Countrywide Bank is offering high rates on their savings accounts, money markets and CDs.
[Side Note: On 1/11/08 Bank of America annoucned they were buying Countrywide Financial Corp. Although I don’t believe this necessitates a merger of the banks, that will most likely happen.]
For $50,000 and above, the savings rate is 3.80% APY. Updated 05/21/2008.
They have over $99 Billion dollars in assets and are FDIC insured. Their FDIC# is 33143.
If you like talking to a real person we can help with CDs, but we have a fee for that service. You can call us at 800-234-4605 or email us.
