Arvest Bank currently offers residents Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kansas an assortment of productive CD rates. This includes their current top CD rate, which offers a 0.45% APY over the course of 2-year account. To qualify for this kind of account, a member must be able to make a $95,000 (95k) minimum deposit.
At the same time, Arvest Bank also offers several other worthwhile CD rates with differing deposit periods and minimum deposits. For example, a 2-year CD with a minimum deposit of between $10,000 and $49,999 is eligible for a 0.30% APY. Meanwhile, a 6-month CD with a $50,000 to $94,000 minimum deposit can qualify for a 0.25% APY.
Currently, all of the APY rates are below the national average for their CD length. However, as a tradeoff, they do allow for accrued interest to be withdrawn before the account reaches maturity. They also offer fairly straightforward domestic wire transfer fees at $10 and $25 for inbound and outbound transfers, respectively.
Arvest Bank also offers a variety of checking and Money Market accounts to qualified members. With a minimum balance of $50, Arvest allows checking members to earn a 0.05% APY, for example. Meanwhile, this bank’s best APY rate on a Money Market account stands at 0.25% APY for $5,000,000 minimum deposit.
