Scouting for good investment rates

For the past month, I’ve been checking out online websites of different banks to compare which bank gives the highest interest rates. When I was still single, I started out with BPI and when Jeff and I got married, we opened another account with BDO. Although we’re happy with both banks, it won’t hurt to look for other options that can give higher rates especially for a time deposit account.

I am married for 1 year and 3 months to be exact. Everything is peachy and no major arguments weren’t solved at the end of the day. The usual give-and-take relationship must always prevail and patience is imperative. Unfortunately, failed marriages are rampant nowadays. Incompatibilities, wrong decisions, falling out of love, third parties and money matters are some of the causes. One useful tip I’ve found “How to avoid money from destroying your marriage” will surely help couples in their relationships. I particularly applaud the author on stressing out the importance of saving for the future. Allotting a percentage of your salaries no matter how small will do wonders in the future, not only for the couple but for their future children as well.
