A CD or Certificate of Deposit will earn a bit more money than a savings account. You get interest rates from 2.5 to 4% or so depending on the bank but you must invest a certain amount of money (between $500 for the smallest interest rate and 100k for the higher rate) for a defined period of time. You get a penalty for early withdrawal.

Your bank's website should have more specific information.
