This is a promotional offer for individuals who sign up for the Betterment Everyday Checking waitlist and applies to cash deposited into Savings for the duration of 2019. APY is 2.43% as of 07-10-2019 without the promotional offer that adds another 0.25%. APY is a variable rate and may change at any time. Current APY can be found here.

This is the highest rate for high yield accounts, a spot previously held by Wealthfront. It does have the extra requirement of joining the waitlist for a checking account though, and the 2.69% APY is only until the end of the year.
