According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty for the 15-month CD is 1% of the amount withdrawn.

Relationship Savings

HCB also offered a Relationship Savings account last March that earned a competitive 1.25% APY, up to $250k. While the CDs in this new promotion have rates higher than what was offered in March, the Relationship Savings' APY has remained the same, losing its competitive edge. The minimum opening deposit for the Relationship Savings account is $100.

The Relationship Savings account is available to customers who have an existing or open a new Totally Free checking account. This offer also requires that the checking account have either a monthly Direct Deposit of $250 or more, OR four debit card transactions each month.

As its name suggests, the Totally Free checking has no monthly service fee or minimum balance requirement, but does required a $100 minimum opening deposit. The first five ATM fees (both HCB and “foreign” banks) in a statement cycle are reimbursed.
