Ally Bank is a popular online bank that offers a variety of financial products. Like many online banks, Ally’s high-yield savings account offers a competitive interest rate, making it a solid choice for consumers looking to earn a better return for an emergency fund.

Savers can also take advantage of Ally’s savings buckets, which lets them earmark portions of their savings account for different goals, like a new home or unexpected emergencies.

Ally was named the overall best bank as part of the 2023 Bankrate Awards.

Ally Bank savings account rates

Ally offers the same interest rate regardless of your balance. The account has no minimum deposit and no monthly fees.

Account name APY Minimum deposit
 Savings account 4.25% APY No minimum deposit

Note: The annual percentage yield (APY) shown was last reviewed between Nov. 27 and Dec. 3, and may vary by region.

How Ally savings accounts compare to top-yielding banks

Ally consistently offers solid rates on its savings account, but you can still find slightly higher APYs elsewhere if you’re looking for the absolute best rates on savings accounts. Banks such as Bread Savings and CIT Bank are currently offering yields exceeding 5 percent APY on their high-yield savings accounts.

If you already bank with Ally, or value the access to Ally’s other services, such as checking, lending or investing, it may not be worth switching to a different bank to earn a slightly higher rate.

Other savings options at Ally

Ally also offers a money market account, which pays a slightly higher interest rate, as well as certificates of deposit ranging from three months up to five years with competitive rates.
