The CD Rates Leaderboard For August 20

The week began with the best nationally available rates on 3-month to 5-year CDs remaining steady and that’s the way it’s ending.

Although there were several rate cuts made this week, the top rates stood firm.

To check the complete rankings for any of these certificates of deposit, just click on the term you’re interested in.

3-month CD: 1.35% APY from iGObanking with a $500 minimum deposit.

6-month CD: 1.25% APY from NewDominion Bank with a $3,000 minimum deposit.

12-month CD: 1.76% APY from Melrose Credit Union with a minimum deposit of $5,000.

24-month CD: 2.02% APY from Melrose Credit Union with a minimum deposit of $5,000.

36-month CD: 2.52% APY from Melrose Credit Union with a $5,000 minimum deposit.

60-month CD:
3.29% APY from Melrose Credit Union with a $5,000 minimum deposit.

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.

    I called Melrose on their 5yr. CD and they told me the early withdrawal penalty was 6mo. interest and the interest rate of any money earned was reduced to 1%. What is up with that?

    Oh, and besides the $1 membership fee, you had to open a savings account for $25.
