This bank often seems to offer competitive 9-month CD specials. My last post on this bank was on July 2008 when it was offering a 4% 9-month CD.
Note, at the bottom of the rate table it states that deposits are accepted at their discretion. So they may only accept local deposits. Branches are located in Philadelphia and Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania.
