California Credit Union has some competitive rates on its promotional certificates. The 7-month special certificate has a yield of 4.00% APY for a minimum deposit of $1,000. The yield is 4.20% APY for a $100,000 minimum deposit. There's also a 37-month certificate with a decent yield of 4.30% APY (4.50% APY for the Jumbo). These are available for both regular and IRA share certificates.
The credit union has offered several CD promotions in the last couple of years. My last report on this credit union was in February.
Credit union membership is open to members of the Parent Teacher Association or the Parent Teacher Student Association. According to the credit union's Membership Page, if you're "Not a PTA/PTSA member? We'll sign you up!" Also, public television contributors are eligible.
