3.25% 7-Month CD at CoreFirst Bank & Trust in Kansas City - Local Only


CoreFirst Bank & Trust
CoreFirst Bank & Trust has a hot CD promotion at its Kansas City branch. They're offering a 3.25% APY 7-month CD. Minimum deposit is $5,000. There's no maximum, and there's no checking requirement. This special isn't listed at the bank's website. A reader emailed me info on this, and I just called the bank's KC branch for details. A branch visit is necessary. The CSR didn't know how much longer this might last. I recommend calling to confirm the special before traveling to the branch. It's the Shawnee branch in KC.

The bank is still offering some competitive special CDs at all of its branches. I posted on these last month. These specials include a 2.65% APY CD for terms of 3 to 12 months and a 2.70% APY 21-month CD. The regular 24-month CD with a 3.10% APY is actually a better deal than the special 21-month CD. These rates are listed at the bank's CD rate table as of 6/18/09.

A branch visit is required to open an account. Branches are located in the Kansas cities of Topeka, Emporia, Manhattan and Kansas City, and in Denver, Colorado.

The bank has respectable ratings for safety and soundness: 4 stars (excellent) at BauerFinancial (based on 3/31/09 data) and 3 stars (performing) at (based on 12/31/08 data). The bank has been a FDIC member since 1959 (FDIC Certificate # 18100).

Thanks to the reader who emailed me info on this special.
