Have you heard of CIMB bank?

It is a Malaysia bank and the only bank that offers 0.8% interest. It is quite high as compared to other banks. Actually when you plonk in a substantial sum like eg. $20,000, you can see the benefit of having such a high interests rate and the feeling is quite shiok when you see such high interests rate given.

May not sound anything but in long run it is very good, especially when you are planning to get married, pay for renovation, go for a honeymoon or planning a baby. 0.8% leh plus if you open up an account with them, there is a chance to win $1 million dollars!! I am really crossing my fingers and hope I could win the million dollars!

Difference between CIMB Savings and Current (which I remember to the best of my knowledge)

Below is a rough guide on the different banks' interest rate (Please note, different banks have different schemes and these are just some of the basic account. I may be wrong but they are taken from the websites based on the normal basic savings account that I can find).

I used to use Citibank Step-up interest Account because it was the bank that offers attractive interest among other banks and it forces me to save. But I have switched to CIMB now since it offers a better interest rate. 

I would recommend anyone reading this to go to CIMB to find out more and speak to the officer there or simply head to their website to find out more (especially the part on winning 1 million dollars!!).
