Rhinebeck Bank ended last week by adding a 14-month CD Special, which earns 2.95% APY. While some of Rhinebeck Bank long-term CDs have tiered APYs ($2k and $10k minimums), the 14-month CD Specials earns the same APY for all deposits of $2k and above.
The 14-month CD is also offered as an IRA (Traditional, Roth, CESA), earning the same APY with the same funding requirements.
While Rhinebeck Bank offers a Premium Rate on CDs with a Rhinebeck Bank Priority Select or Priority Elite Checking account relationship, the fine print on the CD Rates page states,
14-month CD promotion is not eligible for Premium Rate.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for the 14-month CD Special is three months interest.
