Ally Bank's 5-Year CD Yield Falls To 2.95%

Friday, June 11, 2010 - 8:54 AMAlly Bank - Details
Ally Bank's 60-month CD rate fell from 2.99% to 2.95% APY.

I don't usually highlight a small CD rate change, but this 5-year CD from Ally Bank is special since it has only a 60-day early withdrawal penalty which makes this a great deal. News of this deal is getting out. Last week the NYT's Bucks blog mentioned it, so I wouldn't be surprised to see more rate cuts like this recent one.

That's incredible!  If you break the CD in 1 year, you're still getting 2.46%. Break after 2 years and you still net 2.70%.  Plus, the 60-day penalty is tax deductible.  Anyone thinking of a CD in the 1-2.5 year range should jump on this deal.

Yes, this is a great deal especially for those who want shorter terms. I've updated the "quick summary" section with links to my previous posts on Ally CDs and this very favorable early withdrawal penalty.
