Money

  • E-Loan – great rates on Mortgage, Home Equity, and Car Loans. Also, a fantastic APY of 5.5% on savings accounts ($5000, minimum), which is the highest in the industry (as of Dec 2006). I only get some lurve if you get a loan from them, but if surety and liquidity are important to you financially, you really can’t beat stowing some money in an E-Loan savings account.
  • PayPal Merchant Services – useful for most everything if you are conducting any type of business on the internet. Necessary for eBay users. I only get lurve for their Merchant Services stuff, but their checking account is currently giving 5.03% APY.
