Other types of CDs

The jumbo CD rates require higher deposit requirements, as expected. The promotional rates are also significantly higher, and the standard rates are all 0.5% APY. Huntington displays some of its term lengths in days, which we’ve converted to months for an easier comparison, as that’s the industry standard.

Minimum deposit

  • Jumbo: $100,000
$1,000 is a typical deposit requirement for standard, fixed-rate CDs.
Term range7 days to 72 monthsLarge range of CD terms compared to the competition, as the shortest term offered is typically 1 month.
Early withdrawal penaltiesEarly withdrawal penalty varies by term:
  • 91 days or less: All earned interest during term
  • 92 days to 1 year: 3 months of earned interest
  • 1 year to 18 months: 6 months of earned interest
  • Over 18 months: 12 months of earned interest
Typical early withdrawal penalties; however, the shortest terms under 91 days forfeit all earned interest.
Grace period10 days after the maturity dateTypical amongst competitors.

Cashout and rollover details

Huntington offers a 10-day grace period after your CD’s maturity date with the withdrawal of your funds with no fees. If you don’t withdraw your funds at maturity or during the grace period, the CD is automatically renewed for the same term you originally had but at the current rate.

How Huntington’s CDs and rates compare

To open any of its CDs, you must go to a Huntington branch. For that sole reason, these deposit accounts are best suited for someone who lives in one of the 11 states the bank serves: Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Besides the promotional rates, most Huntington’s CDs offer a 0.5% APY. The best rate offered at the moment is 5.13% APY for 7 months, which is significantly higher than the national average rate of 1.79% for six-month CDs, as reported by the FDIC. (1)

The minimum deposit requirement of $1,000 is rather typical. Most banks require a deposit of around $500 to $1,000 for their standard fixed-rate CDs. However, some banks don’t have a minimum deposit at all, such as Barclays and Capital One.

Compared to other banks of its size, Huntington offers a wide variety of term lengths — as short as 7 days. The majority of CD offerings you’ll see in the wild only go as short as 30 days. However, with the APY as low as it is on the 7-day term, you’re likely better off just keeping your funds in a high-yield savings account.

CDs ratings

★★★★★ — Excellent

★★★★★ — Good

★★★★★ — Average

★★★★★ — Subpar

★★★★★ — Poor

We rate CDs and share certificates on a scale ranging from one to five stars based on what matters most to you. We consider two factors equally when rating CDs: minimum deposits and annual percentage yields (APYs) relative to term length. If a bank requires a different minimum opening deposit depending on the chosen term, we rate the CD based on the average minimum deposit across all terms. And although some institutions offer CDs with terms ranging from one week to 20 years, we only consider term lengths the FDIC uses in its monthly updates on national rates.
