careful locking into long term CDs (over a year) in this market. rates are rising and if you lock in for too long, odds are good that the regular savings rate will pass your CD rate. just something to keep in mind.

personally i ladder 1-years at ING but have not even been doing that for a while since rates were rising so fast. all three of my current CDs are at lower rates than the regular savings account.
