Technology Credit Union has started a certificate special with a yield of 6.00% APY and a term of 6 months. The minimum deposit is $10,000, and there is no maximum deposit. New money is required. Note, the promo page makes it look like you can extend the term to 270 days, but I called and was told that the term is only for 6 months.
My last report on this credit union was back in September 2006 when it was offering a 5.80% 10-month CD.
Membership is open to those who live, work, worship or attend school in any of the following California counties: Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Cruz and San Francisco. You can also be eligible via select employer groups and via relatives. Please see their membership page for details. Membership requires a $25 deposit into a savings account and can be opened online.
Branches are located in Cupertino, Fremont, Milpitas, Moutain View, San Jose, Santa Clara and Sunnyvale. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 68383). It's a large credit union with $1.3 billion in assets and 76,693 members.
