ING Direct - Savings Maximiser rate is going up - and up

Great News!

Savings Maximiser's standard variable rate is increased from 6.90% p.a. to 7.00% p.a. effective 23 June 2008.

Plus the promotional interest rate from 7.90% p.a. to 8.00% p.a. effective 23 June 2008, which you can earn on any eligible deposits you make up until 30 September 2008. This is better than term deposits offered by major banks.

Inflation

The inflation hit Australia! Fuel price is increased greatly. Rice price was doubled in the past month. I think it's time to track where we can find the best bargain around the town, Melbourne.

Rice: I think the Jasmine Rice (I love Coles) is the best value. Its current price is $17 for 10 kg. The taste is among the greatest; much better than the long grain rice.

I will start posting best value essential food when I find one.
