Cd tip
Laddering CDs are a great option for saving and earning. In a ladder, the length of the CDs vary, each rolling over to the highest rung as time expires. This keeps an array of rates earning, and a bad rate only lasts as long as its rung; it is evened out by the other CDs.
Cd tip
Use caution when deciding on CD terms and understand you won't be taking it out. A five-year CD may have a great rate, but if you have to touch it before that time is up, be prepared to pay a hefty penalty where you could sacrifice some or all of your interest.
Cd tip
Banks compete with one another by offering higher rates, but many times the highest CD rates can be found from online banks. Use Bankrate's search feature to find the highest rates on CDs.
