# How much interest will I collect in my savings account?

So I just opened up a savings account today at a bank and I put in $320, how long will it take me to get to $1000 (if I only collect interest and don't add anymore)

So If I'm only getting 0.20% of interest they'll only be adding 64 cents? D:

You forgot to mention how much interest you'll be earning and if you have to pay any fees.

In all seriousness, I would say at least 40 years.

It depends upon the interest rate.

I assume a rate of .85% which might be a little high.

At that rate, $320 will grow into $1000 in approximately 134 years (not a typo).

At .2%, it will take approximately 456 years.

Banks are only paying like .20% so it will probably take you about 75/100 years.

Assuming you receive interest payments monthly at a rate of 0.2%, it would take 569.75 years.
