On Friday, June 15th, 2018, Ally raised the rates for all tiers of its 11-month, no-penalty CD. Unfortunately, even the CD’s top tier rate of 1.8% on deposit amounts of at least $25,000 is still not competitive with CIT’s 11-month, no-penalty CD which earns 1.85% on all deposit amounts (minimum is $1K) or, for that matter, CIT’s Money Market Account, which also has a 1.85% APY.
The rates for Ally’s no-penalty CD are now:
- 1.80% APY for deposits of $25,000 or more (was previously 1.50%)
- 1.75% APY for deposits between $5,000 and $24,999.99 (was previously 1.50%)
- 1.25% APY for deposits of less than $5,000 (was previously 1.15%)
At the same time, Ally also raised the rate for their savings account from 1.6% to 1.65%. They also raised the rates on five other CD products (with-penalty CDs). However, since their no-penalty CD is closest to being a rate leader, this post highlights only those changes.
