CD Rates Leaderboard For August 9, 2011:
Quaint Oak Falls Back Towards The Pack

This is a great page to bookmark so you can always find the best nationally available deals on the most popular CD rates.Yesterday I thought we might see a change among the banks offering the best nationally available 36-month CD rates.

And sure enough we have. Just not the change I expected.

I wondered how long MainStreet Bank, through its website, could hold out as the last bank paying 2.00% APY.

But the CD Rates Leaderboard is updated, all of the top nationally available deals are there, and MainStreet is holding firm.

It was Quaint Oak Bank ( that reduced its interest rate from 1.80% APY to 1.70% APY today.

(The small bank with a single branch in suburban Philadelphia, which has been treating savers very well since it broke into our rankings in early April, also reduced its return on 24- and 60-month CDs.)

That leaves Doral Bank Direct (, the online operation of the leading community bank in Puerto Rico, as the only bank offering the next-best interest rate of 1.80% APY.

Now I think it’s likely that MainStreet and Doral Direct will fall back towards the eight banks offering between 1.76% and 1.74% APY on 36-month CDs.

Come back later today and we’ll tell you about an Indiana credit union that’s offering its members 2.10% APY on 3-year CDs and 3.00% APY on 5-year CDs.

No bank has offered a national deal like that on 60-month certificates of deposit anytime this year.

That’s why we think local deals rock.
