If the OCBC Bank Singapore National Day Savings Promotion didn’t attract you, you may be interested in the above Singapore Dollar Time Deposit promotion from Maybank. You can choose between a 9 months or 12 months tenure period whereby the interest rate per annum is 2.10% p.a. and 2.22% p.a. respectively. This promotion is the best one I have found so far in terms of the interest rate it offers.
Here is the catch for the time deposit offered by Maybank:
- You need to have a Maybank Current or Savings account.
- For every S$1,000 deposited into Maybank Current or Savings accounts (minimum S$2,000), you can deposit S$10,000 into Maybank Singapore Dollar Time Deposit accounts (minimum S$20,000). This means you need at least S$22,000 (S$2,000 into Current or Savings account and S$20,000 into the time deposit account).
- Choose between 9 months or 12 months period to enjoy 2.10% p.a. or 2.22% p.a. respectively.
- Must be fresh funds.
For fresh funds of S$20,000 at 2.20% p.a. for 12 months, the interest you earn is S$440.
For fresh funds of S$20,000 at 2.10% p.a. for 9 months, the interest you earn is S$314.18.
