    What to consider when opening CDs

    • Interest rates are fixed. If you open a Capital One CD today, its annual percentage yield will stay the same until the CD expires. This benefits you if you lock in a CD before rates start dropping, but on the flip side, you’ll earn less on a CD if rates keep rising. It’s hard to know when CD rates go up, but here’s a quick look at historical CD rates, including this year’s. Or, if you want a sample of rates each month, see current CD rates.

    • You lose interest if you withdraw early. CDs are built to keep your money out of sight, out of mind. If you dip into a Capital One bank CD before it expires, there’s an early withdrawal penalty, which means losing some or all the interest you earned.

    » On the fence about a CD? If there’s a chance you’ll need access to your money, look into the best high-yield savings accounts instead.
