I have an online savings account with about $4000 in it.
This is my rainy day slash emergency money. It is put aside basically incase my car craps itself and I need a replacement, in case I need to pay for damages that may occur to other peoples car, property or if I need some costly medical bills or what ever.
I've got it in an online savings account at Rabodirect in New Zealand (I live in NZ)
It's earning 4% interest and is on call.
Should I keep it in an on call account, in laddered term deposits of $1000 maturing every month or so or put the whole lot in term deposits and break it if need be?
Just feels like wasted money losing to inflation.
Oh and I have 3rd party car insurance, basic flatting insurance and basic medical cover (specialist and operations)
