Northwest Savings Bank is having a grand opening special at its three new branches in Rochester, New York. The special offers an especially good deal on a personal savings account with 2.25% APY guaranteed through 11/16/2010. Minimum balance is $100, and the maximum is $250,000 per account. A checking account is required, otherwise the rate falls to 2.00% APY. The offer is scheduled to expire on 11/16/2009.
This special doesn't seem to be listed at the bank's website. A reader mentioned this in the comments and referenced this FW thread which has details from FW member cga who reported to have opened this last week.
