It’s the banking equivalent of
having your cake and eating it too:
A CD combined with a high-yield savings account
Certificates of Deposit (CDs), unlike traditional savings accounts, are a great way to earn interest on money you plan on keeping tucked away. They are risk-free insured timed deposit accounts where, at maturity, you earn interest accrued.
We offer a variety of competitive CDs based on your choice of terms.
COmpanion Savings Account
Get the best of both worlds with First State Bank & Trust’s Companion Savings account - a high-yield savings account created to accompany newly issued FSBT CDs. Customers who open an FSBT CD with a term of five months or greater are also eligible to open a high-yield savings account of equal or lesser value and benefit from:
✓ Higher APY than a traditional savings account*
✓ No time commitment
✓ No penalty for early withdrawal
✓ Unlimited in-person withdrawals
✓ No minimum balance requirement
✓ No monthly service charge or transaction fee
It’s time to start earning on your terms.
How it works:
When you open a CD with terms of five months or greater with FSBT, you’ll also be eligible to open a Companion Savings Account of equal or lesser value. Both accounts will earn interest and you’ll be able to withdraw from the Companion Savings account with no penalty.
