Why SaveBetter Is, Well, Better
Benefits of Certificates of Deposit (CDs)
Certificates of deposit, also known as CDs, are a type of deposit account offered by banks and credit unions. CDs allow you to earn interest on your money like other deposit accounts, such as a savings account, but there are some key aspects that make CDs unique. Notably, CDs tend to offer among the highest available interest rates of all banking deposit products.
Unlike savings accounts or money market accounts, you can deposit a set amount of money into your CD account and commit to leaving your money there for a fixed period of time. Terms may last as little as three months, or as long as five years (60 months) or even longer. In return, you'll earn a fixed amount of interest based on a predetermined interest rate. The rate of a CD typically does not change during the during term, which is why you may see the product called a fixed-term CD. Another type of CD is a no-penalty CD, which gives the owner more flexibility to withdraw funds before the CD's maturity date.
When the CD term is up — when the product has reached maturity — you’ll be able to withdraw your original balance plus any interest earned, or opt to rollover all or part of those proceeds into a new CD with a new term. A key benefit of opening a CD is you’ll know exactly how much of a return you’ll receive when your money is ready to withdraw at the maturity date you selected.

Tips for Using Certificates of Deposit
There are a host of advantages to leveraging certificates of deposit (CDs) to boost your savings. You are likely to earn more interest with a CD compared to that of a competitive high-yield savings account. Plus, the interest rate you earn for the duration of the CD term won’t fluctuate over time. And you can pick a term to fit your needs. This feature allows you to structure CDs in sequences, such as the CD ladder, which provides periodic access to savings while tapping the highest available interest rates of the longest-term products.

SaveBetter is a digital platform that gives savers unparalleled access to a variety of deposit products through the convenience of a single account, helping you unlock the growth potential of your cash savings.
SaveBetter customers use the platform to fund Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) insured deposit products offered by numerous U.S. banks with a wide range of maturities and interest rates, allowing you to build a savings strategy to suit your earning and liquidity needs.
SaveBetter is not a bank. It’s a New York-based financial technology company (“Fintech” for short) that provides the digital “storefront” where banks can promote their deposit products.
SaveBetter.com is operated by SaveBetter LLC, a 100% subsidiary of Deposit Solutions LLC (Deposit Solutions). Headquartered in New York, Deposit Solutions provides a proprietary open architecture platform for deposits products. Deposit Solutions helps banks improve their deposit funding by offering national reach for their retail deposit products, and provides savers with better access, more choice and higher convenience when evaluating savings products from FDIC insured banks.
Deposit Solutions LLC is a 100% subsidiary of Raisin GmbH, a trailblazer for open banking in the deposits and investments space.
Your SaveBetter account gives you access to savings accounts and Certificates of Deposit (CDs) offered by a variety of banks with the security of FDIC insurance. These products include:
High-yield Savings Account (HYSA). As its name indicates, this account type functions like a traditional savings account—with typically no restrictions on depositing and withdrawing funds—but earns interest at rates that are higher than the national average for standard savings accounts.
Money Market Deposit Account (MMDA). Also known as a money market account or MMA, this type of savings account offers a varying rate that allows you to earn interest on your funds with maximum flexibility for withdrawals. Like a HYSA, an MMDA offers features of a traditional savings account with typically higher returns.
No Penalty CD. Through the flexibility of a No Penalty CD, you can lock in a competitive rate for a fixed term with the option to make a full withdrawal at any time beginning seven (7) calendar days after funding without having to pay a penalty for the early termination.
Fixed Term CD. With this longstanding savings vehicle, funds are held for a fixed term, and a competitive interest rate provides safe, predictable earnings. In contrast to No Penalty CDs, typically you are charged a fee if you do not complete the full term of the Fixed Term CD.
Interest is compounded daily and posted to your account monthly.
Yes! A depositor’s savings are insured by the FDIC up to the maximum amount in accordance with and as permitted by law at each bank holding their funds.
The standard deposit insurance coverage limit is $250,000 per depositor, per FDIC-insured bank, per account ownership category. Ownership categories as defined by the FDIC include single bank accounts (owned by one person/depositor) and joint bank accounts (owned by two or more persons/depositors). Revocable trust accounts and some types of retirement accounts (e.g., IRAs) are among the other ownership categories covered by FDIC insurance.
Deposits held in different ownership categories are separately insured, even if held at the same bank.
All deposits you have at a bank — whether facilitated through SaveBetter or otherwise — count toward the deposit insurance limit. If funds held at a bank in a certain ownership category exceed the coverage limit, then the amount in excess of the limit will not be insured.
