Ponce Bank’s CDs are hard to match. Offering rates as high as 5.5% APY if you open through the savings marketplace Raisins, and deposits as low as $1, it’s a great deal. If you want to open the CD directly with Ponce Bank, you’ll find rates nearly just as good, up to 5.25% APY, but you’ll need at least to $1,000 as an opening deposit. With high rates on its very low terms, Ponce Bank easily places itself among some of the CDs in the current market.

- Highly competitive rates
- Open directly with bank or Raisin
- Low deposit requirements from $1 to $1,000

Overview of Ponce Bank CD rates and Raisin
Ponce Bank offers two ways to get its competitive CDs: Directly with the bank, or through its partner Raisin. Raisin is a savings account marketplace that partners up with select banks and credit unions and offers exclusive desks on savings accounts and CDs. Ponce Bank itself offers a little more variety in term lengths, but opening with Raisin has a significantly lower opening deposit requirement.
Opening directly with Ponce Bank yield rates up to 5.25% APY with its promotional 13-month CD. The average rate on a 12-month CD is just 1.85%(1), so Ponce Bank is well above national averages. But for CDs from one to six months, you need at least to open, and all other CDs require at least $1,000.
Raisin offers Ponce Bank’s CDs with the low opening deposit requirement of just $1. These promotional and exclusive CDs offer rates up to 5.5% APY on a nine-month term. Raisin also offers a 5.4% APY on a three-month term — that high rate is practically unheard of for CDs under six months.
Either way you open a CD with Ponce Bank, you’ll find high rates, competitive opening deposit requirements and a variety of term lengths. Your account is also FDIC-insured through Ponce Bank if you open the CD directly with them or through Raisin.

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.
