58. 0. Why would anyone put money into savings accounts? Literally one of the dumbest financial strategies ever. You may as well put it under a mattress.

I roll all my credit card rewards and bonuses into a special Christmas rate savings account for an emergency fund. It’s also laddered in CDs.

I also keep savings accounts for sinking funds for vacations.

I've got tons of it. I have no trouble exchanging it for anything I want in real goods and services.

Safer in a bank account if you know you need to save it for some important future payment. Like up coming taxes after a big sale. Even safer if you limit it to $250K in any one account.
