Availability: Market area covers New Jersey.

More than two years ago, Bogota Savings Bank began offering some of its CDs online, with different APYs for in-branch and online openings. While the pattern seemed to be higher rates for online CDs, Bogota Savings Bank is currently offering an in-branch 27-month CD (1.55% APY), with its online counterpart earning 1.45% APY. The minimum deposit is $1k, with no balance cap.

Bogota Savings Bank also has a 48-month CD (2.00% APY) that is only available in-branch. Like the 27-month CD, it requires a minimum deposit of $1k, with no balance.

Both the 27- and 48-month CDs are available as IRAs (Traditional) earning the same APYs, with the same funding requirements.

According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty on the 27-month CD is 180 days simple interest, and 270 days simple interest for the 48-month CD.

Short-Term CDs

Last November, I wrote about two short-term CDs being offered by Bogota Savings Bank. The good news is that the 6-month CD (1.00% APY) and the 13-month CD (1.25% APY) are both still available and can be opened online or in-branch.
