Hopefully, the bank deals at World Savings will continue. There was concern about Western Financial's online high yield money market account after the Wachovia take-over. However, the account remains, and the interest rate has remained competitive (currently 4.60% APY). Also, Western Financial has also been offering a competitive 5.25% APY 13-month CD.
World Savings currently has two nice CD deals. The first is a 5.16% 5-month internet certificate of deposit special. The other one just starts today and is available only at the branches. The CD pays 5.51% APY and you can choose terms between 7 and 11 months (see post).
