Raymond Federal Bank is offering two CD specials with competitive rates. The two best rates are 1.74% APY for a 30-month CD and a 1.26% APY for a 15-month CD. Slightly lower rates are available for smaller deposits. For example, the rates for a $15K deposit are 1.69% APY for 30 months and 1.21% APY for 15 months. These rates are listed in the bank's rates page as of 6/16/2011.
Above the rate table, it states that "IRA accounts are available for all Terms" and that "there is a 90 day interest penalty for early withdrawal". This is a mild penalty for long-term CDs.
