Marcus offers competitive interest rates on savings accounts and liquid CDs (certificate of deposit). With just $1 needed to open an account and earn interest at the highest rate, in addition to the lack of monthly maintenance fees and wire transfer costs, Marcus is designed to be simple and inexpensive.
