4.40% 21-Month / 3.60% 11-Month CD at a Pennsylvania CU (Tri Boro).

POSTED ON BY

Update 3/22/08: The special CD rates have ended.

Update 3/8/08: The special CD rates have gone down. The new rates are 4.40% APY 21-month, 3.75% APY 17-month and 3.60% APY 11-month. The title has been modified to reflect this change.

Tri Boro Federal Credit Union has several high yield certificate specials. These include include a 4.60% APY 21-month CD, a 4.50% APY 17-month CD, 4.00% APY 11-month CD and a 4.30% APY 7-month CD. All have a minimum deposit of $2,500 and require 25% new money.

In August 2007 the credit union was offering similar specials with yields about one percent higher. Considering the Fed has cut rates by 2.25% since then, these current yields are pretty good deals.

Membership is open to all those who reside, worship, work or attend school in Allegheny or Washington County. See their membership page for the full details. Membership requires a minimum $50 deposit in the share savings account.

Branches are located in the suburbs of Pittsburgh in the towns of Munhall, McMurray and Monroeville. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 794). It has $104.3 million in assets and 15,614 members.

Thanks again to the reader Dan The Man for mentioning this CD special in the comments of the finding deals post.

Hmmmm. "Allegheny or Washington County" includes all of Pittsburgh. There should be some real opportunities for anyone with a little creativity to qualify for membership. It's a very good deal.

I purchased a 21 mth. at 5.60% and a 13 mth.at 5.50% last year. I had to visit a branch location and show ID to become a MEMBER. In and out in 10 minutes. I live in Pittsburgh though.

Thanks for the info. I'm sure many people wished they had purchased those CDs last year with a 5.50% APY.
