The 18-month and 24-month CD Specials are the most competitive, but the 6-month rate isn’t too shabby.

It took a little hunting, but I did find the CD Specials on the Bank’s website, and was able to confirm everything mentioned in the Chicago Tribune ad.

According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for any of CD Specials is “just three months compounded interest.”

Thanks to the DA reader who sent me these latest CD Specials offered by Evergreen Bank Group. Keep reading the Chicago Tribune!

Qualifying Requirements

  • Have at least 12 debit card purchases.
  • Enroll in and receive eStatements.

The APY only ranks eighth when compared to other Reward Checking Accounts available in Illinois with minimum qualifying balances of at least $15k. But not having a Direct Deposit requirement makes this Kasasa Cash account that more attractive.

The Kasasa Cash account has no monthly service or minimum balance requirement, but does require a minimum $100 opening deposit. Unlimited domestic ATM fees will be reimbursed each month, if the qualifying requirements are met. Individual ATM fees of $5 or higher require a receipt for reimbursement. There is a limit of one Kasasa Cash account per Social Security number.

Availability

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

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

Someday I would like to visit the Hinsdale (Grant Square) branch and try out the indoor golf simulator.
