Purepoint Raises 1-year CD rate to 2.80%
Dec 7, 2018

Purepoint has raised their one-year CD rate to 2.80% from 2.60% today.   The rate requires a minimum deposit of $10,000, and is still below the best online one-year CDs.   Purepoint's one-year CDs have a 181-day early withdrawal penalty which is higher than that on one-year CDs from Barclays Bank Delaware, Ally Bank, Live Oak and others. 

Purepoint MUFG Union Raises Online Savings Rate to 2.35%

Purepoint Lowers 1-Year CD rate
May 30, 2019

Purepoint has lowed its one-year CD rate to 2.75%.   This continues a trend that we are seeing of declining premiums in all CD categories.    

Purepoint Slashes CD Rates
Jun 28, 2019

Purepoint has slashed all of its CD rates by 50 basis points.   The one-year CD has moved from 2.75% to 2.25% and the five-year has moved from 3.00% to 2.50% overnight.   While Purepoint has instantly removed itself from competitiveness on the CD front, the 13-month no penalty CD remains a very attractive savings alternative at 2.50%.

Purepoint Cuts No Penalty CD to 2.00%
Jul 1, 2019

Purepoint's 13-Month No Penalty CD is a product that we recommended when it launched at 2.60% and continued to recommend at 2.50%.    The rate has now been cut to 2.00% and depositors should now look to the higher No Penalty rates from Marcus and Ally first.

Purepoint Lowers Savings Rate from 2.35% to 2.15%
Jul 17, 2019

Purepoint Financial has lowered its savings rate by 20 basis points today.    Its savings rate now stands at 2.15%.   This move follows recent moves to lower all of its CD rates and its No Penalty CD rate.

    - QUIET RATE DROPS (I have a couple of other OSAs and the rate drops are always announced by email).
    - UNAVAILABLE CUSTOMER SERVICE (don't try to contact them during non-regular business hours).
    - Gummy bears, tea, coffee, etc. for birthdays and X-Mas gifts. Small gifts, but it is nice to be recognized as a client.

    We opened up a savings account at the Purepoint office in Glendale Heights, Illinois in December of 2018. We never had a online savings account because it was too confusing to open being titled to a trust. Their employees made it so easy. They instructed us on how to do a deposit and bank transfer. They made sure that we were comfortable with the process. We are both baby boomers from the pre technology era. Their employees made in such an pleasurable experience. This company knows how to hire and train their employees. And you can’t beat their rates. Highly recommended.

    Purepoint is awful in every way, except transfers are immediately. That is why I stay, even though though the rate is no longer competitive.

    Online Savings Rates

    I've been a customer for a while. While I appreciated receiving a flyer advertising an 18 month CD at 2.90% in my mailbox, I was disappointed not to be able to open online. The rate online is 2.70%. I am not going to the customer center or whatever it is for an extra 0.20%. More likely to close the account and be done with these guys.
