GCS Federal Credit Union has a very attractive CD special with a 5.09% APY for a 15-month term. The minimum deposit is $1,000, and there is no mention of a maximum deposit. It's listed in a banner on the credit union's front page and in the rate table.
I've posted on a few good CD deals from this credit union in the past. My last post was in January.
