PNC Bank: Perfect Record Of Bad CD Rates

All of its CD rates are below average.It’s been a while since we’ve found a bank with CD rates that fall below average in every standard term.

Would that qualify as a full house? A flush?

Sorry, PNC Bank, we’ll simply call it a FAIL.

Here’s why:

3-month CD rate is 0.07% APY versus an average rate of 0.15% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 0.65% APY.)

6-month CD rate is 0.10% APY versus an average rate of 0.22% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 0.85% APY.)

12-month CD rate is 0.20% APY versus an average rate of 0.33% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 1.15% APY.)

24-month CD rate is 0.35% APY versus an average rate of 0.52% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 1.25% APY.)

36-month CD rate is 0.40% APY versus an average rate of 0.69% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 1.55% APY.)

60-month CD rate is 1.00% APY versus an average rate of 1.13% APY. (Leaderboard leader is 1.91% APY.)

Those rates all require a $1,000 minimum balance and appear to be consistent nationwide, although the website asks for a ZIP code.

PNC Bank’s current promotion is a 9-month CD that pays 0.15% APY to 0.20% APY, depending on your relationship with the bank.

Yeah, that’s a FAIL, too.

Of course, all of the offerings on our CD Rates Leaderboard are above average.
