    I've been a customer since CIT emerged from the financial crisis as a real competitor in this space (14 years or so). Zero complaints about anything over this time ... until today. Now they are offering a higher rate 0.90% for new customers than for someone like me who has been loyal. The higher 20 basis points is $1,000 a year on my account of $250,000 that they prefer to give to someone who will be there for a couple months instead of to me who would (would have) stayed another 14 years. What gives?

    Hi RTN1949, we consider a number of marketplace factors when setting or changing the interest rates on our CDs, Savings and Money Market accounts. You can earn a higher rate offered on Savings Connect by opening an account online in 10 minutes or less and transferring the funds from your current account to the new Savings Connect account. Thank you.

    I agree, I am earning far less now, so I am pulling out and going to another bank with far better interest!!!!!!

    Opened account a month ago. I've already seen the rate fall a couple of times, but have no other complaints. Easy process and a clear easy to use site (unlike Ally where I was before).

    Online CDs 12 Month Rates

    Don't get your hopes up. That 1.25% APY is old news. CIT is posting 1.00%

    Online CDs 12 Month Rates

    I agree with JN Howard, CIT's rates have fallen into a lower tier. Their website is clunky and slow as well. I did manage to open a few Cds when they were more competitive. At one point earlier this year they offered the best rate I could find with a $1000 minimum deposit.

    They defacto refused to remit funds for an ACH transfer forcing me to use other funds if I wanted that new account.
