Top CD Rates at Doral Bank in NYC and Florida Panhandle

POSTED ON BY

Doral Bank NY has maintained very competitive CD and IRA CD rates for more than a year. Rates on two of these CDs just went up by 5 basis points. The 18-month CD rate is now 1.30% APY and the 2-year CD rate is 1.50% APY. The other rates have remained the same. The best ones include a 1.20% APY 1-year CD and a 1.60% APY 3-year CD. These rates are also available as IRA CDs. Minimum deposit is $500. These rates are listed in the Doral Bank NY rates page as of 5/9/2014.

At the top of the bank’s rates page it states "Online, telephone and mail-in applications are available to all residents of the New York Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA)." So these CDs are only available to residents of the NYC metro area. Doral Bank has two branches in New York City.

Doral Bank also has branches in the Florida Panhandle. However, the CD rates are different. In the past they did not list rates for these branches, but that has changed. The bank now list these rates, and the rates are also very competitive. Doral Bank Florida currently has three promotional CD rates. These include a 1.13% APY 13-month CD, a 1.25% APY 25-month CD and a 1.45% APY 37-month CD. The 25-month and 37-month CD specials have a nice feature. There’s no penalty after CD is opened for at least 1 year. However, after a year, the penalty is harsh. In that case it’s equal to 365 days of interest. These rates and other rates are listed in the Doral Bank Florida rates page as of 5/9/2014.

These Florida rates are limited to residents of the area near Doral Bank Florida branches which are in the cities of Pensacola, Panama City and Panama City Beach.

Doral Bank's internet division, Doral Bank Direct, also has some competitive rates. The most competitive are its short-term CDs with terms under one year. Its 1-year, 18-month and 2-year CD rates are much lower than Doral Bank New York rates and Doral Bank Florida rates.

Most of Doral Bank branches are located in Puerto Rico, and they also have a good CD deal with a 1.30% APY 1-year CD. This is listed in the Doral Bank's Puerto Rico offers page as of 5/9/2014. Last year readers verified that you must have a Puerto Rican address to qualify for these CDs.

I just opened a 1.5% for 2 years.  No credit check but you have to send, fax or upload 2 pieces of identification.  I have dealt with them before.  A little quirky but OK to deal with.

Thanks for sharing your experience with Doral. That 2-year CD is a good deal.

One other item. When you close the CD you have to send in the original paper certificate they send you
