Two Hot CD Specials at First State Bank of Illinois - EXPIRED


Update: I'm afraid these specials don't last long these days. The rates page has been updated, and the specials are no longer listed.

First State Bank of Illinois is offering two CD specials with very competitive rates: 2.00% APY for 9 months and 2.50% APY for 18 months. Minimum deposit is $5,000. These specials are listed at the bottom of the bank's rates page as of 5/07/2010.

It appears that a branch visit is required to open an account. Branches are located in the Illinois cities of Wheaton, Carthage, Colusa, Hamilton, La Harpe, Blandinsville, Macomb and Monmouth.

The bank's ratings for safety and soundness are a little above average: 3½ stars (good) at BauerFinancial, 3 stars (performing) at and 4 out of 5 overall health score at (see First State Bank rates and reviews page).

I don't see those rates posted on their website. I see 1.72% for their 18 month CD with 50K .

I just called and the promotional rates were discontinued a few days ago.
