The credit union also offers a competitive reward checking account with a 4.51% APY for balances up to $25,000 as of 12/16/09 (see post).
Membership is open to those who live, work, worship or attend school in one of the following Texas counties: Aransas, Bee, Jim Wells, Kleberg, Nueces and San Patricio. Refer to the credit union's Who-Can-Join page for more details. Membership requires a $15 membership fee and a minimum deposit of $25 in the savings account. Most credit unions don't have a membership fee so this may be something you can negotiate. The credit union does have a history of competitive CD rates so the upfront cost may still be worth it.
Branches are located in the Texas cities of Corpus Christi, Kingsville, Beeville, Portland and Rockport.
