Select CD Rates Review

Looking for a good (does it still exist?) certificate of deposit rates? I believe I have found the best place to do some rate shopping! Going through the website, I was able to find very interesting economic information along with the best CD rates in several States (they service 20 States including California, Texas, Florida and New York).

What is Select CD Rates?

Select CD Rates is more than a simple CD rate shopping site. This is the shopping place for money market funds and bank savings accounts as well! There is a very easy layout to surf and it assists you in finding the best CD rate in your State. Along with those resources, they enable you to search CD rates offered by major banks such as JP Morgan and Bank of America.

What makes you want to visit this site?

If you have a few dollars to put in a safe place, you probably want the best rate possible. Select CD rates is a great place to start, why go anywhere else. You will find out about the best CD rate in Texas with a few clicks. You can also look at money market funds (which are liquid and easy to withdraw from) or a bank savings account for your emergency funds. Since this money may be sitting there for a while, you are better off finding  a decent rate with availability to access the cash at any time.

Are the resources really helpful?

The most interesting point of this site is that the CD RATES INFORMATION IS FREE! Therefore, you don’t have to register, give up your email address or pay to get the information. In the comfort of your home, you are able to find what you need.

There is also an FAQ section and the Glossary where much personal finance information can be found. Sometimes, financial terms can be hard to understand so it was a great idea to provide definitions for most of them. In the FAQ, you will also be able to find out applicable penalties on withdrawing money from your CD before maturity dates or what is a Certificate of Deposit Ladder (definitely the best investment strategy if you are looking for 100% secured investments).

Finally, they even offer a tips section (still free) where you can get a few tricks on how to manage your liquidity and bank account. You will find updated and relevant information throughout the site.

Can improvements be done?

I was pretty surprised to find all the information I was looking for while surfing from one page to another and I would say that there is not much improvement required. The site is filled with relevant and easy to find information about all kinds of secured investments.

I recommend Select CD rates if you are looking for the best CD rates in the state without having to leave home ;-)

    I cannot believe you are giving Select CD Rates a good review! Yesterday they had 4 year CD rates for Chase Bank for 3% with a $10K minimum etc. I called the Chase phone number listed and they have nothing near that rate! I have informed Chase of the website and they will try to stop what Select CD Rates is doing with their incorrect information. They show the date as being this date so they can’t say those are old rates. It makes me furious to waste my time researching such a site which is so undependable and doesn’t even give one a “contact” number or email addy to contact them. What a waste of time!

    Select CD Rates is advertising incorrect rates. I have e-mailed (the only way to contact them) 8 times to have them take off the bank that I work at. They are advertising incorrect rates and we did not authorize them to advertise our rates.
