The average one-year CD fell one basis point in our most recent rates survey to 0.28 percent -- a basis point is one-hundredth of a percentage point. That's not great news if you're looking to purchase a certificate of deposit. Fortunately, there are still some institutions paying much better-than-average rates. Use our research to find the best CD rates in Galveston, TX.

Insured up to $250,000 per depositor, CDs are a safe bet. Just keep in mind that they aren't the most liquid accounts. In fact, most institutions will hit you with a stiff penalty for withdrawing your money before the maturity date. Use our research to find CD rates in Galveston, TX, and in other areas of Texas.
