Thought those were 3 year CDs? you going to take a big hit breaking them for kid's tuition in 2 years? or have the first year tuition all banked already?

Yeah...they are 3yr. I had to rationalize the extra year. Not sure how I'll cover that.....something will come along. It seems the penalty is 6 months dividend, so it's not too harsh if I go at least 2.5 yrs, but I'm thinking more of a low rate credit card loan or 401k loan. I have 1 kid in college now and will have two in college at the same time in 2009-2011, so thats the timeframe when the double tuition hits.

You can always get a CD Loan. PFCU will loan you 90% of the value of the CD and the interest rate will be 2% over the APR you are now getting on the CD. Payments are optional during the term of the loan. Try that with a Bank CD!

Now we need to look for some .2% penfed cd's to get a nice 2.2% loan...

I just got one the other day (to purchase a 6% CD). The rate is 6.16% since the CD that backs the loan was an older one for 4.16%. The way I figured it a 6% APY on an increasing balance versus a 6.16% rate on a decreasing balance was the better option. BTW no payments are required on the loan but I will pay it down at anyways.
