5.55% 5-Month CD at a South Carolina Bank (First Federal)

POSTED ON BY

First Federal has a "Rock Star Special" at their Hilton Head and Bluffton, SC branches on March 5th to 9th. The special includes a 5.55% APY 5-month certificate of deposit with a minimum deposit of $1,000. Also, the first 5 new checking account customers in each branch will receive a iPod shuffle. The special is not listed at the bank's website. A reader mentioned this deal in the comments, and I called for additional information.

Refer to the bank's locator page for details about these branches. The bank is FDIC insured.

Thanks to the reader who mentioned this special.

Went in about 11 this morning to open a CD thinking the Ipods were long gone. Much to my surprise two remained at the branch on the crcle at HY 278. Opened a free old fart checking account with free checks (min deposit of $50). Can close out the checking account at any time as I have my Ipod.

Should be many remaining Ipods over the next 4 days.

Have a great day and a great life.
