Greater Nevada Credit Union started offering great rates on IRA CD specials early this year. Those specials were extended a couple of months ago to regular CDs. The credit union has just changed the specials, and the new specials are even a better deal. The specials include a 3% APY 4-year CD, a 2.50% APY 3-year CD, a 2.00% APY 2-year CD and a 1.50% APY 18-month CD. These are also available as IRA CDs. Minimum deposit is $1,000. These rates are listed in the credit union’s rates page as of 6/10/2014.
