First Personal Bank has the best add-on CD I’ve seen in in the Chicago area for awhile: Their 11-month add-on CD is yielding 4.50% APY. Unlike some add-on CDs that will only let you add to the initial deposit once, additions in this CD are allowed at any time in any amount at the same interest rate as the initial deposit. The CD has a minimum deposit of only $250.
First Personal Bank has three locations: Archer Ave. and Austin Ave. in Chicago, Archer Ave. and McCarthy Rd. in Lemont, and 14701 Ravinia Ave in Orland Park.
