More States Eligible for Frontier Bank’s Top Reward Checking Account
Frontier Bank (IA)

Last year when I first reported on the reward checking account at Frontier Bank, the online application allowed residents of three states to apply. Its online application now allows residents of 12 midwestern states to apply. This gives many more people access to a very competitive reward checking account. The reward checking is under the Kasasa brand, and it’s called Kasasa Cash. As of 3/18/2014, the account has a 3.05% APY on balances up to $20K if typical reward checking monthly requirements are met. There’s also a Kasasa Saver account...

Competitive 5-Year CD Rate at Bank of the West in Some States
Bank of the West

Update 5/25/2012: The 5-year Premium Money Market CD rate has fallen. According to the CSR, it's now 1.65% APY (down from 1.80% APY on 5/11). This is for California. Rates may vary for other states.

It's not common to find competitive CD rates at large brick-and-mortar banks, but I found one at Bank of the West. It's offering a 2.00% APY 5-year CD. This is the bank's Premium Money Market CD which requires a $2,500 minimum deposit. The rate isn't listed online, and it may vary by state. I called the...

Bonus Details are listed in this Bank of the West promotions page. The checking account must be opened by 4/27/2012.

If you decide to give this promotion a try,...

Tecumseh Federal Bank has a very competitive rate for its two long-term CDs. Its 6-year and 8-year CDs have a 3.03% APY. It's one of the few banks that lists a 6-year CD but no 5-year CD. The shorter terms are not quite as competitive. The 4-year CD has a 1.76% APY and the 30-month CD has a 1.26% APY. Minimum deposit is $500. These rates are listed at the bank's rates sheet as of 1/16/2012. There's an October date at the top of the sheet, so I emailed the...

Bank of the West has just started a new checking account promotion with a $100 bonus that's scheduled to last until 9/16/2011. Here's the link to the offer.
