CD Bank lists several details about its CDs in the FAQ section and in the Truth in Savings Disclosure including,

How do I fund my CD Bank CD?

    The easiest way to fund your account is to transfer funds electronically from another bank account. We also offer options for check or wire transfers. Our online account opening processes will walk your through those steps.

Not surprisingly, there is no information on CD Bank’s website about accessing maturing funds, with the exception of,

Final Maturity – If your account is not renewed,
the funds in the account will be paid directly to you.

CSR confirmed there are still only two options for receiving “final maturity” funds:

  • Cashier’s check
  • Wire transfer out ($15 fee)

Outgoing ACHs are not available. CSR did mention that the limit on incoming ACHs is $450k, which is nice, but I'd rather have an outgoing ACH option.


Headquartered in Dallas, CD Bank (an internet division of Dallas-based TBK Bank, SSB) offers its services and product line to all U.S. citizens and resident aliens, 18 years or older, with a valid Social Security number.

The “Open Your Account” button (located on all of the pages of CD Bank’s website) leads to the online application. Funding a new CD can be done through electronic transfer from another bank account, by wire transfer, or by check.

Note: The first page of the online application states that, besides needing the usual personal identification to complete the application, you will also need,

A printer. At the end of this application we will ask
that you print documents to sign and return to us.

CD Bank has to offer 21st century services! No ACH out upon maturity, well they won’t get my deposits. I’m sure by August there will be more banks offering 3.00% 24 month CD’s.

Oh man you can ACH in but not out!?! I would just pay the $15 for the wire in this case but that is pretty lame. They really need to give you a ACH option. $15 is cheap for a wire though. Let's do some math. Assume you had a $100,000 CD and it takes you 3 days to ACH transfer out to a 2% Savings account you would be losing $16.44 in interest even more if you have a higher rate.

Every bank I deal with offers next day ACH, not three days. And for Christ’s sake our payment system is antiquated compared to Europe’s. I sure as hell am not going to give my business to a bank that doesn’t provide at least the crappy 1 day ACH service that we’ve come to tolerate. Why would I encourage that?

I’m sure there will be other banks within a month offering 3% 24 month CD’s.

Yeah I have one day ACH at some banks too but I have seen it take as long as 7 days if a weekend/holiday falls in there. Bank purely for example. I was just using 3 days as a rough average to do a fair comparison of the wire fee vs. lost interest.

Too early to worry about how to get the money out, if you can't get it in.
I read the reviews here:
In late June, two people reported they could not open a CD online. I was curious, so I decided to see what the current. situation is

Nothing seems to have changed. If anyone can figure out how to open an online CD with this internet bank, please post.

It works. The CD bank website just takes you to TBK bank and they ask you how you heard of them. I clicked on SOCIAL MEDIA/ONLINE ADD then click the continue button. Then on the next screen click on the highlighted PRIVACY POLICY another screen pops up click the little acknowledgement box at the lower left corner. Then click ACCEPT at the bottom of the next page and it takes you to the application. I'm not going any further but I will assume that it's working since I got that far.

GM right notes is beating any and all FDIC insured savings and MMA's at the moment @ 2.28% APY. So your point is? Also it will be 2.5% in short order as it actually moves along with FED hikes. GMAC was beating any and all money market and savings accounts for decades and matching 5 year CD's for a good number of years as well. With the FDIC short of funds to cover their limits if their was a run on the banks I don't think you are that much safer. NCUA looks like the safest place at the moment depending on how paranoid you are.
?   |     |   Comment #22
Both the FDIC and the NCUA have a line of credit with the Treasury.
And, Congress has a habit of increasing that line of credit as needed.
Do they really have any choice?
Cover the FDIC/NCUA - or, have runs on the banks/credit unions.
Treasury bonds are backed by the full faith and credit of the US government.
Of course, that doesn't mean as much as it used to due to the Republicans.
Remember when they held the government hostage because of the debt?
Remember when these so-called patriots ruined the credit rating of their country?
The same debt they increased dramatically last year to give tax breaks to the rich!

Hey Obama doubled the debt and I'm far from rich and this tax cut is saving me a ton! I'm at the top of the new 12% tax bracket(married filing jointly) down from 15%. Now that equates to a 20% Federal tax cut. The first $24,000 of income is also tax free for us poor folks. Not only that but "qualified" dividends and long term capital gains are tax free in the 12% bracket. Wait it get even better the Roth IRA is 100% tax free for life interest/dividends and capital gains and us lower income folks can max this out as well. Those tax cuts for the "rich" only are working out pretty good for this poor guy! lol

GM " Right" notes require a minimum of $50,000 to get that rate. One must take into account the potential risks to your capital and if the extra interest is worth the risk holding unsecured debt.. They are at the bottom rung of Moody's investment grade ratings:

The Notes are not a money market fund, which is typically a diversified fund consisting of short-term debt securities of many companies.

"Only GM Financial is obligated to pay the principal of and interest on the Notes, and only its assets are available for this purpose. If GM Financial’s assets are insufficient to pay the principal of and interest on the Notes, you could lose some or all of your investment

The Committee chooses the interest rate in its sole discretion, and the
interest rate chosen by the Committee does not necessarily bear any relation to the risks associated with or changes in our creditworthiness, credit rating or financial condition and may not compensate you for any increase
in credit risk of investment in the Notes. Moreover, the Committee may establish different interest rates applicable to different Notes in its sole discretion at any time.

I'm fully aware of the risks. I'm only keeping $50,000 in there for now and the rest at Northern. The old GMAC demand notes only required $1,000 to earn the highest rate until they introduced the tier levels. I was just pointing out that it IS the top rate for liquid cash because folks keep slamming me about these corporate debt accounts. Hey at least it is investment grade debt I have seen these accounts drop into lower ratings before. They don't put a 60 day lock on your funds either I can ACH out the entire balance quickly if I need to. Like I did during the GM bankruptcy.
Rickny   |     |   Comment #39
Please don't compare Demand notes that are unsecured debt to insured products or a even a diversified money market account. You comfortable with the risk that's your choice.
deplorable 1
deplorable 1   |     |   Comment #42
They are comparable if the fact that they are liquid cash. I was never comparing the safety of FDIC/NCUA to the credit of one company. Although having diversification even on liquid cash may not be such a bad idea since the FDIC does not have the funds to cover 100% of depositors in the event of a run on the banks. Some NCUA and bank account alternatives can offer this diversification.
Rickny   |     |   Comment #47
#42 You mention the GM notes when you discuss savings or deposit accounts.. I wouldn't use demand notes and savings accounts in the same sentence. The posts on this site should be used to share information on deposit accounts and not be used as comparison with non uninsured; unsecured debt. People here need to understand the risks and if they are suitable to their risk tolerance. There is no comparison to the risk levels between insured savings account and non insured, unsecured debt of a company.

Nope it means that they want YOU to lock up your money for long terms at low rates so they can take advantage of the yield spread as interest rates rise. Banks are not dumb and they know exactly what they are doing. For a prime example do you remember that 3% 7 year CD that was offered in 2016 or 2017? Well that deal has 5-6 years to go and now you can get 3% on a 2 year CD.
RJM   |     |   Comment #25
The list above does not induce anyone to lock up their money beyond 24 months. If they wanted people to lock in for 3-5 years, those rates would be higher.

You're talking about the 84-month, 3.01% CD from Andrews FCU, which I bought in November 2016. Note that it also has a 6 month EWP. If I were to cash out today (which I'm not contemplating so far), I would have made 2.14% during that time period. I would have no complaints about that.

@111: During that time NFCU offered a 5 month 3% CD, I have a 9 month @ 2.75%, I opened up 8 Insight card 5% on $5,000 savings accounts(6 of them still up and earning 5%) plus 5% on $1,000 netspend card savings. Multiple bank bonuses earning 20% ROI etc. I just can't see locking up money for 5-7 years for less than 5-6%. I'm always working multiple deals though so I guess if you just keep cash sitting in savings 3% isn't bad.
111   |     |   Comment #44
deplorable1 - I'm not criticizing your approach - in fact I've taken advantage of a couple of those things you mentioned (NFCU, which had a low max limit BTW, some bank bonuses, etc., and I still may do the Andrews 2.75% CD.) I'm just pointing out that the mild 6-month EWP on the 2016 3.01% Andrews CD made it a lot more palatable for me to go out that long. Some might say there's a risk that some FIs will renege on their EWP terms, and it has happened, but rarely. I always consider the EWP when looking at longer-term CDs, even through I've never actually taken an EW. So, if I wanted to liquidate that CD today, to have made 2.14% from 11/2016 through today, including the EWP, is fine by me.

Also, I think we're somewhat jaded by the present - after years of nothing, 3% looked a lot better in 2016 than it does today.

The Andrews 7 year CD with the 3.01% APY and the mild 6 month EWP was really attractive in November 2016. Nothing else came close to it at the time. Discover was offering around 2% on a 10 year CD with a TWO YEAR EWP. After Andrews, the next best nationally available APY at the time was 2.26% on a 5 year CD (6 month EWP) from State Bank of India.
I opened a 7 year CD with Andrews in Nov. 2016 and, much like @111, have not regretted it one bit. I am always amazed at the people who comment on this site on how people who took advantage of that Andrews CD offer must be regretting their decision now!! What is there to regret? If significantly higher rates become available in the near future, I will pay the EWP and move my money and in doing so, I will still make more money than if I had not opened that Andrews CD back in 2016.
3.01% is still a decent rate almost two years later!

Now there is a 18 month CD @ 3.15% APY. I'm personally glad I passed on that 3.01% CD. I'm kicking myself for opening that Vibe CU 5 year CD @ 2.5% 3 years ago and that was a great deal at the time.

It is interesting. I want to think it means they are discouraging people from locking in their money long term because they believe rates will rise quickly and they want to avoid a flood of early withdrawals. Mind you, very harsh EWP for 24 months.

What is your sweet spot for a CD?

For me, I might open a 12 month for 3%, an 18 month for 3.25% or a 2 year for 3.50%.

I think we might get one of them in 2-4 months.

Otherwise, I am probably going to sit on my 2.26% rate.

(already have a large 9 month at 2.75%)
111   |     |   Comment #36
Well, I'll tell you - I'm sitting tight for right now. I have multiple 2-year add-on CDs at 2.70% as kind of a "backstop" rate insurance. I have multiple "1-year-guarantee" savings accounts at 2.26%, as "bottom insurance". I have not yet "bit" on the 9-month, 2.75% from Andrews FCU, but I might.

I'd like to see, quite soon, another 3%, 2-year CD, but without such a nasty EWP and lousy ACH connectivity as this one. Failing that, I'll keep my powder dry. My sweet spot is fungible - I want to see what happens with the economy in the next few months.
