison website for personal finance products like mortgages, credit cards, GICs, and insurance, has added a new product to their offering - savings accounts. Now Canadian consumers can easily compare the best offers on high interest savings accounts from all the leading financial institutions, in just one search.

"With interest rates being so low over the past few years, many Canadians haven't given their savings account a second thought," says Kelvin Mangaroo, President of RateSupermarket.ca. "But now, with the economy improving and rate hikes on the horizon, more people will turn their attention to the interest rates they're getting on their savings."

The new comparison tool asks visitors to select their province and the savings amount, the results then show the best interest rates available from a range of providers including the major banks and trust companies. The side-by-side comparison allows visitors to compare interest rates, minimum deposits and fees. 

The savings account section, http://www.ratesupermarket.ca/savings_accounts/, also includes a guide and top tips to help visitors with their research, in addition to a handy savings calculator that enables Canadian consumers to easily estimate their potential savings based on different ongoing contributions, compounding periods and rates.

At a time when Canadians are starting to shift from taking on more debt to paying it down, and from spending money to saving money, this new savings account comparison can help consumers easily find the product that will make their savings work harder. 

"It's quite simple, if you do your research and compare the market, there's a much greater chance you can jump start your savings," says Mangaroo.
