CD Rates Leaderboard For October 5

The Leaderboard is back to where it was at the start of the month.

BankDirect’s brief fling at the top of our rankings of the best 3-month CD rates is over.

Melrose Credit Union in New York continues to offer half of the best nationally available returns that we track.

3-Month CDs Goldwater Bank 0.85% APY $10,000
6-Month CDs Aurora Bank 1.16% APY $1,000
12-Month CDs Melrose Credit Union 1.51% APY $5,000
24-Month CDs Bank of Internet 1.79% APY $1,000
36-Month CDs Melrose Credit Union 2.27% APY $5,000
60-Month CD Melrose Credit Union 3.03% APY $5,000

All of these banks accept online applications for certificates of deposit from customers in all 50 states.

We include Melrose in our rankings because it has a unique charter that allows anyone to join for only $1, regardless of where they live or work. You will also be required to hold at least $25 in a savings account.

Compare these returns with the best CD rates from scores of other banks in our database.
