In other words, contrary to what a service-rep told Wendy earlier, if you can get your toe in the door, there is no upper limit to the size of the CD you can buy.

I still think the CD is a very bad choice that is sure to erode purchasing-power. But, for some people, in judicious amounts, it might not be as bad as some of their other choices. Your mileage will vary, of course. So do your due diligence before you buy and try to make a choice that you won't regret.
