The yield on 10-year Treasuries has risen from 1.66% to 2.16% since the first of May.
Unfortunately, certificates of deposit have not followed suit.
The past five weeks have been particularly difficult ones for savers looking for higher CD rates.
Ten of the top deals on our list of highest CD rates were cut over the past week alone.
Three deals from credit unions fell off the list completely after:
- HeritageWest Credit Union cut its 60-month rate from 2.02% APY to 1.36% APY.
- Space City Credit Union cut its 36-month rate from 1.51% APY to 1.01% APY.
- Dupaco Community Credit Union cut its 35-month rate from 1.51% APY to 1.41% APY.
A bunch of offers on 60-month CDs were reduced:
- Mountain America Credit Union went from 2.00% APY to 1.85 APY.
- Security First Credit Union went from 2.33% APY with a $1,000 to $5,000 minimum deposit to just 1.97% APY; bigger 5-year CDs went from 2.43% APY to 2.07% APY.
- Space City Credit Union went from 2.02% APY to 1.76 APY.
- Dupaco Community Credit Union went from 2.01% APY to 1.91% APY.
- Arizona Federal Credit Union went from 2.00% APY to 1.75% APY.
- F&A Credit Union went from 1.92% APY to 1.76% APY.
- GPO Federal Credit Union went from 1.85 to 1.75.
There were only two additions.
- HomeBanc’s 4-month special for Florida savers pays 1.30% APY with a $10,000 minimum deposit.
- Stanford Federal Credit Union’s 60-month CD now pays 2.01% APY with a $100,000 minimum deposit; 1.96% APY with a $50,000 deposit; 1.91% APY with a $25,000 deposit; and 1.86% APY with at least a $1,000 deposit./li>
