February 2011 Maturing CD's Bonus 25 Basis Points

Wednesday, February 2, 2011 - 3:50 PMPentagon Federal Credit Union - Details
I  received a notice from PFCU with a redemption notice pertaining to a February 2010 CD that if I  wanted to roll it over for either 5  or 7 years they would add 25 basis points to the renewal interest rate. (example 7 year CD would  be 3.25% on renewal). Not sure if this information has been seen or not.

I do not have any maturing CD's at this time at Pentagon, but I was noticing that this post applies to only some states. I find that disheartening if true.

You have to specify the share certificate will automatically renew to the 5 or 7 year period. This has to be done either on-line or by phone so it's in place ahead of the maturity date. The PenFed CSR advised don't wait until the last minute because the offer may be withdrawn at any time.

I received the same notice for my CD that matured in January.  I live in OH, so I don't see it being state specific.
