Looking for the best fixed deposits in August 2020 in Singapore? There is no National Day fixed deposit promotion this year. This is unlike previous years whereby banks offered a one time higher interest rate if you do a placement before National Day.
The 1 year interest rate for September 2020 Singapore Savings Bonds has fallen as low as 0.24%, thus any of the fixed deposits promotion below will beat the Singapore Savings Bonds.
I have shared many other financial instruments that is similar to what fixed deposits can offer. One good alternative is buying a short term endowment plan. Endowment plans guarantee your capital upon maturity which is similar to what fixed deposits offer. Most of the short term endowment plans are on limited tranche basis.

In July, I have signed up for a Dash EasyEarn, which is an insurance savings plan that offers you 2.0% p.a. for the first year up to S$20,000. The estimated interest rate p.a. is 1.5% thereafter.
