National Deal: 18-Month, 1.51% CD Rates

Hampshire First Bank has special 18-month CD rates available nationwide.

Hampshire First Bank offers this deal with a $1,000 minimum depositIt’s paying 1.51% APY with a $1,000 minimum deposit.

That’s a perfect fit between the top nationally available 12- and 24-month CD rates on our CD Rates Leaderboard.

The bank also offers a 36-month step-up CD for 2.01%. While that’s nearly two-tenths of a percentage point less than what you can earn with the top nationally available deal, it’s worth a look if you think interest rates are likely to increase.

With the step-up CD, you can elect to raise your rate once during the term to match what Hampshire First Bank is offering for 36-month CDs at the time of the request.

These certificates of deposit can be purchased by mail, online or in person at one of Hampshire First’s five locations in Keene, Londonderry, Manchester, Nashua and Portsmouth, N.H.

See how these returns compare with the best CD rates from scores of banks in our extensive database.

    We received some bad information from a customer service representative at the bank. We’ll have more on this later today, but this deal IS NOT available nationally. Local savers can still take advantage.

    These rates are still available as of May 23, 2011 (see previous post clarifying that they are local deals and not nationally avalable).
