INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS

Add-on's or add-in's to a certificate of deposit are beneficial when investors feel interest rates will decline. By having this feature, the bearer of the CD will be guaranteed a minimum interest rate return.

Most financial institutions that permit the use of an add-on feature will require these additional deposits to meet a minimum dollar amount (typically $500).
