    Si je vous écris en français, et si je demande la réponse quant aux différences entre l’intérêt indiqué–est-ce que tout le monde se mettra en colère aussi? Seulement une petite question…je suis américaine (et citoyenne!) mais moi, aussi, je suis bilingue!

    i was just at wachovia a few days ago, and they are not paying these kinds of rates…..not even close to what your trying to tell us they pay, and you only get a choice of 2 cd options, not any of these others you are showing here!!! why do you give us lies????!!!!!

  6. Buck said:
    on August 31st at 10:50 pm

    Of course not. The rate information was posted on August 11, 2008 – It’s more than a year old and well before before the sh** hit the fan. This website doesn’t keep current, This string is mostly mal-content bigots and racists whining about minorities not speaking English. The GOP has been defeated and it’s time for all the bigots and racists to step aside and watch the Democrats try to fix the financial disasters the GOPs created after eight years in power.

    I own a lot of stock in Wells Fargo. Buck is correct. If you can’t handle a simple situation like a website, how are you contributing to running a bank too big to fail?

    I work at Wachovia and since the buyout by Wells Fargo and the state of the economy you won’t see CD rates at what they were for a long time. As long as the Fed interest rate is low and mortgage rates are low as well the CD rates will follow suit (all banks have pretty much the same rates give or take a tenth of a percent). The basic concept of savings and loan.

    My suggestion to people who are looking to beat out the ridiculous infaltion that is looming over us and will hit very soon is to put your money in REAL investments that do pay and are not FDIC. But you need to know there is a risk in that but these products that are available are very stable and will earn you much more than a CD ever will. Still, there are people with realistic fears that their banks could fail in this economy and that is why there are CDs.

    You need to come to a compromise and take the low rates on CDs if you want 100% guaranteed or weigh the pros and cons and take an investment product such as bonds or other funds to compensate.

    I hope this helps everyone out.

    Came here looking for CD rates and got bombarded with a foreign language. I am AMERICAN and I read and write English. Wasn’t even given opportunity to Press 1 for English! This may sound racist (and I don’t care), but am tired of MY government giving in to people who want to live in this great country who don’t have the time to learn our language. Go to Greece or France or Germany and bombard these countries with Spanish and see what you get.

    guys, all of you need to stop being ignorant and realize that America is a diversified country. So quit sleeping in LA-LA land and open your eyes hope when you do that you look around and see things for ehat they are.
    stop with the judgement of others.

    It’s about time the So called, “American Public” realize that being able to speak in more than one language offers a treasure of opportunities. Not only for travel but for job opportunities. Get over the idea that Spanish is not an American language, hello? We’ve been hearing it for over 200 hundred years in this country. Just because one chooses to speak a certain language, doesn’t give them the right to tell others their language doesn’t count. It’s been tried in many European countries, i.e. Italy during the war years. God Bless one and ALL! No matter what you speak!

    Did anyone realized this is site is assessable from Mexico, Spain, or any country in South America. This is part of the internet. You don’t have to live in America to use it and you don’t have to speak English to use it. If some ones native language bothers you. LEARN IT.

  16. lou rey said:
    on April 12th at 06:03 pm

    to all you morons who claim america as your country. canada, usa, and mexico actually reside in what is considered america. as for going to other countries and speaking spanish and not being understood. wrong, spanish is the most widely spoken language in the world and almost every country has someone who understands it even russia. get a life and learn another language so that when you travel somewhere else you’ll be able to communicate with someone instead of feeling like they’re talking about you. i’m a 4th generation hispanic american and speak 7 languages fluently, retired military, married to non-hispanic wife so stop sitting on your stool complaining about what should be or not. bottom line is that in about 15 years spanish will probably be the majority language in the usa, a country that will probably be owned by china.

    Great rates! Incidentally, I am an American who appreciates the Spanish language and enjoys speaking it. The best countries I have visited are bilingual and bicultural. My fellow citizens who get so angry (and ugly) about language and culture reveal far more about themselves than they realize. We now have a President of color who I admire. Bet it drives them crazy!

    The Wachovia CD rates your publishing here as a featured CD has the wrong APY. 7 month is not available and not 4.0%. 9 month is not 4.15% it is .2%. 12 month is not 4.75APY it is 1.9%

    What’s with this racism? 1. Who says they need to live in USA to be using the internet? 2. To my knowledge, this is planet earth, and we’re humans, so why are u insulting Hispanics? 3. Hispanics descendants were natives of America, yet treated like immigrants. Just because someone puts up a fence doesn’t make it right to insult people. 4. Why, oh please tell me why, aren’t these comments about the topic?! I just inherited some money and wanted to know the best investment option. I just finished college.

    From the looks of things, a lot of Americans don’t speak English any more: ya know? there going their to be with there famlee. Mo Fo, ho, what up, aint so, gonna be, biotch, … and on and on. Even major news sites online have misspelled words! Sorry, that’s unforgiveable. If you publish, get it right.
    Rates at the Credit Union I use dropped yesterday. I cannot find any better rates anywhere, and they had the best rates in this area. To quote Zorg from The Fifth Element, ” I’m screwed.”
    One more thing: the rates at Wachovia are out of date; they’re from 2008. I’m sure they are much lower today.

    ACTUALLY IM AN IMMIGRANT AND WHEN I WAS ILLEGAL I DID PAY TAXES WITH WHAT IS CALLED A “Tax ID number” JUST IN CASE YOU IGNORANT “AMERICANS” DIDNT KNOW. I DIDN’T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE BECAUSE I DIDN’T HAVE A SSN. THEREFORE I COULDN’T GO TO ANY DOCTOR OR HOSPITAL BECAUSE IT WOULD ALL COME OUT OF POCKET. CAN YOU IMAGINE THE WORST PAIN IN YOUR LIFE AND NOT BEING ABLE TO BE LOOKED AT BY A DOCTOR BECAUSE YOU WILL OWE THEM AN EYE FOR JUST A SIMPLE ADVIL?????!!!!! I DINT THINK I WAS BETTER THEN ANYONE BUT I WALKED WITH MY HEAD UP HIGH BECAUSE I WASN’T ASHAMED OF WHAT I WAS DOING. WAKING UP AT 3 IN THE MORNING LEAVING WORK AT 4 pm TO GO TO SCHOOL AT 5 CONE BACK HOME AT 10 AND DO IT ALL AGAIN FOR 6 DAYS A WEEK. I DIDNT SELL DRUGS, PROSTITUTE MYSELF, DIDN’T STEAL. ITS SO SAD AND PAINFUL TO SEE ALL THESE PEOPLE SAY THE THINGS THEY DO BACAUSE I WAS ONCE IN A PLACE WHERE EVERYONE WAS AGAINST ME AND NO MATTER HOW MANY STEPS FORWARD I WAS TAKING I ALWAYS SEEMED TO TAKE TWICE AS MANY BACK. TODAY I THANK GOD FOT GIVING ME THE STRENGTH TO GO THROUGH ALL I DID BECAUSE IT HAS MADE ME VALUE THE POWER OF A CAR, A SSN, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY IM GLAD I DON’T HAVE TO HIDE FROM ANY COP THINKING THEY WOULD SEPARATE ME AND MY FAMILY.

    Juliana you have said at all. I also came to this great country the same way in 1953 and my mother had to work in two places in order for us to survive in this country. We never up to this day have not even asked for a penny from the government or any one else. I was 13 years old went to school left this country to immigrate came back continue with my education got married had two children started worked at Chevron Oil Co., left after 25 years of service because they moved to another state was asked to go with them unable to accept due to my husbands job stay home home for about a 1 1/2 started working again in Mercury Insurance Company SAVED MONEY and retired early. All the years that we have lived in this country up until now we have paid taxes in food, home, cars etc., and we have not used WELFARE as most generations do since they know that by having lots of children they get help from the govermnet or from all of us that pay takes. I forgot to let you know that I also studied to become a citizen so I can vote and get rid of all those policiticans that are following the same habits as politicians of the latin american. VIVA USA AND MAY GLAD BLESS AMERICAN

    I just want to know if this a good way to save up to start a family. My uncle did this and made a very good amount after two years. Does anyone know how this actually turns out with this bank?

    People that access this website are obviously looking for guidance on how to invest their money with the possibility of increasing their gains. We are all human beings, and at the end of the day, we all originated from the same parents. This world would be a better world if we all dignify each other by utilizing upbuilding words and not demoralizing each other by our inner self hatred. I think everyone ultimately wants the best for their families, and that being said, will search for ways to improve their lifes by searching for viable investments. If you don’t find a suitable answer on this website, just keep searching and asking questions until you feel that your research has satisfied your uncertainties. Keep searching, love life, reject hatred!

    Likewise, people who have degrees in social work will find ample opportunities
    in the different non-governmental organizations (NGOs). They could be involved in budgeting,
    cost management, evaluation, and strategic planning.

    This is then used to calculate how much tax you are required to pay and how
    much you have to contribute towards National Insurance.
