GUNS HELP BANKS BOOST INTEREST, LURE CUSTOMERS By John Flesher The Associated Press March 25, 2001 http://chicagotribune.com/business/businessnews/article/0,2669,SAV-0103250002,FF.html

On the $869 20 year example with 5.5% interest, the present value of that $869 you'll get back in 20 years is $289.29. So it seems like you're paying $869 minus $289 or $580 for the rifle. On the 3-year deal, the $4009 you get back at maturity seems to be worth $3399 now, so you're paying $4009 - $3399 or $610 for the rifle. Still seems like a good deal, and you don't have the risk of getting locked in for a longer time at a low rate. Based on 5.5 % annual interest converted to daily rate in a 365 day year. Taxes not considered.
