Special 2-Year CD at North Jersey Community Bank - Local Only


ConnectOne Bank

North Jersey Community Bank is offering a 2-year CD special with two very competitive rates. The highest rate is 2.25% APY which requires an active checking account. Without the checking account, the rate is still very competitive at 2.00% APY. Minimum deposit is $500. The special is listed on the bank's front page as of 2/21/2011.

The small print has the details of the active checking requirement:

Active checking account defined as minimum six transactions per month, direct deposit or online banking with minimum three bills paid online per month.
