CIT Bank CD Rates: 5 Year Jumbo CD Rates at 1.90% APY

An online bank that was offering the best CD rates on our rate lists last year is still offering the best CD rates today. CIT Bank is the online bank that has the highest CD rates on 5 year jumbo certificates of deposit at 1.88 percent with an APY of 1.90 percent. That rate is 50 basis points higher than the current national average 5 year CD rate of 1.40 percent.

If you have a small business and taken out a small business loan you probably have heard of CIT Banks parent company CIT Group which is the leader in providing financing loans to small and medium sized business.

Last October CIT Bank CD rates on their 1 year Achiever certificates of deposit were at 1.14 percent with an APY of 1.15 percent. Current 1 year Achiever CD rates are slightly lower at 1.09 percent with an APY of 1.10 percent.

CD rates at banks have been on the decline since 2008 so it isn't a surprise CIT rates are lower than they were last year. Though a decline of only 5 basis points is unusual since most bank CD rates have been lowered a lot more in the past year.
