    Online CDs 12 Month Rates

    Agree with "Cannot recommend", this is a bricks and mortar bank with a very limited online presence.

    Online Savings Rates

    I applied 5 days ago. I have perfect credit. Got a letter back saying that they were unable to verify my credit with Equifax. I have never dreamed of being rejected for a savings account and have nothing more to say (speechless).

    Online CDs 12 Month Rates

    This is not an online bank. It is a Massachusetts bank discriminating against Massachusetts residents by trying to offer higher rates to outsiders. But, their online capabilities are a joke. Please remove from the online table and return this to the Mass. table.

    Great rates on CD's, but a big pain in the --- to get through the account opening even when you are a existing customer.

    Online CDs 24 Month Rates

    The rate caught my attention. I see a 1-year early withdraw penalty on a 2-year CD. No go. Wouldn't touch. Good bye.

    I read it as saying 6 months. What I see that is ridiculous is that I cannot open it because I live in Rhode Island. Massachusetts residents also excluded.
