4.25% 18-Month CD at a Georgia Bank (Security Exchange)


Security Exchange Bank is offering a special 4.25% APY 18-month CD. The minimum deposit is $500, and it has no maximum deposit and no checking account requirement. It doesn't seem to be listed at the bank's website. A reader mentioned seeing this advertised on a sign outside the bank, and I just called for additional details. The reader said it was a 12-month term, but the CSR said it was an 18-month term. The CSR didn't know how much longer it would last, but she said it had just started. A branch visit is required for new customers.

Branches are located in Marietta, Georgia which is just north of Atlanta. The bank has been FDIC insured since 2000 (FDIC Certificate # 35299).

Thanks to Vijay who emailed me info on this CD special.
