What APY does SunTrust Bank offer?

Suntrust savings account offers an APY of 0.01% (APY stands for annual percentage yield, rates may change).

The interest rate on a savings account or checking account can change based, in part, on what the Federal Reserve does. Note that the APY of a savings account is the amount of interest you will earn if you keep your money in the account for a full year expressed as a percentage. The difference between an APY and an interest rate is that the APY takes into account how often your money earns interest (or compounds). The more often your money compounds, the more it will earn.
