Apparently top High Yield Savings accounts such as Goldman , Discover, etc. are not available for non-resident aliens.
What is the best available option to save πŸ’²πŸ’²??

Regular savings account give a measly 0.0x% πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

  • I am on H1 and have a savings account in Discover. Who stops you opening one? What rule book you're referring to bud?

      +1 you just need to provide basic details like SSN. Benefits are the same for all.

      This. I am pretty sure I am not a resident alien till after 5 years of being in the US. I have been in F1 exempt status for 2 years, so that duration does not get counted for substantial presence test.

    • Buddy, read the definition of Resident Alien again. How long are you in the US?

      @OP, By the by, I have never heard anything like your visa status is a criterion for opening an online savings account! Are you sure?

  • Citi and hsbc had 2% , some other bank had 2.5% too I believe but balance had to be a large amount. Don’t forget to check the terms and conditions
