First Republic Bank is advertising (LA Times today) an unusual "7 Month Liquid CD." Most "liquid" CDs allow you to add $, and some allow one withdrawal. This CD has no penalty fees when you space withdrawals at least 7 days apart. You must maintain the minimum $10,000 balance, but the maximum opening balance is $500,000. The APY is only 5.20%, so you could stuff a lot of money here and build a CD ladder by moving it out weekly to higher rate CDs, or use this as a parking place for funds if you need to be liquid at some uncertain future date.
One catch: you must withdraw the money in person. Their offices are mainly in California, but they do have offices in New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Nevada, Oregon & Washington.
APY = 5.45% for $1,000 - $9,999 APY = 5.60% for $10,000+
The Quick Summary has been updated.

Superior Savings of New England no longer offers the 6-month 5.60% CD, so it has been removed from the Quick Summary.

7% is one of the best I've seen if you can qualify:
AA Credit Union (membership restricted to those in transportation industry and family members of employees): Product: 777 Duration: 12 Months Div Rate: 6.83% APY: 7.00%* (see below for further restrictions) Min/Max: $1,000/$7,000

I've updated the rates for Fremont I&L -- the 3-months are down, but the 6, 9 & 12-months are steady or up.
Yes, the Fremont mortgage unit is in trouble, but accounts in the I&L unit are FDIC insured.

Vineyard Bank in Southern California is offering a 5.5% "Flex" CD to California residents. No, I'd never heard of it either, but BankRate gives it 4 stars (5 is best) and a "safe&sound" rating of 2 (1 is best, 5 is worst). The offer is valid through June 8, 2007. I couldn't find a place on their web site to apply and will update if/when I get an answer to my email. They have several branches throughout SoCal, but their only NoCal branch is in San Rafael.
Details: Customer may choose the term from any of the Bank’s existing published terms from 1-month up to 1-year. [Minimum deposit is $10,000] A maximum of $95,000 may be deposited for single product households. If a Vineyard Bank checking, savings or money market is opened in conjunction with the Flex Time Deposit, the deposit maximum increases to $5,000,000. After the first seven days, a one time withdraw of up to 50% of the original balance is allowed as long as a minimum of $10,000.00 is maintained for the remaining term of the CD. This promotion may end of change at any time without prior notice. Early withdrawal penalties may apply. Offer applies to California residents only.
Edit: the special is over, but I thought I'd update for future reference: I got an email answer to my question on the 8th (the last day the offer was open). The CD had to be opened in person at a branch ("know your customer"), but after that transactions could be handled by mail.

World Savings is advertising (Orange County [CA] Register) an 8-month CD at 5.32% APR / 5.46% APY. Not great, but it shows rates are coming up a little.
This is branch-only, $10,000 minimum but it needn't be new money.
Check their interactive web site to see what is available in your zip code. (By the way, they've previously told me you don't need to reside in that zip code, just get the CD from a branch within the zip code.)
Edit: see also discussion in BankDeals today June 22nd.

Wachovia is advertising (in the Orange County Register) a 6-month CD paying 5.46% APY. "If you're a new or existing Wachovia personal checking customer, you can lock in this rate with a $5,000 minimum CD."
There's nothing abiout this CD on their web site (at least using NoCal and SoCal zip codes), so the only way to find out about it is to "stop by a Wachovia Financial Center or call 800-WACHOVIA 800-922-4684."
I haven't bothered to call because I have enough checking accounts already. Anyone who finds out more info, please post.
Edit: see BankDeals (July 11th) for more information.

The Golden 1 Credit Union is once again offering a 5-Year-CD at 6.00% APY... LINK.
You can check eligibility requirements here, or call them at 877 Golden 1.
FWIW, I opened a Cd with them the last time they offered the 5 year, 6% CD (about 2 years ago), and have had no problems with them whatsoever.
They also have a 9-Month-CD at 5.50%

WaMu's 10-month "Traditional CD" (for California, YMMV) has a 4.89% APR / 5.0% APY if you put in at least $10,000 (you can get a 10-month CD for less, but it pays 4.65% APR / 4.75% APY).
However -- if you are in CA, CT, NY or NJ you can get a 10-month 5.45% APY CD "with a little slot on its back where more money goes in" (cute, huh?). The minimum balance is $1,000 and it has to be new money.
You can add money any time you want ($100 minimum add-on deposit) but your total add-ons can only be as high as your initial balance. If you open one, find out if the add-ons have to be new money also, then come back and report.
Drawbacks: you can only open the CD at a branch or by calling 1-800-808-1396 -- there's no internet application. And you need to have a WaMu checking account.
This CD with Add-On Feature is not on the WaMu web site. It was advertised in today's Orange County (CA) Register.
Edit: according to BankDeals, the CD is also available in Oregon and Washington, and the offer ends August 2nd.
Now I can't decide if I want to pull my money out of FNBO now or if I should wait until FNBO's offer ends in September.
Membership in Clackamas Federal Credit Union is open to all persons who live, work, worship or attend school in Clackamas County, Oregon.

I've updated a few of the CDs in the Quick Summary - you might notice that Fremont I&S rates have fallen below 5% - I left them in hoping that the rates would go up again so I wouldn't have to retype. I also updated First Republic and La Jolla Banks.
I started updating Indy Mac and Virtual Bank but they're available to all -- is it worth keeping nationwide unrestricted CDs in the list?

Vineyard Bank has a new Flex CD for California residents with a $1,000 minimum balance: 6-month, 1-year or 2-year CDs at 5.26% APR / 5.40% APY.
First Republic Bank's Liquid CD is now a 5-month CD at 5.25% APY for California residents. See my post above for terms.
Note: this is very much YMMV. I was shown this rate when plugging in NoCal and SoCal zip codes, but not OR or WA zips (although theywere not Portland & Seattle zips). So check the First Republic web site for your area if you are interested in this CD as a short-term parking place for your cash.

For VA, MD, DC FW members: FidelityandTrustBank has a 9month CD special for 5.75APY. Minimum deposit is $1000.00 You can open a CD w/o being a member of the bank. There is no online option afaik. The bank has its branches in MD, VA and DC. Link
