2.65% 15-Month CD at WashingtonFirst Bank in the DC Metro Area - Local Only


WashingtonFirst Bank is offering a special 15-month CD with a 2.65% APY. Minimum deposit is $10,000. This special is listed at the bottom right of the bank's home page as of 7/07/09. According to the small print, the APY is accurate as of July 6, 2009 so hopefully it'll last for a while. There's also a competitive 18-month IRA CD listed in the bank's deposit rates page as of 7/07/09.

It appears a branch visit is required to open an account. Branches are located in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia.

The bank has fair ratings for safety and soundness: 3 stars (performing) at and 3½ stars (good) at BauerFinancial. Both ratings are based on 3/31/09 financial data. The bank has been a FDIC member since 2004 (FDIC Certificate # 57696).

Thanks to the reader who mentioned this special in the daily news and deals post.
