Just saw a 10 year CD @ 2.25% posted up inside a Chase Branch in San Francisco.  Lord help us if 10 years from now, someone that opens one of those is still happy with that decision.  Did not see the penalties

#1    I rarely buy my CDs from Chase since they have always had, imo, a steep EWP.  I just called them about the 10 year CD to see if it has changed.  I was told it is $25.00 plus 3% of the amount withdrawn.  This would amount to about $775.00 if one purchases a $25,000.00 CD and needs to withdraw the entire CD at any time.  I think that is steep for going out for 10 years and only getting back 2.25%.

Chase is apparently following Bank of America's lead with the 3% of the withdrawal amount $25 EWP.   I hope other institutions won't follow suit.
