Oklahoma Interest Rates Rank Atop the Nation

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla_ Go Banking Rates continues its "Best Rates in Every State" series by focusing on interest rates offered by local banks and credit unions in Oklahoma. The interest rate aggregating website compared Oklahoma's average rates on savings accounts, 6-month CDs, 1-year CDs and 2-year CDs against national averages, and ranked the state against the rest of the U.S. for each deposit product. 

According to the rankings compiled by Go Banking Rates, using its database of interest rates from more than 4,000 U.S. banks and credit unions, average deposit account interest rates in Oklahoma are significantly higher than the national average in all categories:

Account Type: National Average Rate; Oklahoma Average Rate

  • 6-Month CD: 0.31% APY; 0.47% APY
  • 1-Year CD: 0.46% APY; 0.64% APY
  • 2-Year CD: 0.69% APY; 0.86% APY
  • Savings Account: 0.21% APY; 0.34% APY

Additionally, Oklahoma interest rates rank first when compared to the rest of the U.S. in every category except for 2-year CD rates (which still rank highly at #5):

  • 6-Month CD: 1st
  • 1-Year CD: 1st
  • 2-Year CD: 5th
  • Savings Account: 1st

While average interest rates in Oklahoma exceed the national average overall, individuals interested in earning the highest deposit rates can review the study's top 10 institutions for each rate category.
