Information on BB&T Savings Account Interest Rates:

BB&T like other banks across the country take into account a number of factors when determing the rates they set for their deposit accounts.  BB&t savings accounts are offered as a part of broad range of deposit instruments provided by banks that are interest bearing products like CDs and money market accounts. The rates set by the Federal Reserve have a significant infuence as well as funding costs and liquidity requirements, regulations and competition for deposits.

For a bank, net interest margin is an important element in determining whether a bank is profitable as it is the difference between the interest of loans and investments with interest paid on deposits. A reduced rate compared to competition could be because a bank may decide to reduce its costs by deliberately not pursuing expensive CDs and not compete with other banks for deposits and focus on noninterest bearing types of deposits.
