Suggestion for banking guy: Please use word "Certificate" for term deposits with credit unions & use word "CD" for term deposits with banks. Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion. Most credit unions do classify their term deposits as share certificates and banks classify their term deposits as certificates of deposit. This terminology is also similar for savings accounts. The name share is intended to indicate a part ownership in the credit union. But from a practical point-of-view, I'm not sure there is any difference. Many credit unions often use the term CD since it's a much shorter and more understandable term. In fact, this credit union actually has the name certificate of deposit on its rate table.
