11% annual interest !!

Tata Motors, one of India's biggest and most respected corporation is offering a fixed deposit scheme offering upto 11% interest (compounded), thats a huge huge huge deal and right now I am scrambling to put together as big a war chest as possible for this. Unfortunately it doesnt seem I can come up with more than 1.5k, without dipping into my cash savings. So what do you think should I be dipping into my cash savings to try and put as much into this as possible?
