This is a spectacular deal because of the very low, $500, permitted opening deposit.  You open for $500 now and then a year or eighteen months (or whatever feels right) from now you add on $249,400 (or whatever you have) if rates have remained low between now and then.  If rates rise, you just let the account run with the original $500 and add nothing.  This is very cheap insurance which might lock in a high rate, short term CD in future.  And if not, the cost to try is very low.
