Opened a two-year CD online on 05/31/2010, at 2.51%. I sent them a check on 06/08/2010 and it was received by 06/10/2010, but the rates dropped to 2%, then to 1.5% in the meantime for the two-year CD. I was concerned about this, but since they guaranteed the rate to me, everything work out fine. They answered the phone each time I called, which was two phone calls, and answered after 4-5 rings. The customer service representative informed me that my rate at the time of opening the account was good for thirty days, which I got in writing, both in e-mail and regular mail. I informed the service representative that I would write a positive review, because everything went great. Of course, I appreciate the updates that this website has for the best rates at banks and credit unions.
I had a poor experience with this outfit last week. Their 3.56% 6-year CD attracted my attention so I called their LA office last Monday (6/710). By the way, their phone system is just plain horrible as it takes several options to finally get a live person. When I finally do get a person, whose name I'll omit, she states that the rate was still in effect. I tell her that's great and I'll get my check and application (printed from their website) in the mail immediately by priority mail. I do so and it's postmarked that very day. Two days later I get a call back from the same rep saying that the rate has dropped over a full percentage point. Obviously I no longer want the CD, but I inquire why I shouldn't get the promo due to the postmark on my application. She had no good answer. Long story short: This bank wasted my time and is not user friendly.
PS Depositaccounts.com needs to remove Broadway Federal from the 6+ year CD offers. The 3.56% yield is no longer available as of 6/8/10.
