Other High Certificate of Deposit Rates

I'm sorry to have to report on 2% CDs, but for terms under one year, I'm afraid it's very competitive in today's interest rate environment. For example, the top rate at Bankrate for a 6-month CD is 1.76% APY, and for the 3-month CD the top rate is only 1.50% APY. Refer to the following links for other top CD rates:
