Pacific Global Bank is offering a CD promotion with some very competitive rates. These include a 3.28% APY for 9-12 month terms and 3.50% APY for 24-36 month terms. Minimum deposit is $5,000 with new funds. Checking account is required. This special doesn't seem to be listed on the bank's website. I emailed the bank yesterday about this special, and I received their reply today (2/12/09). The promotion is subject to change at any time.
A branch visit appears to be required. The bank has three branches located in Chicago, IL.
The bank has some strong ratings for safety and soundness: 4 stars (excellent) at BauerFinancial and 4 stars (sound) at Bankrate.com. Both ratings are based on 9/30/08 financial data. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1995 (FDIC Certificate # 34089).
