7.00% 6-Month CD ($5K Max) at Premier America Credit Union is Extended


Premier America Credit Union
Premier America Credit Union has extended its 5-6-7 CD special to continue through February. It was originally scheduled to end on the 15th. It's a 7.00% APY 6-month certifcate with a minimum deposit of $1,000, and a maximum of $5,000. A checking account is required, and funds must be new to the credit union. There's a limit of one certificate per member/social security number.

This promotion is similar to a checking account bonus. The 7% for 6 months with a $5K deposit will earn you about $75 over what you would get with a 4% account. A couple can open two of these to make a net gain of $150. Their best checking account is the Basic Checking which requires only a $25 minimum opening deposit and has no monthly fees.

For more details on this credit union and how to join, please refer to my previous Premier America CU post.

The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 68428). It has $1.32 billion in assets and 72,172 members.

The site is down today. Does anyone have a phone number to this place?

Was able to apply for membership and open accounts online.
However the "5-6-7 Certificate", while still available (and shown on the website), is not one of the listed choices in the online application itself.
Call to verify that your funding deposit will indeed go to that special promo certificate, or you might wind up in a regular 6 month product.
Premier America customer service on phone, and email is surprisingly good.

Tried to open an account and one of their 5-6-7 certificates. Was turned down without an explanation. Same thing for my husband. They seemed to be most interested in where we lived ... on the other side of the country. My opinion is that they thought we would not be a 'regular' customer. Oh well!

I live on the right coast and experienced the same no explanation given turn-down after applying online.

Same here. I am also on the right coast and was turned down without explanation. When I called, they said that the system automatically decides and they have no control??!!?? I checked my credit history and it is excellent so I have no idea why. If it is because I am on the "right coast" and won't seem like a long term customer that is unfair. As long as they have good rates and good CS, no reason why anyone wouldn't want to stay with them.
