Money Market Promotion at Community & Southern Bank in Georgia

POSTED ON BY

Community & Southern Bank

Community & Southern Bank has been advertising a promotion for its Investment Money Market Account that’s a good deal. It’s guaranteeing 1.00% APY for the first 180 days the account is opened. Minimum opening and daily balance of $2,500 is required to avoid a monthly service charge of $15. Also, a checking account with monthly direct deposit is required. This special is listed in the bank’s great rates page as of 6/17/2013. Hat tip to the reader who emailed me news of this promotion.

A branch visit appears to be required to open an account. Community & Southern Bank branches are located in the Atlanta metro area and throughout Northern Georgia.

The bank has an overall health score at DepositAccounts.com of 5 stars (out of 5) with a Texas ratio of 18.90% (average) based on March 2013 data. Please refer to our financial overview of Community & Southern Bank for more details. The bank has been a FDIC member since 2010 (FDIC Certificate # 59010).

How This Money Market Promotion Compares

The best money market promotion that’s nationally available is at EverBank which guarantees a 1.10% rate for the first six months for new money market accounts. The downside with this is that the balance cap is $50,000. EverBank also has this same promotion for its checking account which guarantees 1.10% for the first six months, but the balance cap is $100,000. This rate is accurate as of 6/17/2013.

The only posted rates I see are those found on the Great Rates page; so look like these three products are the only ones with posted rates. But I am sure you can get the incof by calling bank or visiting themAlso note that the rate on the over $2,500 tier is only good for first 180 days after account opening; no mention of what happens after that.
