3.90% 12-Month CD & 3.50% 6-Month CD at Frontier Bank in WA & OR

POSTED ON BY

Update 2/12/09: The CD rates have fallen. Please check the bank's website for the latest rates.

Frontier Bank is listing a competitive CD promotion. It includes a 3.90% APY 12-month CD and a 3.50% APY 6-month CD. The 3.90% APY requires a $50,000 minimum deposit. For a $25,000 minimum, the 1-year APY is 3.80%, and for a $500 minimum, it's 3.70%. The 6-month 3.50% CD requires a $500 minimum. These rates are listed in the CD special page (pdf) that's linked on the bank's front page as of 1/22/2009. They're also listed in the bank's rate page (pdf). The 1-year CD rates are available in an IRA and are listed in the CD IRA rate table as of 1/22/2009.

It appears a branch visit is required to open accounts. Branches are located throughout Washington State including the cities of Port Angeles, Vancouver, Seattle, Redmond, Bremerton, Tacoma, Mount Vernon and Everett. There are also branches in the Oregon cities of Salem and Portland.

Frontier Bank has some fair ratings for soundness: 3 stars (adequate) at BauerFinancial and 3 stars (performing) at Bankrate.com. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1978 (FDIC Certificate # 22710).
