It does if it is your emergency stash. Put half of the emergency stash in the CD and the other half in the checking account. This way you are diversified and have access to half. The other half, at this point all hell has broken loose, will either be ready when you need it or you can then put the money on a 0% card or take a penalty and remove from the CD.
