Earn 1.7% With The Best Savings Account

You can earn far more from a top-paying savings account than you can from most short-term CDs.

The average return on 12-month certificates of deposit has fallen to a measly 0.77% APY, and the average return on 24-month CDs has plunged to 1.19% APY.

But Colorado Federal Savings Bank is paying 1.70% APY on its savings account and we’ve found four others paying at least 1.50% APY.

The downside of savings accounts is that their rates are always variable, so they can drop at any time.

But there’s no long-term commitment, so if you become disenchanted with your rate, you can always withdraw your money and move on.

    Beware that some banks have policies on supposed liquid accounts – charging a fee if the account is closed before a certain date, forfeiting the entire month’s interest unless the account is closed at the end of month. Some don’t tell customers up front
