Tiny bit of interest earned

April 10th, 2009 at 10:03 am

I earned $0.28 in interest in my savings account. I guess I will put toward my baby/emergency fund, bringing it to $2954.07. I won't bother putting on my sidebar. Smile

On another note, I totally forgot that my health savings account (HSA) will earn interest on the contributions that I don't withdraw. I've already earned $0.33 in there; not a ton, but heck, when's the last time health care gave me some money instead of bleeding me dry? Makes me think I should hold all my receipts and avoid reimbursing until the end of the year (or if I need the money for something) so I can earn a bit more interest.

    Thanks for the post, ceejay. I have been away for a while. Hopefully, I'll just get back into the groove.

    Yep! this is the great advantage of the HSA. In three years we have gone from tiny interest deposits (16 cents!) to pretty good amounts ($16/month), plus because we got our balance above a certain level, they stopped charging us account fees. Best part is that I know that money I spent is there if we really need to get reimbursed. But for now, since we can afford it, I leave it alone and enjoy the balance going up each month!
