Great Banking Experience

I had a great experience with Investar Bank, opening a checking account with a .60% interest rate and also with a 6 month CD.  Very friendly and helpful staff.

As of 2/10/13 they are offering 24 month CD @ 1.10%, 18 month CD @ .80% and a 3,6,9, or 12 month CD @ .75%

Some of the best rates in the Baton Rouge area.
