The vast majority of DA readers don’t reside in the area where the offer is available. But it’s still relevant because it shows that the number “6” (as in 6%) exists. And that number represents the benchmark for many in seriously considering a sizable CD investment. Hopefully more to come!

Short term, small bank, branch visit required and small availability area. I wouldn't consider this bank a trend setter.

are these deals usually available to someone who lives in the state and is willing to drive to location to open account? I live in an adjacent county and would be worth the drive.
