5.40% 7-Month CD at Wachovia Texas


Wachovia Bank
Wachovia is offering a promotional 5.40% APY 7-month certificate of deposit. It's only available to those in Texas. The minimum is $5,000 for regular CDs or $2,000 for a CD IRA. It requires that you have a new or existing checking account. This special is not listed at Wachovia's website. It was advertised in today's Dallas Morning News. The ad is available online here. I called and confirmed that this is only available for those in Texas.

Wachovia still has a $50 checking account bonus for its free checking account. This promotion will be ending on 4/1/07. Please refer to my Wachovia checking bonus post for more info. Since the free checking account qualifies for the 5.40% CD, I would think you should be able to open this first and then qualify for the CD.

This CD is not as good as Wachovia's 5.75% California special which ended last week, but the 5.40% rate is competitive.
