The closest thing to a CD with regular automatic deposits is an installment savings account. These are not nearly as widespread as CDs. I described one popular installment savings account that's available at Wilshire State Bank in this November 2011 blog post.
Yeah I have few of those, but it's totally different because the Koren installment savings accounts are for fixed dollar amounts deposited on specific dates...I'm looking for something I can accumulate irregular amounts on irregular dates such as rent checks, dividends, etc but without the liquidity of a savings account. It's easy to get what I want by manually opening certificates, but not worth the hassle.
However, after looking at your "installment savings" rate list I realized that the "Club Savings
" accounts offered by most credit unions is almost what I'm looking for...only problem is disbursements are usualy fixed for June or October of every year whereas I'd either want to pick the disbursement date (ie "all deposits disbursed on 01/2015") or have each deposit be distributed after a fixed amount of time just like an automatic CD (ie "09/01/2011 deposit gets disbursed on 09/01/2016, 09/18/2011 deposit gets disbursed on 09/18/2016, etc, etc").
