The only major change to the CD rates board for the start of this week is the new leader on the 3 Month rate. Sanibel Captiva Community Bank from Fla., is now offering their 3-month CDs at 0.95%. The previous leader was Nexity Bank who recently dropped their 3 month CD from 0.86% APY down to 0.75% APY.
iGObanking still offers the best 24 month rate and Melrose Credit Union basically takes up the rest of the top spots. Melrose consistently holds the top rates for not only the 12 month CDs but also the 36 month and 60 month terms.
Bankaholic recently sat down with the people at Melrose Credit Union and asked them why they are able to offer such high CD rates, view their responses here. It’s encouraging to see a Credit Union that is actually working for the people and giving back the money made in lower loan rates and higher savings rates. With their current business plan and how they invest their customer’s money, I believe they will hoard the top spots of most of the CDs for a long time to come.

Melrose has an open membership, so that anyone anywhere can join after paying a $1 fee and holding $25 in a savings account.

Once you become a member you will have access to the best CD rates available nationally.
