The Los Angeles Times is currently running an advertisement for two promotional CDs being offered by Pacific Premier Bank: a 14-month CD (1.25% APY) and 20-month CD (1.30% APY). The minimum opening deposit is $10K, with no maximum balance cap.
These two limited-time CDs are not listed on Pacific Premier Bank’s website at this time. Previous Pacific Premier Bank ads have clearly stated the end date for limited time CDs, but there’s not one listed on this particular ad. CSR did not have any specific information concerning an end date, but stated that promotional CDs are typically available for approximately a month.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for the 14-month CD is 180 days interest, and 365 days interest for the 20-month CD.
Many thanks to the long-time DA reader in Los Angeles for letting me know about these CDs.
