Kansas CD (certificate of deposit) rates: Top 3

August 6, 2009 1 Comment »

Below are the best CD rates available to residents in the state of Kansas. These come in the form of 3 month CDs, 15 month CDs, and 20 month CDs. The reason their maturities are not on the traditional 6 month increments is because they are promotional savings products. Generally when a bank or credit union offer a promotional CD rate it will be accompanied with an odd maturity.

The local CD rates available in Kansas are significantly higher than the rates you would find nationally available for the same maturities. A couple weeks ago we attempted to settle the debate of choosing between local CD rates vs. national CD rates but it ended rather inconclusively. The bottom line is that it varies from state to state.

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.

    I am currently employed by BANK VI and was checking the internet for comparable CD rates to ours. This website has not been updated in quite a while since we no longer offer the Double Jump CD’s and the Sparkler Special. The rates have changed also from what is listed on this site. It would be much appreciated if you would correct this since we are having calls regarding the findings on this website. Thank you for your help.
