If a husband and wife both put in the maximum deposit, they'll earn about $60 over what would be earned if $5K were deposited into a 2% 7-month CD. At least there doesn't seem to be any checking account requirement for this special.
Membership is open to those who live, work, worship or attend school in any of the following California counties: Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Cruz and San Francisco.
