3.50% 60-Month CD at LGE Community Credit Union in GA - Local Only


LGE Community Credit Union
LGE Community Credit Union is offering a 3.50% APY 60-month certificate. It's part of their Double 350 promotion in which you can get 3.50% APY on both their 5-year CD and their reward checking account (see post). Minimum deposit for the CD is $1,000. It's also available in an IRA. Early withdrawal penalty is 180 days of dividends. The rate is listed at the credit union's deposit rates table as of 11/23/09.

The 3.50% APY on the reward checking account may sound a lot better than a 5-year CD. However, as we've seen this year, there's no guarantee that the checking rate will hold. Also, the 3.50% APY is limited to $25K in the reward checking account. So there are reasons to open both.

Credit union membership is open to anyone who is a resident of Cobb, Cherokee, or Paulding County. You can also be eligible via a select employer group. Please refer to the credit union's Joining LGE page for the full details. Membership requires a minimum balance in the membership share savings account.

Branches are located in the Atlanta suburbs of Marietta, Austell, Kennesaw, Calhoun and Hiram.
