CheckSpring Bank is offering a special 13-month CD with a 2.00% APY. Minimum deposit is $1,000. This special isn't listed on the bank's website. I emailed the bank yesterday (2/23/10) and was told of this special. The special is subject to change at anytime.
It's a small bank located in Bronx of New York City. It appears that a branch visit is required to open an account.
The bank was established in 2007, and thus, it's labeled as a start-up at BauerFinancial without a rating. However, Bankrate.com gives it a 3-star rating (performing) for safety and soundness based on 9/30/09 financial data. The bank has been a FDIC member since October 2007 (FDIC Certificate # 58668).
