Most credit unions have membership requirements that don’t make it possible for everyone to join — and that disqualifies them from our rankings.

But Melrose has a unique open charter that allows all U.S. residents to join, regardless of where they live or work, and it only costs $1 to sign up.

Compare these returns with the best CD rates from scores of other banks in our extensive database.

    After a thorough check of the CD rates this morning, we’re glad to report that there have been no changes to The CD Rates Leaderboard for August 17.

    Those same good rates are still available.
