Milli Savings Account Review: 5.25% APY (App Only)Milli is a new app-only savings account that is backed by the FDIC insurance of First National Bank of Omaha (FNBO). iOS and Android apps available. They came out of the gates at 5.00% APY but recently raised to 5.25% APY. Here are the highlights:

  • 5.25% APY as of 7/20/23
  • No monthly fees, no minimum balance required.
  • Ability to split money into multiple “Jars”.
  • App-only. Currently requires iPhone iOS 15.0+, or Android OS 8.0+.
  • Uses the Allpoint ATM network of 55,000 surcharge-free ATMs worldwide.
  • No paper checks. No checkwriting ability. No mobile check deposit.

For you rate chasers. this puts Milli newly at the top for a liquid savings account after my July 2023 interest rate update. We’ll see how long it lasts.

If anyone remembers FNBO Direct, that is still around at 3.75% APY. So there is a history of FNBO going trendy and grabbing some deposits with a competitive APY for a while. The term “online savings account” is now redundant. The new thing is app-only.

Reading through the various app reviews, the most common complaint seems to be getting denied for a new account after going through the whole application process and/or difficulty funding the new account. So be prepared for some account-opening hurdles.
