You can get an extra 10 basis for a 1.70% APY with a checking account and direct deposit. Two other specials include a 1.30% APY 9-month CD and a 1.35% APY 13-month CD. There are no rate bumps on these for a checking account. Minimum deposit for all three CDs is $500. These specials don't seem to be listed on the bank's website.

A branch visit is required to open an account. Branches are located in several South Florida cities including Miami, Hollywood, Coral Gables and Hialeah.
