    I’ve had one for a few years. Like you, I was interested in Discover for the high APR. I don’t know what specific questions you might have, but I never have had a problem with it. I mainly use it for a secondary savings account for big ticket items–transfer in money and let it grow. Because I don’t do much with it, it seemed to have the most benefits for me (i.e. the APR as opposed to other programs that are available.

    I have it and love it.  Most banks have horrible rates right now, and the rate there isn’t the greatest right now but can’t really expect much more in this economy.

    That’s a great rate – comparable to a good CD right now. Just make sure that they don’t charge you for taking money in/out and that it is easy to do so if needed in a hurry.

    We have our major savings in an Everbank acocunt right now at that same rate, and a smaller savings account with CitiBank at half the rate (it is our short term savings, so we wanted easier access).

    I use ING’s Orange Savings. I had started an account with them when their rates were over 4%, but they’re down to a measly 1% right now.’

    I also use SmartyPig for more short terms goals. They’re at 1.10% (though it’s been higher) but it’s not really for long term savings. You can cash out to gift cards and get an additional percentage of your savings added to the gift cards, so if you know you want to save for aTV from BestBuy you can get some free money towards it, which is always awesome.
