SmartyPig Savings Pay 1.75%

SmartyPig Widget: "Check out my SmartyPig goals."

Have you used the SmartyPig website yet to save money toward a goal? 

I'm trying out SmartyPig now because I need new carpeting and have had no inspiration toward saving for it.  My household savings account in INGDirect was depleted down to $500 by roof and air conditioner repairs this year.  There isn't any money left over for the fun stuff, such as a new refrigerator, washer/dryer, carpeting.  Carpeting is top of my list! 

Smarty Pig is FDIC insured and the savings account work like any other online direct bank savings.  But
Smarty-Pig gives a great interest rate now, 1.75%.  Also, you can redeem for account a gift card at retailers, such as Lowe's and get additional cash back.

Have you saved for any goals using SmartyPig?
