Unlike the majority of banks throughout the country, Capitol Federal Savings Bank (Cap Fed) will be open on Presidents’ Day (February 15, 2016). On this Federal Holiday that honors all U.S. Presidents, Cap Fed is offering three President’s Day CD Specials for only one day: 16-month CD (1.05% APY), 28-month CD (1.50% APY), 51-month CD (2.30% APY). Of the three, the 51-month CD Special is the most competitive.
The CD Specials all require a minimum deposit of $1K, with no balance cap. The fine print on the Promotional Page states:
Personal, retirement and personal trust account deposits only.
Retirement accounts limited to 2015 and/or 2016 annual IRA contributions only.
IRA rollovers, renewals, transfers and endorsements NOT eligible.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for any of the three CD Specials is 180 days interest.
Many thanks to DA reader, Carpline, for posting this deal in the Forum.
Opening the Presidents’ Day CD Special can be opened with an in-person visit of any of Capitol Federal Savings Bank’s Kansas or Missouri branches, or by mail (snail mail, not e-mail). If you chose the mail option, your letter must be received on or before February 15, 2016, and it will be opened only on that date.
Note: as February 15, 2016, is a Federal holiday, there will be no mail service, so for all practical purposes, any mail requests have to be received by February 13, 2016.
Cap Fed has 47 Kansas branches located in Andover, Derby, Emporia, Gardner, Kansas City, Lawrence (4), Leawood, Lenexa, Manhattan (2), Mission, Olathe (3), Overland Park (7), Prairie Village (2), Salina, Shawnee (3), Topeka (7), and Wichita (6), and four Missouri branches located in Liberty and Kansas City (3).

Headquartered in Topeka, Kansas, Capitol Federal Savings Bank is a leader in residential lending in Kansas and Missouri, with assets in excess of $9 Billion. Cap Fed was originally chartered in 1893 as the Savings and Loan Association of Topeka. It would be impossible to summarize Cap Fed’s 123-year history in a few sentences, but a common thread that runs through Cap Fed’s history is that of longevity, in both serving the community and retention of employees. The best example of this is Henry A. Bubb, who was hired in 1926 as an office boy, and at the time of his death in 1989, was Bank Chairman.
