PNC offers a large selection of CD terms, but they pay low yields. You can find higher rates at many online banks. For example, Limelight Bank and Ally Bank offer much higher payouts on their one-year CDs.

Be sure to compare CD rates at several banks before deciding where to put your money to help you lock in the highest returns and meet your financial goals faster. Minimum deposit requirements vary from bank to bank, so review the account agreement to avoid any unwanted penalties or fees.
