A few generations ago, U.S. Savings Bonds were a popular gift (not to mention a lesson in the virtue of saving) for children. Savings bonds still are a popular financial product and provide a good example of a low-risk, fixed-income investment. You receive a regular return, you can invest minimal amounts and you pay no or low taxes on your interest income. However, cashing in a savings bond before maturity can result in early withdrawal penalties. If you're looking for a simpler way to save that pays a competitive rate of interest and allows you access to your money when you need it, a money market account might be worth considering.

With an Ally Bank Money Market Account, you have easy access to your money and the peace of mind that comes with knowing your deposits are FDIC-insured up to the maximum amount allowed by law. An Ally Bank Money Market Account requires no minimum balance to open and no monthly maintenance fees. You get free standard checks and a debit card.
