2.25% 19-Month CD & 2% 9-Month CD at Service Credit Union - Limited Membership

POSTED ON BY

Service Credit Union has made a change to its certificate promotion, but the rates remain very competitive. The 26-month special has been replaced with a 19-month certificate that has a 2.25% APY. The 2.00% APY 9-month certificate continues. Minimum deposit is $1,000. These are also available in an IRA. The rates are listed in the credit union's savings rates page as of 11/16/09.

10% 3-Month $1K-Max CD Black Friday Special

The credit union is also advertising a Black Friday Sale for the day after Thanksgiving. It's a special 10% APY 3-month CD with a maximum deposit of $1,000. Minimum deposit is $250. It's limited to one per member, and it's only available one day until 12:00pm on 11/27/09 at the credit union branches (not available online or by phone). The credit union will be opening early that day: US Branches are opening at 5:00am. Branches in Germany are opening at 7:00am. The sale could end early if they reach $1 million in new deposits.

The 10% APY is nice, but you'll only make about $25 due to the low maximum and the short term. At least there is no checking account requirement. So it's an easy $25 if you live near a branch.

Their Black Friday sale will also include discounts of 1% on auto and personal loans. For the full details of their Black Friday sale, please refer to the credit union's promotion page.
