*APY=Annual Percentage Yield. APYs accurate as of 04/1/2014. Rates may change after account is opened. Minimum to open is $100. If qualifications are met each monthly qualification cycle: (1) balances up to $10,000 receive APY of 1.50%; and (2) balances over $10,000 earn 0.10% interest rate on portion of balance over $10,000, resulting in 1.50% - 0.10% APY depending on the balance. If qualifications are not met, all balances earn 0.05% APY. Qualifying transactions must post to and settle account during monthly qualification cycle. Transactions may take one or more banking days from the date transaction was made to post to and settle an account. ATM-processed transactions do not count towards qualifying debit card transactions. "Monthly Qualification Cycle" means a period beginning one day prior to the first day of the current statement cycle through one day prior to the close of the current statement cycle. Transfers between accounts do not count as qualifying transactions. Fees may reduce earnings. Limit one account per customer and is available on personal accounts only. This account cannot be used for multiple small dollar transactions in the statement cycle to earn the higher APY. **ATM receipt must be presented for reimbursement of an individual ATM fee of $5.00 or higher. In the event of fraudulent or clearly excessive use of this feature on a given account, Community Bank of Pleasant Hill reserves the right to remove this feature and not refund the ATM fees.
