POSTED ON BY

Availability: Southeastern Massachusetts

With Halloween only a few days away, Avon Co-operative Bank (Massachusetts) raised the rate on its 30-month CD (2.05% APY) by a "spook-tacular" 120 basis points. (My apologies - I’ve been waiting all year to use that phrase.)

In the past two years, the 30-month CD has had 12 rate changes, ranging from a low of 0.60% APY in October 2013 to today’s high of 2.05% APY.

The minimum deposit on the 30-month CD is $1K, with no balance cap. The 30-month CD is also available as an IRA (Traditional) earning the same APY and with the same funding requirements.

According to a very helpful CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty is "6 months of interest on the principal withdrawn."
