February 15, 2009 5 Comments »

Update 2012: As with CD rates as a whole, Regal Bank’s CD rates have dropped significantly over the last few years. They offer three “CD specials” currently which boasts the best rates. They have an 11 month CD yielding 1.0% APY, a 30 month CD yielding 1.30% APY and a promotional 60 month CD yielding 1.80% APY. All of Regal Financial Bank’s deposits come with a minimum deposit requirement of $1,000.

Regal Financial Bank of Seattle, Washington currently has an MVP 12 month CD special going on through March 15, 2009. The 12 month MVP certificate of deposit comes with an impressive 4.00% APY!

I’ve attempted to contact a representative from this bank to see if there are any geographical restrictions. I will post the results when I hear back.

Despite being somewhat of a boutique-ish bank, Regal Bank still provides deposits to everyday consumers and they are known for frequently offering CD rate “specials” or promotions which usually provide well above average annual percentage yields accompanied with oddball maturity dates.

According to BankRate’s chart of highest yielding certificates of deposit with 12 month maturities, the highest APY is offered through FlagStar Bank. Their 12 month CD has a 2.97% APY, making this MVP 12 month CD extremely attractive in comparison.

The 4.0% APY is good for all balances between $2,500 and $250,000 – essentially making this CD a jumbo certificate of deposit if you so choose.

    good find. why doesn’t bankrate take this high interest cd rate into account on their stie? looks like it may be for washington state residents only

    Luckily I have already locked in higher CD rates at 4%-5%, as I foresaw falling interest rates on deposits nationwide. If you still want to earn a high rate, open a rewards checking account.. Most are still yieldinog 5%-6%

    I contacted a bank rep and this is what they told me about this account:

    Anyone can take advantage of this (as in anyone in the United States). In order to qualify for this rate, you have to have 2 other accounts with their bank. A checking account and a savings account. The checking account needs to be opened with 500.00 to avoid a service charge and 1,000.00 to savings to open.

    Basically you need $1500 as a prerequisite to getting this CD certificate of deposit rate, but if you are looking to invest a large amount of dough this is prob the best out there.

    The bank refused to accept my application online, I was told it was only good in WA state. Unfair!!!
