Bankrate.com’s current interest rate table

Categorized as: Savings Bonds and competitive investments

This long list of bank account and CD interest rates is updated every day by Bankrate.com and is republished here with its permission.

The list is a bit of a jumble and we have to show it just like they send it, but it gives current average rates for a wide variety of bank products, including:

  • Passbook and statement savings accounts
  • Money market accounts (MMA)
  • Regular CDs with a variety of lengths from 1 month to 5 years
  • Jumbo CDs (minimum investment is usually $100,000) of various lengths

Rate means annual interest rate and APY means Annual Percentage Yield. The APY is slightly higher than the Rate because of compounding.

If you click on any of the graph tags, a new window will open showing Bankrate.com’s graphing program. Just close the window when you’re finished and you’ll find us underneath it.

Thanks for the info. I use Bankrate.com quite frequently and have found it to be a great source of financial information. Until I discovered US Savings Bonds, I was going to go the bank CD route for extra savings. But I figure why keep paying taxes on the interest every year when I can take advantage of the tax-deferred feature of savings bonds! Plus 6.73% for 6 months beats a 6 month bank CD anyday!

After six years, over 400 posts, 3,680 real comments, and over 90,000 spam comments (thank you, Akismet, for making managing a blog with comments possible), I am closing public comments on Savings-Bond-Advisor.com. I will contine to update the main articles on this site, but not the comments.

Virtually every question about Savings Bonds has been asked and answered on this site multiple times. Use the search feature (see the box in the gray area near the top of this page) or the detailed menu on the lower part of the home page to find the information you're looking for. If you have a copy of Savings Bond Advisor, you can ask me a question here.
