Lakeside Bank has several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Lakeside Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider looking elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. Lakeside Bank's CD rates are fair compared to other U.S. banks.
