3.75% 60-Month CD & 3.00% 36-Month CD at Dime Savings Bank in New York


Update 6/27/09: The 36-month special CD is now 2.50% APY.

Dime Savings Bank is offering a special 3.75% APY 60-month CD and a 3.00% APY 36-month CD. Minimum deposit is $500. These promotions are listed on the bank's front page as of 6/21/09.

The bank has an online application for both of these CDs. In the application they provide an account disclosure for both the 60-month CD and the 36-month CD. According to the terms, interest is compounded daily and credited to the account monthly and at maturity. The early withdrawal penalty is equal to 6 months of interest. There's a 10-calendar grace period at maturity.

When I called Dime Savings last March about a similar promotion, I was told it was available to people in any state. It appears this new one has the same availability. If you're interested in these CDs, I recommend calling Dime Savings at 800-321-DIME (3463) for the latest instructions. When I called in March, I was told the rate locks at the time the application is submitted. You can fund the account with a check or an ACH transfer.

Dime Savings' branches are located throughout the Greater New York metro area.

There are a few banks and credit unions offering long-term CD rates a little better than these Dime Savings' rates. US Bank is one example with its 4.00% APY 59-month CD. But it's important to note that US Bank has a much more severe early withdrawal penalty. Pentagon Federal Credit Union has the best long-term CD deals with not only a 4% APY 60-month CD but also an early withdrawal penalty that's similar to that of Dime Savings.
