POSTED ON BY

Deal Summary: 11-month CD Special, 3.14% APY, $1k minimum deposit

Availability: Market area covers the Chicago metropolitan area, aka Chicagoland.

Last week, Royal Bank added a 11-month CD Special (3.14% APY) to its product line. The minimum opening deposit is $1k, with no stated balance cap.

Royal Bank also added a 7-month CD Special, but its 2.31% APY isn’t that competitive. Like the 11-month, the 7-month CD Special requires a $1k minimum deposit.

As stated in the Certificate of Deposit page, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for CDs with terms of less than one year reads as follows:

The fee we may impose will equal 90 days interest on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty.

The Certificate of Deposit page also states that earned interested cannot be withdrawn prior to maturity.

Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, Royal Bank’s market area includes the greater Chicago metropolitan area, aka Chicagoland.

Opening a CD Special at Royal Bank must be done in person at any of nine full-service Illinois branches located in Chicago (7), Niles, and Westmont.

"...we may impose..." I sometimes see this not so absolute wording. Anyone have experiences in general about EWPs waived?
