5.46% 8-Month Special Branch CD at World Savings


World Savings made a slight increase in the CD rate of its branch special. The special is now an 8-month CD with a yield of 5.46% APY. The previous one had an APY of 5.41% and a 7-month term. As is typical at World, the minimum deposit is $10,000. It does not require money new to World Savings. Note, some states may have lower rates and different terms. In Florida the branch special is still 5.41% APY with a 6-month term.

This 8-month CD special also shows up in the internet rates page (if you are located in the right state). It looks like you can apply for it online.

World's internet special is still at 5.41% APY, but it now has a term of 5 months rather than 6 months.

These latest specials are not too exciting if you compare them to the secret CDs that World use to offer in the good ol' days, but at least they're still competitive.

World Savings and its parent, Golden West Financial, are undergoing a merger with Wachovia. Currently, World Savings is FDIC insured.
