CD Rates At Regions All Below Average

It's 58-month CD pays just 1.01% APY.It’s been more than a year since I reviewed CD rates at Regions.

My, how things have changed.

In April 2011, Regions’ best offerings were its promotional relationship rates, and it had multiple deals ranging from 1.25% APY for 14-month CDs to 2.10% APY for 54-month CDs.

You won’t find any rates anywhere near that good now.

I checked major cities in the 16 states across the South and Midwest where Regions has offices, and the bank is now offering only one odd-term deal across the board, a 58-month CD paying 1.01% APY.

And that’s with a $10,000 minimum deposit and a checking account.

I also found no variance in the regular relationship rates, which require a $500 minimum deposit and a checking account.

They’re low, too. Like not a single rate above the average annual yields large banks and thrifts are offering low.

3-month CD rate is 0.03% APY versus an average rate of 0.15% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 0.65% APY.)

6-month CD rate is 0.05% APY versus an average rate of 0.21% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 0.81% APY.)

12-month CD rate is 0.10% APY versus an average rate of 0.32% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 1.15% APY.)

24-month CD rate is 0.20% APY versus an average rate of 0.51% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 1.25% APY.)

36-month CD rate is 0.30% APY versus an average rate of 0.68% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 1.55% APY.)

60-month CD rate is 0.60% APY versus an average rate of 1.11% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 1.91% APY.)
