Best CD & Savings Rates Survey

The top rates for CDs this week are at Pentagon Federal Credit Union (fondly known as PenFed CU) for 5 and 7-year certificates of deposit that currently pay 4.39% APY.

For shorter term, Flagstar Bank, has a 1-year CD with a 3.25% annual percentage rate.

For online savings, GMAC Bank is paying 3.00% on any deposit over $500.

With rates so low, banks will try to sell you their annuity products. Make sure you read our article: Beware of Annuities

The table below shows the best CD rates for other terms. If that table is hard to read, then try Very Best CD Rates.
