One could think of CDs as one of the best money-back guarantees. Simply pick the term to deposit your funds and earn dividends that are higher than regular savings. There are no risks, no stocks to watch — just a guaranteed, fixed-rate return with federal insurance. CDs can be used to diversify investing or to save for a specific goal without the temptation to spend.
