Demystifying the Add-On CD: Flexibility Built-In

Traditional certificates of deposit (CDs) can offer attractive interest rates, but limited access to your funds throughout the term can feel restrictive. Sunwest Bank’s Freedom Time Account redefines the CD experience with built-in flexibility. As an add-on CD, you enjoy the benefit of making unlimited deposits of $100 or more at any time without extending the chosen term. This empowers you to seamlessly contribute to your savings whenever it suits your financial needs while benefiting from the competitive interest rates a CD offers. Think of it as a hybrid account, combining the accessibility of a savings account with the earning potential of a CD – a powerful tool for growing your wealth with remarkable ease.

Are Add-On CDs Worth It?
Absolutely. Here’s why:

Maximize your earnings: Unlike a standard savings account, the Freedom Time Account offers competitive fixed interest rates. This means your money grows steadily, regardless of market fluctuations.

Goodbye, “money prison”: Need access to your funds for an unexpected opportunity? The Freedom Time Account allows early withdrawals with a minimal penalty. You won’t feel trapped like with a traditional CD.

Grow at your own pace: Whether you have spare cash every week or more considerable lump sums occasionally, the $100 minimum deposit makes adding to your account convenient.

Tailor your timeline: With terms ranging from 14 days to 2 years, you can choose the option that aligns with your financial goals.

But Don’t Just Take Our Word for It…
Let’s address some common questions you might have:

What’s the difference between this and a savings account? Savings accounts offer lower interest rates and may have monthly withdrawal limits. The Freedom Time Account provides significantly higher earning potential and greater deposit flexibility.

Can I add to an existing CD? Not all CDs allow additions. The Freedom Time Account is specifically designed for this, letting you boost your savings throughout the term.

What is a 12-month add-on CD? It’s simply a Freedom Time Account with a 12-month term. You can choose from various terms to suit your needs.

How much does a $10,000 CD make in a year? The exact amount depends on the chosen interest rate and term.
