12-Month CD Special But With A Low Maximum Deposit In Parts Of CA

Saturday, December 8, 2012 - 9:39 AMArrowhead Central Credit Union - Details
Arrowhead Central Credit Union has a promotional 1-year certificate with the following features:
  • 2.01% APY 1-year CD
  • $2,500 maximum deposit
  • available through 1/31/2013
  • Limit one per member
  • Does not apply to IRAs
Please refer to this credit union rates sheet for more details.

The $2,500 maximum deposit hurts this deal (That's why I'm not writing a blog post). The maximum amount of interest that can be earned from this special CD is only about $50 (0.02 * $2,500).

Patelco Credit Union's new member special 12-month CD is actually a better deal. It has a 5% APY with a $1,000 max which also results in an earning of $50.

Arrowhead Central Credit Union's field of membership is listed in the credit union's online application:
  • Any employee of a qualifying employer or its affiliates
  • Any person who lives, works or worships in San Bernardino or Riverside Counties
  • Any person who has a relative who is a current member of Arrowhead Credit Union
