Columbus First Bank Offers Top 5-Year CDs

This Ohio bank requires a $500 minimum deposit.Columbus, Ohio-area residents can take advantage of 60-month CD rates that beat the top nationally available deal by more than a tenth of a percentage point.

With a $500 minimum deposit, Columbus First Bank pays 2.10% APY on its 5-year CD.

That beats the 1.95% APY offered by KeySource Commercial Bank, which sits atop our CD Rates Leaderboard. You’ll have to deposit at least $5,000 to purchase that certificate of deposit.

Columbus First also offers competitive 48-month CD rates. It pays 1.75% APY.

The other CD rates this bank offers aren’t nearly as competitive, which is disappointing because Columbus First offered a top 36-month deal last fall.

While you don’t have to be an Ohio resident to purchase these certificates of deposit, you do need to visit Columbus First Bank ( in person.

It has a single office, at 6877 North High St. in the Columbus suburb of Worthington.
