2.53% Money Market Account at Castle Rock Bank in Minnesota - Local Only


Castle Rock Bank is offering very competitive rates on its money market and savings account. The Money Market Demand Account has a rate of 2.53% APY on balances above $10,000 and 2.02% APY below. Minimum deposit is $1,000 with a $3/month fee if the balance falls below $1,000. According to the website, transfers and withdrawals must be a minimum of $500.
