Top CD and Savings Account Rates at KeySource Commercial Bank in North Carolina


KeySource Commercial Bank

KeySource Commercial Bank is offering competitive rates on its mid-term and long-term CD rates. Some of the best rates include 3.00% APY for 5-years, 2.00% APY for 2-years and 1.75% APY for 18-months. It also has a good deal on a savings account with a 1.50% APY. These rates are listed at the bank's rates page as of 9/16/2010.

The savings account is called the Blue Savings Account. Some important features of the account include:

  • Minimum of $100 to open an account in person or $5,000 when opening online
  • Up to three withdrawals per month (no excess withdrawal fee with balances of $2,500 or higher)
  • No monthly fee with a $300 minimum daily balance

There's an online application, and I can't find any limitations about out-of-state applicants. I've just sent an email to see if it's available nationwide. Even if it's available nationwide, it's unlikely this high rate will hold. The savings rate may change at anytime, and as we have seen at other banks offering nationwide savings accounts, rates rarely stay on top for long. Update: I received a reply from the bank, and according to the bank rep, people in any state can apply online. They can only accept up to $10,000 through the account opening portal as an Electronic Transfer from another institution. So if you choose to fund more than that you can either mail the bank a check or contact the bank for wiring instructions.

How about early withdrawal penalties on the 5 year CD?

As of September 17, 2012, Keysource Commercial Bank is gone.  They have been merged into the Bank of North Carolina.  I suspect that their top-tier interest rates will disappear.
