Written by: BetterFinancePath Staff

According to a recent Primerates.com survey conducted on March 12, 2012 of Miami CD rates offered by the area banks & credit unions, Miami’s largest financial institutions offered short-term savers 6 month CD’s between rates of 0.05% at Wells Fargo (www.wellsfargo.com), and 0.30% at Bank of America (www.bankofamerica.com). BankUnited (www.bankunited.com) is offering the highest 2-year CD rate, with 0.95% CD, while you will be able to obtain the highest 5-year CD at Suntrust Bank (www.suntrust.com), with a return of 1.29% CD.

CD’s are typically insured up to $250,000 by the FDIC. As CD’s mature, banks typically re-price the rates on deposits. Make sure that you track when your CD’s mature so that you can roll them over into new CD’s and keep your money working as hard as possible.
