5.75% 6-Month CD at a California CU (Metro 1)


Metro 1 Credit Union is offering a special 5.75% APY 6-month certificate of deposit. The minimum is $1K and the maximum is $100K. It requires new money. The offer expires on 12/23/06.

It's not advertised on the credit union's website. I had seen it mentioned at eMoneyCentral. I called to confirm. I was told it had been advertised in the ContraCostaTimes Newspaper.

The field of membership includes those who lives, works or worhips in Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano Counties, California. You can also be eligible through select employer groups and by family (including extended family). See site for details.

Branches are located in Antioch, Concord and Richmond, California. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA. It has $188 million in assets and 19,777 members.
