I was a customer of this bank quite a few years ago.  I found it a good bank back then.  They treated me right, and I always appreciated their high level of service.  So, unless things have changed (it's possible), I recommend this bank.

As for this particular deal, you will have to decide on your own if it is attractive.

I had a 2 year CD at this bank before the 2008 near meltdown.  When the CD was up for renewal in 2010, the rate was just barely above 1%, so I just cashed it out.  The renewal rate was below the best rates offered at the time.  So it went from being among the best rates to among the worst rates.
