Virginia Raike

There’s really no reason to hold back. Experience all the upside of a high yield cash account that allows you to save and earn at high yield rates while staying out of the market*. What’s more, with Tellus you’re paid interest daily, with no fees and no lock-ups.

Limited time offer:
Earn up to 4.50% APY plus a $50, $100, or $150 cash reward.

Our high yield cash accounts were created to make saving money and earning income accessible to everyone. The Reserve Account delivers 75x more interest than your savings account** and is backed by durable, US-based real estate.

A $2,500 deposit in a Reserve Account earns you a daily 4.50% APY with no lock-up. More to save? Put more money to work in a Tellus Boost account and earn between 3.00-6.00% APY with no cap and daily rewards. It’s all up-side with interest paid daily, and, for a limited time, a higher cash bonus for a larger deposit.

Here’s the lowdown on how to earn that extra cash on us:

  2. Open and fund your account in 3 minutes (really, it’s that fast).
    Use one of the promo codes and reach the balance goal within 14 days of sign-up.

Nitty gritty detail (most won’t be concerned with):

What is Tellus?

Tellus is on a mission to make high yield accessible to everyone by harnessing the power of real estate.

You don’t need to be an investor to earn a high yield on your idle cash.

Tellus’ simple cash account products harness the power of real estate to deliver exceptional income without requiring you to be in the market*.

What’s more, Tellus pays you daily–– not monthly or quarterly, which means that the interest you receive today earns interest tomorrow.

✅  No fees
✅  No lockup period
✅  No crypto or stock exposure
✅  No credit check to open

How does Tellus work?

Experience high yield that’s as liquid as cash. Powered and backed by real estate–– not stocks or crypto.

Tellus is not an investment. We don’t rely on the market to deliver yield. We earn our money by providing  mortgages to single family real estate borrowers. These mortgages are typically 6-18 month loans and are always fully collateralized.

Tellus holds these loans on our balance sheet, and they generate a predictable stream of income for us. Tellus delights our members by giving them a variety of rewards, including top of market interest payments. Those interest payments arrive daily into Tellus’ member accounts.

It's really that simple.

* “the market” refers to the stock market. Tellus does not invest in the stock market, crypto or any other similar security.

**Savings account interest comparison based on national average APY for US Savings Accounts effective as of April 6, 2021.
