Update: March 15, 2023: Rate is now 4.35% APY on the Bask Interest Savings Account and 2 miles per dollar in the Bask Mileage Savings Account.

As interest rates go up, Bask Bank has been very competitive with their Bask Interest Savings account. Their rates have consistently been among the highest at any bank, online or otherwise. The current rate is noted above.

They don’t update the Bask Mileage Savings “interest rate” as often, I would assume because round numbers are much simpler for calculating mileage earnings!

But I’m happy to see that Bask has raised the rate on their Bask Mileage Savings once again to 2 miles per dollar. That means that $100,000 on deposit for a year would earn you 200,000 miles (which, remember would only be taxed at a value of 0.42 cents per mile, so the calculation vs. straight cash changes since cash interest is fully taxable).

Once again, this makes it harder to choose which to earn!

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at the South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
