9.00% 9-Month CD at a Colorado CU - $2K Max (Elevations)


Elevations Credit Union is offering a 9% APY 9-month certifcate. The minimum deposit is $1K and the maximum is $2K per member. A checking account is required. A free checking account is allowed for new members. Current members must open a dividend bearing checking account. There's also a 5.27% APY 7-month certificate with a $5K minimum without restrictions.

Since the checking account is required, you can think of this 9% CD like a checking account bonus. Having $2K in a 9% CD for 9 months would result in about $50 over what you would earn in a market leading 9-month CD.

The field of membership includes all students, faculty, staff and alumni association members of the University of Colorado system. Residents of Boulder County who are 50 years of age and older may join by becoming a member of the 50 and Better Club. There's also a long list of Select Employer Groups. Membership requires a $25 minimum deposit into a savings account.

Branches are located in Boulder, Longmont and Lafayette, Colorado.

The credit union is NCUA insured. It has $673 million in assets and 75K members.
