CFBank (Ohio) Ups Money Market Special


Deal Summary: Money Market Savings Special, 2.30% APY ($25k min), 2.00% APY ($10k min), 12 month rate guarantee, new accounts/new money.

Availability: Akron, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Columbus metro areas and Columbia County, Ohio.

CFBank is again promoting its Money Market Savings Special (MMSS). Unlike the previous MMSS offered in June, the current special features two APYs, 2.30% and 2.00%, which are based on deposit levels of $25k and $10k, respectively. In addition, the rate guarantee period has doubled to 12 months. The guaranteed introductory rate only applies to new accounts opened with new money. If the balance should fall below the opening minimum, it will earn the standard Money Market rate of 0.01% APY.

While the MMSS has no monthly service fee, there is a $10 monthly low balance fee should the balance fall below $5k. If the MMSS is closed within 90 days of opening, there is a $25 early closure penalty.

CD Specials

CFBank is also offering three CD Specials with so-so rates. The minimum opening deposit is $5k, with no stated balance cap.


Headquartered in the Columbus suburb of Worthington, CFBank’s market area includes four of Ohio’s largest metropolitan areas (Akron, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Columbus) and Columbia County.

Opening a Money Market Savings Special or a CD Special requires an in-person visit to any of six full-service Ohio branches located in Calcutta, Fairlawn, Glendale, Wellsville, Woodmere, and Worthington.

CFBank also has a Contact Us form to begin the application process.
