Affiliates Might Help Unlock Billions for Everyday Americans

Twitter Facebook Linked In Paper Plan

Do you cash in on interest?

Written by Brook Schaaf

You might be leaving money on the table. I don’t mean for your site or program but for your personal bank account, dear reader.

Americans have missed out on $42 billion in interest they might have earned in Q3 2022. You’ve probably long since gotten used to negligible interest payments in your checking and savings accounts; since the Fed has been raising interest rates (most recently to 4.75% with more to come), high-interest savings accounts have quietly crept up above 3%.

Bankrate highlights several online banking options, including affiliate marketing player CapitalOne. Additionally, there are non-bank fintech alternatives such as Tellus.

My wife and I easily set one of these up for our personal banking (easy for me, that is — she did all the work). My business banks, however, seem to be giving me the runaround. One said they have the option, but only for new accounts . . . one might almost believe they don’t want to pay more in interest.

Perhaps this is why we haven’t seen (or, at least, I haven’t noticed) a surge of affiliate offers around high-interest accounts, yet it would seem to be a great opportunity for winning a significant number of new customers.

Tellus has an affiliate program, and it (and its competitors) just might have an excellent opportunity to make a lot of people more than just a little change.
