5% 1-Year $1K Max CD At A+ Federal Credit Union In Texas

Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 2:53 PMA+ Credit Union - Details
A+ Federal Credit Union has long offered its StartUP Share Certificate with a 5.00% APY. It's a 1-year CD with a maximum deposit of $1,000. There's a limit of one per member.

Minimum deposit is $10, and it allows add-on deposits.

The 5% is about 3.5% higher than what you can get for a 1-year term these days. That results in $35 extra dollars for a $1K deposit.

This CD alone is probably not enough reason to join this credit union, but if you join for other reasons, there's no reason not to open this CD.

Credit union membership is open to anyone who's a member of the A+ Education Foundation, an association that's easy to join with a $10 fee. Refer to their membership page for the full details.

Branches are located in the Austin metro area.

I had to laugh at this. Even though I'm in Texas it would cost way more in gas just to get to Austin and back than I would receive in interest. Like you posted Ken, if one were opening other accounts there, it would be worth the few extra bucks.
