CIT is not a BBB member, neither is Chase...and Chase has an F rating as well! Smart in many cases since they choose not to pay fees to the BBB. And only 4 complaints against CIT in 3 years is really nothing to be concerned about IMO.

They're offering a higher rate probably because they've already adjusted to the Fed's rate increase from a few weeks ago. Other banks will follow shortly as well. If you already have your money in a high-yield savings account that earns 2%+, wait a month or two. No reason to switch to this.

Great thing about it is the fact it is a savings account so it's FDIC insured up to 250k per person.

Citi Bank is a well known bank worldwide. CIT is well known in California. However, as long as the account is FDIC insured then it doesn't matter if the bank only has one employee in a one room office next to a homeless shelter, you're still safe.

Got a question, if I already have a savings account with CIT bank but only getting 1.05%, how can I get them to give me the higher rate?

It's publicly traded under ticker CIT - ~$4b market cap and ~$2b revenue. While far from the biggest it's somewhat known.
