July 23, 2009 No Comments »

Below are the top 3 CD rates offered to residents in the state of Missouri. After researching a few dozen local and regional credit unions and banks serving the state, we compiled a list of the top 3. These rates are time-sensitive in nature, therefor you must take the date of this article into consideration.

Compare today’s top CD rate offers in Missouri and nationwide.

Some of the institutions in which we have listed below which are offering the highest rates may have strict eligibility requirements. If you do not live in Missouri, it may be difficult to advantage of these savings products. Even if you do reside in Missouri, you may still want to visit the institution’s membership eligibility page to see if you are eligible (esp. credit unions).

When forming this list, we realize that the highest deposit yields will be accompanied with the longest maturities, therefor we took the CD rates which are beating the national average by the highest margins so that we would not be strictly listing long term deposit certificates.
