1.85% Leads 3-Month CD Rates In August

TotalBank tops our survey of the best 3-month CD rates for the second straight month.

The Miami-based bank is offering less than the eye-catching 2.25% APY it was paying in July, with a $1,000 minimum deposit.

TotalBank in Miami tops our rankings of banks offering the best 3-month CD rates for a second straight month.That deal was short-lived, dropping to 1.85% APY just days after it was posted.

But TotalBank has maintained that rate ever since and it’s still significantly higher than all other nationally available 3-month CD rates.

It’s also more than three times the average rate for 3-month certificates of deposit, which fell to a record low 0.49% APY last week.

The next-best banks in our August rankings have changed, but the rates they’re offering are very close to those in our July rankings:

1.55% APY with a $1,000 minimum from Beal Bank Nevada, which has a single office in Las Vegas.

1.55% APY with an $8,000 minimum from UFB Direct. CDs sold at UFBDirect actually come from Waterfield Bank, which has a couple of full-service offices in Carmel, Ind., and Germantown, Md.

These are all Internet specials and accounts must be opened online to qualify for these rates.
