Best CD Rates in Houston, Texas: Top 3

Below are the highest yielding CD (certificate of deposit) rates available to the residents of Houston, Texas. They come in the form of 6 month CDs, 12 month CDs and 60 month CDs.

After sorting through dozens of rate pages by local community banks and credit unions serving the city of Houston and the surrounding areas, we found that you’ll most likely be able to find better rates with local institutions rather than online banks with nationwide acceptance.

The reason we say “likely” rather than certainly is because the top rates from this particular region are from community and employment based credit unions rather than banks. Give them a call or review the eligibility requirements on their website to see if you can join.

How did we compile this list? As you are probably aware, higher CD rates tend to accompany longer maturities and since we did not want to strictly list long maturity CD’s we decided to list the deposit rates which beat the national average by the highest margins. The table directly below shows local deposit rates only. Scroll further down to compare them with nationally available certificates of deposit.
