Seattle-based Washington Federal has 60-month CD rates that certainly aren’t typical for a big bank.
It’s paying 2.25% APY with a $1,000 minimum deposit or $500 for minors.
That’s nearly a third of a percentage point better than the best nationally available 60-month CD rates on our CD Rates Leaderboard.
Both KeySource Commercial Bank and Tennessee Commerce are offering that 1.95% APY with minimum deposits of $5,000 and $2,500, respectively.
You have to live in one of the eight Western states where Washington Federal has branches to buy these certificates of deposit and do so in person.
Its 160 branches are located in the states of Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.
