Thanks to Michael for emailing me this special.

Best 9-Month CD's

A few months ago, I wouldn't have noted a 5.57% CD. However, rates have fallen. Currently, the best 9-month CD listed at Bankrate.com is 5.51% APY at AmTrustDirect. For those in Maricopa County and parts of Pinal County, Arizona, also note that TruWest Credit Union has a 5.75% CD special with terms of 7 months, 9 months and 11 months (see post).

thanks for the tip about the Truwest CD. Did the CSR provide any indication about how long they were planning on offering the CD. Much like you, I have a World Savings CD maturing soon and have wondered if they were going to start offering some specials again. I'll be sure to let you know if I hear anything. . .

They're saying the TruWest promo will last through the end of December.
