How Capital One’s CDs compare to top-yielding banks
Capital One offers some of the best CD rates. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to find higher rates elsewhere. Marcus by Goldman Sachs, Limelight Bank and Ally Bank are among the banks offering a higher payout than Capital One on a 12-month CD, for instance.
Make sure you compare CD rates at a number of banks before you make a decision on where to park your savings. After all, your goal should be to get the highest rate of returns possible for the term that works with your timeline. But before locking away your money in a CD, read the fine print. Some banks require heftier deposits to open a CD, for instance.
