With the Super Bowl behind us, many football fans have already set their sights on the coming fall. Why not take advantage of a high yield short-term CD in the meantime to help save up for tailgating next season? If you choose the right bank or credit union, you could get access to a 3 to 6 month CD yielding 8 to 10 times more than a typical savings account.
