Take Advantage of Higher Savings Rates

May 9, 2019

Are you ready to ramp up your savings? Now is the perfect time to focus on saving for your future. Maybe you’re saving up for a down payment on a home, a tropical vacation or a new washer and dryer. Whatever your goals, you can get there faster when you put your money to work in one of PeoplesBank’s savings products.

The rates on savings accounts, money market accounts and certificates of deposit (CDs) are the highest they’ve been in years. View our current rates here.

Savings Accounts

Having money in an easily accessible savings account helps build financial stability. You can quickly access your money, making a standard savings account a convenient place to park savings for short-term goals, such as a vacation.

Money Market Accounts

Money market accounts offer similar liquidity to a savings account, but your balance can earn more interest when you maintain a minimum deposit amount. Money market accounts are a good place for larger amounts that you may need to access quickly, such as an emergency fund.

CDs

CDs are a great way to earn interest over the long term. You can open a CD in a range of terms with longer terms earning the highest rates. Choose a term that matches the timeline of your goal so the money will be ready when you need it. Or, if you want more flexibility, open multiple CDs with different terms so you can access your savings at regular intervals. CDs are a great way to save for future goals like a down payment on a house or higher education.
