iGObanking boosts CD rates, offers top 36-, 60-month CDs

Yields sign with arrow pointing up and dollar sign

iGObanking has raised its CD rates by more than a percentage point on a couple of terms -- giving it the best nationally available 36- and 60-month certificates of deposit.

With a minimum deposit of $1,000, the online division of Flushing Savings Bank in New York pays 2.25% APY on 60-month certificates and 1.70% APY on 36-month certificates.

Those rates edge out Quaint Oak Bank for the top 60-month deal and Doral Bank Direct for the top 36-month deal.

Quaint Oak Bank, a suburban Philadelphia bank with a single location, pays 2.20% APY with a $500 minimum deposit for 5-year certificates.

Doral Bank Direct, the online bank of Doral Bank, the leading community bank in Puerto Rico, pays 1.65% APY with a $1,000 minimum deposit for 3-year CDs.

iGObanking has a history of boosting its rates significantly and then just as swiftly cutting them again.

So act fast.

Just last week, iGObanking offered 60-month CDs for only 1.20% APY and 36-month CDs for 0.64% APY.

Those lows came only months after it had competitive 60-month rates. Beginning in late August, the bank repeatedly slashed its returns.

iGObanking also hiked its 24-month rates by just under a full percentage point to 1.25% APY.

That's not quite good enough to top the national leader in that term: 1.31% APY offered by Goldwater Bank.
