That's what I thought I was trying to do, but I think I may have done it wrong, thus something redflagged me. The closed CD's went into our Ally Checking Account so it wasn't the too many WD issue. The thing that annoyed me was the customer rep couldn't override the situation or get me to the back office where they could fix it immediately. So here I sit and wait for the call to fix this.

I wanted flexibility in case I wanted some of the money to invest elsewhere or cover an expense. That way I wouldn't have to close out more than I needed to, so I opened four $25,000 Cd's and one $50,000 CD.

Heartland Bank, a regional bank (various locations). Their Princeton IL bank has 2.10% 14 month CD offer as of 8/1/18. Minimum of $5,000. They said it has to be "new money" to their bank. I asked if a person couldn't use money that was already on deposit there ?? They said Yes, with special permission.

That's the best I've found searching on-line today at local institutions.

US Senate Federal Credit Union has a 5 year 3.53% CD with a 1 year EWP.

Greenwood Credit Union has a 3 year 3.25% CD with a 6 month EWP.

I currently have a 2.25% CD with Barclays that will cost me 6 months worth of interest to terminate early but I'm thinking the Greenwood deal is hard to beat with only a 6 month EWP and a full percentage higher rate.

This week's ST Treasury are 2.01 for 3 months and 2.20 for 6 month. Takes about 2 clicks to buy at Fido. If you had to sell, Fido only charges a $1/1000 bond--10k of value+10 bonds+$10 sales cost

To be honest, it's a bit of a PIA splitting these up at a bunch of different banks to stay under the 250k FDIC limits. Am considering combing some where the rates are best.

Going through a brokerage can help with this. You are not having to deal with the different banks directly.

Doesn't everyone keep a certain amount of "mad money"?
