$25 Checking Account Bonus at a Maryland/Virginia/DC CU (Washington Telephone)


Washington Telephone FCU is offering $25 for each new member who opens a checking account with direct deposit. Also, current members who refer a new member (who opens checking with direct deposit) will receive $25 during their Money Madness new member campaign. Promotion ends March 31, 2007. Accounts closed within 6 months of opening are subject to a fee of $15.

The credit union is still offering the CD specials that I reported on in February. These include a 5.65% APY 24-month CD and a 5.55% APY 12-month CD. At first I was told these had expired at the end of February, but the latest news is that these have been extended to the end of March.

Field of membership includes those who live, work, worship or attend school in Washington DC or inside the Beltway in Prince George's County, Maryland. You can also be eligible via family and select employer groups. See site for details. Membership requires a $5 deposit into the savings account.

Branches are located in Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA. It has $247.9 million in assets and 34,103 members.

Thanks to the reader ProfessorB who mentioned this special in the finding deals post.
