According to Bankrate, BankDirect has the highest 3 Month CD rate at 1.01%. This puts the 3 Month certificates of deposit back above the 1% line.
BankDirect is the online division of Texas Capital Bank and has branches in all of the major cities in Texas. The 1.01% APY is available for deposits of at least $10,000.
Lately it hasn’t been a trend for banks to increase their interest rates, especially with Bank of America and Chase cutting their rates across the board.
The increased rate of 1.01% pulls Goldwater Bank, from Scottsdale, Arizona down to the number 2 spot with a rate of 0.85% APY and the same minimum deposit of $10,000.
