The $1,000 maximum deposit (per member) hurts this deal, but at least it doesn't require a checking account. If you deposit $1,000 into a 10% 3-month CD, you'll make about $25.
It's only available on Black Friday (Nov 26, 2010) from 6:00am to 12:00pm at Service Credit Union branches (click on the details link)

Some other Black Friday specials mentioned include Visa gift cards without a fee, an additional 1% off on personal loans, and a $25 gift card for opening a Service Credit Union credit card.
