Wachovia Bank Lowers CD Rates

Sadly, the special 3.75% APY rate at Wachovia Bank for a 9-month CD we reported here (See April 1: Best CD Rate Survey Update) is no longer available.

Wachovia has lowered this special rate to 3.15% with all other APY terms between 1.29% and 1.80%.

Wachovia's lowest regular rate today at 1.29% is for a 9-month CD. It looks like they lure you in with the special 3.15% rate then hope you let it roll-over and renew automatically at their lowest rate. Make sure you set your electronic calendar to remind you to renew for a different term, a different bank with better rates or a new special rate when the CD comes due.
