    I submitted a CD application 18 months 5.50 APY over a week ago and my application was declined no reason was given, I have the funds in another bank for transfer, credit score over 800. I think the reason is because the interest is coming down and they are not willing to offer those rates. At the time of application, the rates were still being offer but it took Popular Direct over a week to review, remember I'm not borrowing money, I'm depositing money, what a joke

    Online CDs 12 Month Rates

    1-year rate of 5.35% is good, but the early withdrawal penalties are absurd. Unless you know you won't need the money in less than 1-year (no loss of job, divorce, cancer, etc.), buying a 1-year CD with a 270 day early withdrawal penalty is a bad idea. I will gladly take a little less for a lower fee. Forbright at 5.30% is a much better idea here.
