My CD is due tomorrow.

July 29th, 2007 at 05:47 pm

MY first certificate of deposit is coming due tomorrow. It was for 6 months, earning 5.75%. I made $2,796 in interest for the past 6 months.
I have to go into the bank tomorrow to roll it over. I am sure that I will if I can get at least 5.25% or more.
I am thinking about taking the interest out as that puts me over the fdic limit. Well, actually, it doesn't. I forgot that if you have two names on the account, you have double the insurance.
I got a check from ace hardware on a rebate that I sent in. I usually do not mess with rebates, but this was for a tool that my husband needed. The check was for $10 and I walked a mile, so I have $11 to add to my challenge money.
Prev. total $15,983.00
today 11.00
new total $15,994.00

    Do you physically need to go to the bank? If you are just rolling it over, that should be automatic unless you are changing the terms, adding or subtracting money. If you will just be leaving the full amount in a CD renewing for the same term, you shouldn't need to actually go there.

    No actually,I don't but since I am cashing my husband's paycheck at the bank across the street, I thought I would just walk over and find out what the new rate will be. I kind of expect the rate to do down.

    Ima: When it comes to rebates or surveys, I just cash them and wait until the end of the month and deposit everything including my coupon money, money from food, found money, etc. I don't find it economical to go to the bank everytime I receive one of these checks. I normally wait until I need to make a deposit and just do what is needed then.
