CD Rates Leaderboard For September 13

Two of our top CD rates have now fallen this month.

NewDominion Bank remains the leader in 6-month certificates of deposit even though it lowered its rate from 1.25% APY to 1.20% APY.

Tristate Capital Direct, which was also paying 1.25% APY at the end of last week, slashed its return to 0.50% and dropped out of contention. Waaaaaay out of contention.

So the best nationally available returns are now:

3-Month CDs iGoBanking 1.35% APY $500
6-Month CDs NewDominion Bank 1.20% APY $3,000
12-Month CDs Sallie Mae Bank 1.55% APY None
24-Month CDs NewDominion Bank 1.85% APY $3,000
36-Month CDs Danversbank 2.50% APY $500
60-Month CDs Melrose Credit Union 3.03% APY $5,000

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

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

(We include Melrose in our rankings because it has a unique charter that allows anyone to join, regardless of where they live or work.

NewDominion reduced it’s chart-topping rate on 24-month CDs from 1.95% APY to 1.85% APY last week.
