SolutionsBank is offering a special 5.59% APY certificate of deposit with terms of 9, 10, 11 and 12 months. The minimum deposit is $10,000. It doesn't seem to be listed at the bank's website. A reader emailed me info on this based on an ad on page D5 of Sunday's Kansas City Star paper. I just called their Overland Park branch (913-851-1000) for further information. No checking account is required. A branch visit is required at one of their Kansas City metro area branches.
The bank is FDIC insured (FDIC Certificate # 4731).
Thanks to the reader who emailed me info on this CD.
