Chase CD rates

Rates vary by location and deposit amount, and whether you already have a Chase Bank checking account. Here's a range of rates for San Francisco:

  • 1-year: 0.01%-0.05% APY

  • 3-year: 0.01%-0.20% APY

  • 5-year: 0.01%-0.20% APY

  • 10-year: 0.01%-0.20%APY

Chase’s certificates of deposit rates are generally low, but they can be somewhat better if you have a Chase checking account. The bank’s main strengths are the variety of CD terms and a relatively low minimum deposit.

Chase CD rates

  • Standard CD rates at Chase Bank are available to anyone and require a minimum deposit of $1,000, while some banks' CDs require at least $5,000 or $10,000.

  • Relationship rates are for those who have a personal Chase checking account that they can link to a Chase CD, and higher deposits usually mean higher rates.

  • To open a Chase CD online, you need a Chase checking or savings account; otherwise, visit a branch.

This is a look at some of Chase's rates for the most common CD terms.

    What to consider when opening CDs

    • Interest rates are fixed. If you open a Chase CD today, its APY 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 will go up. See our article on historical 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 Chase CD before it expires, there’s an early withdrawal penalty, which means losing some or all the interest you earned. Some other banks offer CDs with no penalties; see the best no-penalty CD rates.

    Solid range of terms, but low rates

    Chase Bank CDs may be a convenient option if you already have a Chase checking account, want more choice with CD terms, and have a lump sum you won't need for a while, but you can find higher rates elsewhere.
