Top CD Rates - Survey of Best CD Rates by Term

The top rate for a certificate of deposit (CD) this week is at Pentagon Federal Credit Union (fondly known as PenFed CU) where you can get a 7-year certificate that currently pays 4.00% APY.

For shorter terms, UmbrellaBank.com has a 1-year CD with a 2.15% annual percentage rate.

Last month (8/6/09), NewDominionDIRECT had the best 1-year CD rate at 2.05%

The one year US Treasury rate is currently 0.40%, down 7 basis points from 0.47% last month.

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.
