Dedicated to Deposits: Deals, Data, and Discussion

5.50% 24-Month / 5.45% 12-Month at an Idaho/Washington CU (Potlatch No. 1).


Update 11/03/07: CD rates have fallen. Please check credit union's website for latest rates.

Potlatch No. 1 Federal Credit Union is offering competitive rates on its share certificates. For a $10K minimum deposit, the yields range from 5.25% APY for a 6-month term to 5.65% APY for a 60-month term. Jumbo CD rates with a $100K minimum are 5 basis points higher. The same rates are available for IRA certificates. Below is the full list of yields for a $10K minimum deposit:

Term APY
6 month 5.25%
12 month 5.45%
18 month 5.45%
24 month 5.50%
36 month 5.55%
48 month 5.60%
60 month 5.65%

The date on the rate table is September 4th, so I called and confirmed that these rates are still available and should remain at least through this week.

Last month this credit union was offering a special 8% 108-day CD without a maximum deposit limit. So this looks like a good credit union to join in case more of these super CD deals return.
