First Republic Bank Offers 33-month CD Special (All Branches)

POSTED ON BY

UPDATE 7/9/15: The 33-month CD Special is no longer available.

Availability: Market area includes Connecticut, California, Florida, Massachusetts, New York, and Oregon

In May, I wrote about First Republic Bank’s 30-month CD Special (1.50% APY); that promotional offer has expired, but First Republic Bank has recently added a 33-month CD Special (1.75% APY).

The minimum opening deposit is $10K, with a $1M maximum balance cap. The 33-month CD Special is available throughout First Republic Bank's market area.

As stated on First Republic Bank’s Consumer Account Disclosure brochure, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:

If we allow you to terminate a CD or make a partial withdrawal of principal prior to its maturity date, we may impose the following penalty on the amount withdrawn: (1) six months’ interest for those CDs with a term of one year or less; and, (2) one year plus three months’ (15 months) interest for those CDs with a term of more than one year.

In my earlier blog, I noted that some First Republic Bank customers had reported they received an instant rate bump of 0.25% when they opened a new checking account in conjunction with opening a CD. I called a couple different branches yesterday and was told that each individual branch has the discretion to offer a rate bump, and the decision was made on a case-by-case basis. It never hurts to ask; you might be pleasantly surprised.

5- and 6-Year CDs

As I mentioned in a blog update, the APYs on First Republic Bank’s 5- and 6-Year CDs were raised to nationally competitive levels in mid-May, and those rates are still in effect today.

How the CD Compares

Given First Republic Bank’s bi-coastal market area, using nationally available CDs makes the best comparison.

The above rates are accurate as of 7/3/2015.
