2.85% 13-Month CD at Baxter Credit Union in IL & WI


Baxter Credit Union
Baxter Credit Union (BCU) is offering a special 13-month CD with a rate of 2.85% APY. Minimum deposit is $500. This special is listed in the credit union's rate table as of 4/01/09. Since credit unions often update their rates at the start of the month, I called BCU this morning and confirmed this special is still available. According to the CSR, it should last through April.

BCU continues to offer a reward checking account with rates up to 4% APY as of 4/01/09 (see post).

Membership is open to those who live or work in the Illinois counties of Cook (not all parts), Dupage, Kane, Lake and McHenry, in the Village of Schaumburg, and in the Wisconsin County of Kenosha. You can also be eligible based on employer groups and family members. Please refer to the Membership Page for more details. Membership requires a minimum balance of $5 in the savings account.

BCU has a 4-star rating (excellent) at BauerFinancial based on 12/31/08 financial data. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 68187). It's a large credit union with $1.4 billion in assets and 137,461 members.
