Deal Summary: CD Specials – 13-month (2.75% APY), 24-month (2.85% APY), $10k minimum.
A long-time DA reader emailed me about two CD Specials currently being offered by Affiliated Bank – a 12-month (2.75% APY) and a 24-month (2.85% APY). While the CD Specials are not listed on the Bank’s website, I did find an advertisement for the CD Specials in the July 29 edition of the Austin American Statesman. According to the advertisement, and confirmed by CSR, a $10k minimum opening deposit is required and there are no stated balance caps.
CSR stated the CD Specials were available at least through the end of this week, but there was no guarantee how long they would be offered.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for either CD Specials is 90 days interest on the amount being withdrawn.
Headquartered in Bedford, Texas, Affiliated Bank’s market area includes Dallas, Tarrant, and Travis Counties.
Opening a CD Special must be done at any of four Texas branches, located in Arlington, Austin, Bedford, and Garland.
