CD Rates continue to drop like rocks. I suspect if the Fed keeps their promise of keeping rates low into 2013, that 5-year CD rates will drop below 1.00% and 2-year rates will get to around 0.50%. So I wouldn’t hold off and hope for a better deal at this point.

The above sites provide access to rates that they find. I would suggest checking them out. I don’t believe the economy is going anywhere. If you can, now would be a great time to refinance mortgages, cars, trailers, etc. 15-year mortgage rates are in the mid-3.00%. We tried but our home value had dropped to far. Still we have decent rate at 5.87%. We bought our house about 9-years ago.

Anyway with rates as low as they are, paying off high interest debt gives you a much better return. Just some thoughts.
