Depending on the state of the current yield curve, 1 year term deposits often have some relatively high interest rates available, without the need to lock in your money for an exceedingly long time.

It's important to compare products and understand how your bank calculates and pays the interest earned in order to fully optimize your earning potential. Interest can be paid on 'maturity' either monthly, semi-annually or annually. So make note of the nominal interest rate (the advertised rate) and the effective interest rate (the actual interest rate including compounding effect of payment frequency) as the more frequent your interest is paid, the more your savings will grow. For example, $10,000 invested for one year with interest calculated daily and paid monthly will earn noticeably more in interest than if interest were calculated monthly and paid annually.
