I locked some nice rates last week when I built a 5 year CD ladder. :)

Everything was between 4.91-5.16%. That’s not bad right now.

I was @ the bank 2 days back. The banker said that he could offer 0.25% more than the posted rates for a CD. The CD rate was not bad, comparable to the posts here and worth investing in anyway. Note – I did not ask him for higher rates, from my talk it appeared that I was a person with decent money :))). So advise to all, do not hesitate to ask for more interest. On 5% APY, additional 0.25% is huge, it is 20%. I do not want to mention the bank name though, will say it is one of the very large ones, not affected by home subprime problems.
