bankaround.com is saying between 0.1% and 0.25% depending on balance.  I have had luck negotiating a higher rate with their High Yield Checking by going to a branch; not sure if I'll have the same result when my Essential Savings promo rate expires in May.

  I think they will only accept your application if you are in the DC area. I'm a member because I signed up using the non-profit donation option, but I was living in the DC area.

Also, their website sucks and never works with Mint.

Grr!  This is exactly the same as their existing MMA, which still pays 0.95%, and they refuse to convert an existing account.  Of course they didn't even notify existing customers of the new account type/rate.

discovercard bank is .90%

Regarding: discovercard bank is .90% is cap one's 1.25% for 6 months worth the hassle?

It really depends on the amount you are going to deposit.  Think of it as 29 cents a month for every $1,000.  So $10,000 would be $2.92 a month and $100,000 be for $29.17.  For me its not worth the trouble unless you have a larger amount of money to deposit.

turtlebug said:   https://gecapitalbank.com/en.html has an online savings account which has a competitive rate of 0.90% APY for all balances (from $1 to $1 million) as of 6/21/13. There is no monthly service fee. They also have a decent ACH external transfer service. Here’s a summary of its features: micro/trial deposits used in the link setup process per CSR; outgoing transfer limit of $125,000 per online transaction per FAQ; and allows up to 4 linked accounts per CSR.

Updated QS.

** note this is not GE Capital Retail Bank, it's a different bank **

  Do you have an account with GE Capital Bank?

If yes, I have a few questions:

Soft or Hard credit pull during account opening?
How easy is to call and get more than $125K/day limit out in case of emergency?
Any issues/concerns?

Thanks

  Don't know on the credit pull, seems very easy to pull money out but will get denied if amount is greater than available balance which is only visible when attempting to transfer out of the account from the GE website. Check the avail bal, then pull from the other bank. No complaints from me!

Medikit said:   Ally Bank up to 0.95%.
  Does Ally have a good history of always being almost competitive?  Or have there been any times when their interest rates were drastically uncompetitive?  I want a bank that will always try to be near the top, even if not at the top.

  There is no bank account that will stay at the top, banks make sure of that. Take Dollar Savings from Emigrant for example, does that account have the 1.05% rate today? No, you have to get the My Savings Direct account....so if you truly want the top bank accounts get used to opening and closing bank accounts and especially within the same bank (Capital One is notorious for this as well). Each bank will have their 5 minutes in the sun and drop down to average once they have the capital they are looking for...

Barclays has an interesting option now called Dream Savings Account.
Same no min, no fees, etc of their standard 1.0% savings account however more earning potential:

1.05%

Dreams are nice – but turning them into reality is even better. And with Barclays Dream Account, you can. The Dream Account is a savings account that has all the award-winning benefits of our Online Savings Account – including an Annual Percentage Yield (APY) that’s currently 10X more than the national average, no hidden fees and no minimum balance to open. So what makes the Dream Account different? It’s specifically designed to reward you for smart savings choices, like making consecutive monthly deposits and not withdrawing funds for a period of time. So dream big, save up – and reap the rewards.
Here's how it works:

Deposit up to a maximum of $1,000 of savings each month into your account.
Every time you make consecutive deposits for six months, we’ll give you a 2.5% bonus on the total interest you earned over that time.
Make no withdrawals for six consecutive months and earn another 2.5% bonus on the past six months of interest earned.
Smart savings decisions can earn you one or both bonuses, getting you closer to your dream.

  If I'm calculating the interest correctly, it will pay 1.1025% APY in six months -- assuming no interest rate changes, and qualifying monthly deposits.

  I get the same number, but that would be assuming you only keep the account at what you start with. It appears the max you can fund the account with at start up is $1000 as well. So making the following assumptions; 1) Opening with max of $1k, 2) Funding $1k per month at the start of each month beginning on the 2nd month, 3) 1.05% APY = 1.044% APR, 4) No withdrawals and max deposit each month:
Balance Deposit Interest Bonus
$1,000.00 $0.00 $0.87 $0.00
$1,000.87 $1,000.00 $0.87 $0.00
$2,001.74 $1,000.00 $1.74 $0.00
$3,003.49 $1,000.00 $2.62 $0.00
$4,006.10 $1,000.00 $3.49 $0.00
$5,009.59 $1,000.00 $4.36 $0.70
$6,014.65 $1,000.00 $5.24 $0.00
$7,019.89 $1,000.00 $6.11 $0.00
$8,026.00 $1,000.00 $6.99 $0.00
$9,032.99 $1,000.00 $7.87 $0.00
$10,040.86 $1,000.00 $8.74 $0.00
$11,049.60 $0.00 $9.62 $2.23
$11,061.45      

You would earn a whopping $61.45 at the end of a year. I would be all over this if you can fund it with more then $1k, but otherwise it is going to take a few years to get any decent savings going, at which point you would be better off just opening a CD since you wouldn't want to make withdrawals to get the bonus.

  For many of us, our liquid funds only get withdrawn because of interest rates. If you make any withdraws, the APY drops to 1.07625%. Still decent.

Incidentally, I had a question about the bonus interest on the Barclay Dream Account. 
per the T&Cs: "Bonuses. A bonus of 2.5% will be applied to interest accrued and paid in the previous six (6) months, if six (6) consecutive monthly deposits are made to the account in the amount of $1000 or less. A bonus of of2.5% will be applied to interest accrued and paid in the previous six (6) months, if there are no withdrawals from the account in any of the previous six (6) months. Bonuses will be paid to the account at the end of the month in which the applicable conditions have been met."

If this a running six-months? Does this mean that every month, it evaluates if the previous six months had 6 consecutive monthly deposits under $1k? And similarly, it checks every month that the previous 6 months had no withdrawals? So the bonus interest is paid every month that the previous 6 months have met the conditions? So the effective interest rate approaches 1.4% over the long term? Has anyone had this account over 6 months having met the conditions?

  It is not a rolling bonus.  You get the bonus payment(s) every 6 months, that covers the previous 6 month period.

Opened capital one essential savings for 1.25% for 6 months promotion. Had to go to branch and then come back again to sign an additional document that was left in the printer and forgot to have me sign. Also she asked me how much I wanted to deposit I tell her an amount and she's like you need 250 min to deposit when it clearly says five dollar min on the website and even documents I received. Wound up getting the accoint open with the lower minimum.

1.25% seems like the best bank savings deal right now.
