Currently, the best online savings account I have found (one with highest rating and easiest to use) is DollarSavingsDirect.com. All accounts are FDIC insured, according to law, and the current interest yield is 1.50%. This is the website branch of Emigrant Bank, which has been around since 1850. Quite a good deal! I have all of my emergency savings money in this account.
