Florida Community Bank Has Limited-Time 9-Month CD

POSTED ON BY

Availability: Florida

Earlier this month, I wrote about Florida Community Bank’s (FCB) four-month guaranteed 1.20% APY promotional rate on its Personal and Personal High Yield Money Market accounts.

Yesterday, an advertisement appeared in the Miami Herald (and several other Florida newspapers) for FCB’s latest promotion, a 9-month CD (1.40% APY). The minimum opening deposit is $1k of new money, with a balance cap of $500k.

This promotional rate is available to first time FCB checking account customers who open an FCB checking account with a minimum $500 deposit. Any of FCB’s six checking accounts qualify for this promotion.

If you choose not to open a new FCB checking account, or already have one, the 9-month CD is being offered at a slightly lower APY of 1.30%, but the funding requirements are the same.

According to CSR, this promotion will expire at the end of June 2016. CSR also stated that the Early Withdrawal Penalty is one month’s interest, and interest accrues monthly.

Many thanks to both DA reader, Kirkland, for his Forum post about the 9-month CD promotion, and the DA reader who emailed me about his experience opening the 9-month CD this morning.

Availability

Headquartered in Weston, Florida Community Bank promotes itself as "being the pre-eminent Florida Based, Florida Focused Bank."

Opening an account at FCB requires an in-person visit to any of 50 Florida branches located along both coasts, from Naples to Sarasota, and Miami to Daytona Beach. According to CSR, the 9-month CD promotional rate offer is available at all branch locations.

At this time, FCB’s online banking capabilities are limited to account management and bill payment services.
