BankUnited isn't listing this CD special on its website, but a reader emailed me news about it. I just called for additional details. It's only available at the bank's new branch in Lake Mary Florida. BankUnited has just started a presence in Central Florida. There's also a new branch in Casselberry, but I haven't checked with them about new-branch specials.
Below are the details:
- 1.05% APY 6-month CD
- minimum deposit: $25,000
- No maximum deposit
- No checking requirement
- new-branch special at: 4406 W. Lake Mary Blvd Lake Mary, FL 32746 (phone: 407-548-3660)
- Available as of 8/27/2012. CSR wasn't sure when it may end
- Branch visit required. CSR said they would accept non-locals who come into the branch.
If you see a new bank or credit union branch, be sure to check for new-branch specials. They are common! And if you find they are offering specials, please post on them here!
