Invest, Borrow, Spend—and now Save. Early next year, M1 will offer a high-yield savings account where M1 Plus members earn 4.50% APY1 on their cash. The M1 High-Yield Savings Account will be an FDIC-insured account offered by a partner bank2. You can learn more and sign up to stay informed on developments.
  
At M1, we believe the best way to build and manage wealth is by thinking long-term and consistently practicing smart financial habits. To make this easier for you, we aim to build best-in-class products across each financial need. With products that work seamlessly together, your potential benefit increases the more you engage. By announcing a savings account with the highest interest rate on the market— a designation we hope to maintain even as rates fluctuate— we’re taking another step toward being the best place to save money.  
  
With M1,   

  • If you save, your money will earn a market-leading interest rate;   
  • If you spend using our credit card3, you will earn rich cash back rewards—between 2.5-10% at over 70 of the most popular retailers and brands and 1.5% on everything else;
  • If you invest, all your deposits will go to work in a diversified portfolio of your choosing for free, and  
  • If you borrow, you will get low rates and flexible terms.  

M1 lets you maximize your money no matter how you prefer to go about it. 
 
Internally, we talk about this strategy as digitizing the private bank. The ultra-wealthy get holistic and personalized financial services with access to the best rates. To date, that kind of access requires tens or hundreds of millions in personal wealth. By digitizing the experience, we aim to give nearly all the same benefits to anyone with wealth in the tens or hundreds of thousands—all at a fraction of the cost. 
 
We hope you’re as excited to use the M1 High-Yield Savings Account as we are to launch it. If so, sign up to stay informed as we roll out access.  
 
If you don’t already use M1, please come check out the platform and the other products we offer. Our goal is to make it easier to reach your goals.
