I called the bank yesterday, and was informed by the CSR that they require a branch visit for opening CDs. They also offer a reward checking account which currently pays 3.51% APY for balances up to $50K. Unlike CDs, you can apply online from any state to open this reward checking account (see post).

Branches are located in the Florida Panhandle cities of Fort Walton Beach, Destin and Mary Esther.

The bank's ratings for safety and soundness are weak: 2 stars (problematic) at BauerFinancial and 1 star (lowest) at Both ratings are based on 12/31/08 financial data. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1948 (FDIC Certificate # 16748).
