Community Bank and Trust is offering a special 6.00% APY 15-month certificate of deposit. The minimum deposit is $500. It's also available as an IRA CD. This special isn't listed at the bank's website. A reader had emailed me this, and I called for additional info.
The service rep didn't know how much longer this would last. It started in mid February. I was told that they require a branch visit to open this CD. It seems to be available at most of their branches, but be sure to call your local branch to confirm. Branches are located in several cities of Georgia, including Cornelia, Cleveland, Clayton, Toccoa, Gainesville, Commerce, Athens and Columbus. There are also branches in Alabama cities of Montgomery, Union Springs and Prattville.
The bank has been FDIC insured since 1934.
