Lock in an APY and your term. Then, all you have to do is look forward to your interest payout at the end of that term.
Your funds are securely invested in a risk-free environment and locked in for your guaranteed term. Sit back and wait for the benefits to roll in!
CD rates generally bring in a higher rate of return than regular deposit accounts, and the best part is that you don't have to worry about stock prices.

What is a CD?
A certificate of deposit is a timed deposit. You deposit a specific amount of money for an agreed upon term and after the term is up, you withdraw the money along with a healthy sum of interest.
The higher the annual percentage yield (APY), the higher amount of interest you will earn on your deposit.
There is a penalty for early-withdrawal, so as long as you have a decent emergency fund, it's a fairly low-risk investment and a good way to tie up some of your funds if you're looking for a way to avoid spending in favor of saving.
What would I use a CD for?
A CD is similar to a savings account in that it earns interest and is backed by FDIC insurance. Where it differs is the flexibility of your funds. You can't make withdrawals before the term is complete without penalty.
You could use a short-term CD to save for:
- Small house projects
- Larger purchases that require a sizeable amount of cash
Start by putting your funds into a CD with a high rate of return, so when it's time to make that purchase you've got a little bit more saved than if you had placed those funds into a savings or money market account.
