World Savings 6.01% APY 9-Month CD

I heard a rumor that World Savings in offering 6.01% APY on their 9-month CDs. However, the rumor is that this deal is availible only in branches. Go drive out to your local World Savings Bank and inquire about this KILLER promo!

  • 6.01% APY (5.84% interest rate)
  • 9-month term
  • $10K minimum deposit
  • $100K maximum deposit
  • Requires money new to World Savings
  • Offer ends 8/26/06.

UPDATE (DEAL CONFIRMED): I just opened a 6% 9-month CD at my local World Savings Bank in Arcadia, CA (Southern California). This is a REALLY HOT interest rate considering the Fed interest rate hikes stopped today. I also got a free safe deposit box from them for opening the account! I�ve never had one before.

    The 6.01 CD rate offered by World Savings. Does this apply to the Word Savings in San Antonio? There is an office located off Broadway Street.

    I have been with World Savings Bank for over 20 years both at a branch and with the on-line CD offers. They have been a great bank to deal with and very good customer service. highest rates I’ve been able to get even from my branch and other local banks or on-line banks. NO CATCHS!

    If you look on their front page (someone posted one here) or go to their website it states: FDIC insured!!!!

    World Savings Bank is FDIC insured. No doubts about it. Please do not spread misinformation on Bankaholic.

    Please be aware that accounts at this “bank” are NOT FDIC insured.
    Go to their website and it will show you at the bottom of every page.
    Millenium Bank is the same way.
    These are trying times for all banks due to the sub prime mortgage lending fiasco.
    Countrywide will be the first to go under i.e. BANKRUPT.
    So far INDYMAC bank looks to be the highest and safest one, but I’m always looking for better and safe rates.

  29. Ernst V. said:

    OK, I made a mistake! They are FDIC insured except for their securities and insurance products.
    Should have read it more carefully.
