CD rate with a 4% APY through Alliant Credit Union

February 19, 2009 No Comments »

We have officially hit the point in our recession where a 48 month term certificate of deposit yielding a 4.00% APY is actually competitive. With the Down down to 7500, a growing unemployment rate, failing banks (already 9 in 2009) and fears of inflation, you get a fairly stagnant savings rate – which most consumers simply hope stays above the rate of inflation.

Currently Alliant Credit Union of Illinois, has some of the highest CD rates currently available if you are willing to commit your savings to longer maturities.
