Expert review

A Huntington CD may be a good option if you live within this bank’s 11-state service area and are looking for flexible term options. Even though it’s a regional bank, it has 24/7 customer support and no monthly fees. But the minimum deposits are high and the APYs are low. If a high interest rate is what you’re after, you may want to keep looking.

Benefits of a Huntington CD

Here are the perks you’ll get when you open a Huntington CD:

  • No monthly fee. The only time you’ll pay a fee is if you need to access your money early.
  • Daily compound interest. When you earn interest on yesterday’s interest, your account balance grows faster than it would with other compounding methods.
  • Customer service. Huntington offers 24/7 customer service by phone.
  • Selection of term options. Choose from several term options ranging from one month to 72 months.

What to watch out for

There are several potential drawbacks to watch out for before opening a Huntington CD:

  • Low rates. Interest rates range from 0.01% to 0.1%, which is much lower than the competition.
  • High minimum deposit. You need to deposit at least $1,000 to open a CD.
  • Limited availability. Huntington accounts are only available to residents of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
  • Restricted funding options. You can’t fund this account with money from another Huntington deposit account.
  • Must open at a branch. All Huntington CDs must be opened in person.
  • Substantial withdrawal penalties. Unlike most CDs that charge penalties as a portion of interest earned, Huntington charges based on your principal deposit.
