In Texas, Citibank is advertising a money market promotion with a 3.75% APY guaranteed through 12/31/08 on balances of $25K or more. This was advertised in yesterday's Dallas Morning News. The ad is available online here. The small print for this offer is quite long. The 3.75% APY is considered an accelerated APY. New accounts will automatically qualify for this for the first two statement cycles. After this, one of the following qualifying activities is required each month in a linked checking account in a Citigold Account relationship package: one direct deposit or 2 electronic bill payments totaling at least $25 or 5 signature-based debit card transactions.
Update 9/17/08: Reader has reported seeing this money market special in the Washington, DC metro area. Another reader reported seeing this money market special advertised for the Northeastern states.
Thanks to the readers who mentioned these specials in the finding deals post.
