Availability: Chicago metropolitan area

A DA reader who regularly e-mails me about Chicago area bank deals, recently let me know about Evergreen Bank Group’s (EBG) latest specials, which had been advertised in the Chicago Tribune. The product with the most competitive rate is the 20-month CD Special, which earns 2.40% APY. This limited-time offer requires new money, with a minimum deposit of $10k and a maximum deposit of $249,999.

According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for the 20-month CD Special is “just three months compounded interest.”

It took a bit of searching on EGB’s website, but I eventually found the Specials page. Everything mentioned in the Chicago Tribune ad lines up with what’s on the website.

Money Market Special

EBG is also offering a Money Market Special, with a one year rate guarantee of 1.55% APY on balances of $25k+. Qualifying for the 1.55% APY requires a minimum initial deposit of $25k of new money.

On Day 366 following account opening,

this offering will reprice to our current Cornerstone Money Market rates, current ongoing APYs and tiers are: 0.65% for accounts $25,000 and up; 0.40 % for accounts $10,000 - $24,999; 0.30% for accounts $2,500 - $9,999.99; 0.00% for account balances under $2,500.00.

Thanks to the Chicagoland DA reader for letting me know about the latest Evergreen Bank Group Specials. Keep reading the Chicago Tribune!


Headquartered in Oak Brook, Illinois, Evergreen Bank Group’s primary market area is the Chicago metropolitan area, better known as “Chicagoland.”

The CD Specials and Money Market Special can be opened at any of the three suburban Chicago branches, which are located in Evergreen Park, Hinsdale, and Oak Brook.

I still want to visit the Hinsdale (Grant Square) branch and try out the indoor golf simulator.
