Security Bank Of Texas Rate Cuts

Thursday, September 1, 2011 - 5:50 PMSecurity Bank - Details
Hate being bearer of bad news, but Security Bank of texas cut its RCA rate to 2.97% from 3.23% and Real saver to 1.47% from 1.83. I just opened an account with them and am disappointed :(

They seem to cut rate at 0.26% at a time to soften the blow.  But lowering rate on a monthly basis (8/1, 9/1, ...) is concerning.

@saagar No worries... there was an early heads up about the change on 8/24 from an anonymous poster:

The gradual decrease in the rates has disappointed me as well.   The 2.97%APY is still worthwhile and at least the required number of transactions is very manageable.  DA's bank alert feature is useful for staying informed on news about this institution.
