My last post on Banner Bank was in April when they had a 2.75% 15-month CD special.
Banner Bank's ratings for safety and soundness are weak: 2 stars (problematic) at BauerFinancial and 1 star (lowest) at Bankrate.com. Both ratings are based on 3/31/09 financial data. The bank has been FDIC insured since 1934 (FDIC Certificate # 28489).
