Top 6-Month CD Rates Fall To 1.40% APY

Country Bank has offered the best 6-month CD rates since January.

Of course, it was paying 1.60% APY back then. The rate was lowered to 1.50% APY in March and 1.40% APY earlier this month.

Country Bank is paying 1.40% APY on 6-month CDs now, down from 1.60% APY in January.But that’s more than enough to keep Country Bank at the top of our rankings, and with a very reasonable minimum deposit of only $500.

The only downside to investing with this 14-branch bank in central Massachusetts is that it doesn’t take online applications. You have to call (800) 322-8233 and a customer service representative will give you complete instructions on how to apply by mail.

The next best, nationally available rates on 6-month certificates of deposit are:

1.28% APY with a $1,000 minimum deposit from Aurora Bank, which is headquartered in Wilmington, Del. with a branch in Jersey City, N.J.

1.27% APY with a $1,000 minimum deposit from Nexity Bank, an online bank based in Birmingham, Ala.

1.27% APY with a $1,000 minimum deposit from ShoreBank, which has seven banking centers in the Chicago area, as well as one in Detroit and one in Cleveland.
