Certificate Accounts 

Checking and savings accounts are what we use to spend and manage our money, but neither does much to make your money grow. Consider a certificate account if you have at least $1,000 or more that you won’t need for a set amount of time. A certificate is a great way to earn a better guaranteed return on your money.
