After you're accustomed to saving money and have accumulated a larger balance, you may want to step up to this account and earn a higher interest rate. This account offers limited check writing ability along with tiered interest rates to help you maximize your savings. Add BIG CHANGE, and watch your savings grow every time you use your Busey Debit Mastercard.
Certificates of Deposit (CDs) can help you pursue your investment needs and goals while also providing safety of principal. Busey offers a wide range of CD terms and competitive interest rates.
Available only to our Pillar Banking and Capstone Checking customers, the Portfolio Certificate of Deposit (CD) offers greater earning power and capital preservation by dividing a minimum deposit of $7,500 equally among three termed certificates - 12-month, 24-month and 36-months. Known as "laddering maturities," investing similar balances in multiple certificate terms provides many benefits:
  • Higher interest rates - longer term investments typically pay higher interest rates and do not require you to attempt to predict interest rate movements
  • Stable flow of income - a portion of your money is regularly available as different CDs mature
  • Liquidity - a portion of your investment will re-price in the market
  • Preservation of capital - CDs are insured for up to the maximum allowed by the FDIC

Pillar Banking customers enjoy this and many other benefits—including membership in our Pillar Club. 
Holiday spending can put strain on a budget. Why not set money aside now in an interest bearing account to help you make the holiday season a little less painful for your wallet? Busey' Holiday Club Account gives you the flexibility to add as much or as little as you would like throughout the year for your holiday purchases.
