Fortunately, some local financial institutions provide deposit account rates that are 11 to 17 times the local average.

"The disparity between average local interest rates and the best rates in Chicago is huge, underscoring how crucial it is for savers in the city to choose the best local product," said Casey Bond, editor for GOBankingRates. "The difference in earnings can be substantial."

The highest deposit rate in Chicago comes from Great Lakes Credit Union, which earns savers 3.00% APY on their Ultimate Checking account.

"Our goal is to encourage our members to use GLCU as their primary financial institution," said John Skul, AVP of Marketing for Great Lakes Credit Union. "Offering them a fantastic rate is a win-win for both GLCU and our members – they receive a great interest rate on their checking account and we benefit when they meet the criteria to receive the great rate."

The next highest rate in Chicago is 2.01% APY, offered by Standard Bank & Trust Company's My Green Checking account, followed by a 2.00% APY from Baxter Credit Union's Power Interest Checking account.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE).
