Discover
With a variety of term lengths, no hidden charges, and good rates, the Discover High Yield CD is a fantastic option for those looking for even short-term CDs.

Ally
Ally Bank offers a fast mobile app and that’s just the beginning. It also offers some of the highest yields and a low minimum deposit. It’s a strong contender to consider.

Quontic Bank
Quontic Bank has CD terms starting from six months that go up to 5 years. True to its online nature, it offers a fast, user-friendly mobile app as well.
