Washington Federal Bank for Savings
Washington Federal Bank for Savings is offering a special 2.65% APY 13-month CD. This requires that you also open their savings account with a $250 minimum deposit. The current savings account rate is 1% APY. Without the savings account, the CD rate falls to 2.40% APY. Minimum CD deposit is $1,000. This promotion doesn't seem to be listed at the bank's website. A reader commented on this, and I just called to confirm that it's still available as of the morning of 5/28/09. The CSR didn't know how much longer it would last.

The offer is only for local residents. The bank has two branches in Chicago, Illinois.
