Best CD rates in Mississippi (Top 3)

August 4, 2009 No Comments »

Below are the highest yielding CD rates available to the residents of Mississippi. The financial institutions offering these rates are local to this state but may also cover a larger regional area. If you reside in one of Mississippi’s bordering states you may also be eligible to take advantage of the savings products below, but you will need to contact a representative.

Some of the products listed below may be promotional and therefor only available for a limited time. These promotional deposit rates generally come with odd maturities (outside of the standard 6 month increments).

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.

To see how these rates stack up against national ones, compare CD rates nationwide.
