Detroit-Area Deal: CD Rates Up To 2.25%

Tandem Federal Credit Union offers deals on 24-, 36-, and 60-month CDsTandem Federal Credit Union has top CD rates for its metro Detroit members.

With a $2,000 minimum deposit, it’s paying:

  • 1.40% APY for 24-month CDs.
  • 2.00% APY for 36-month CDs.
  • 2.25% APY for 60-month CDs.

While all beat the top nationally available CD rates for their terms on our CD Rates Leaderboard, the 36-month CD rate does so by more than a third of a percentage point.

We should also note: It’s been about a month since we’ve found a 3-year CD that pays as much as 2%.

And one more thing: On its website, Tandem says its 36- and 60-month CD rates are good through Jan. 31, 2012.
