Throw it into an S&P500 ETF if you want some risk. Put it in a Discover or Ally high yield savings acct (2.00-2.25% + signup bonus) or a 3-4 yr CD for risk free return.

Consider getting a savings account with Discover, Capital One, or Marcus by Goldman Sachs. They offer interest rates between 2-2.25%. Much higher than BoA or Chase
