Oregon-based Advantis Credit Union (Advantis) is currently offering tiered rates on its 60-month High-Growth CD, with a $100k minimum deposit earning 3.50% APY. The other rates available on the 60-month are 3.25% APY ($50k minimum) and 3.00% ($500 minimum).
As DA reader, Alsakar, noted in a Forum post, Advantis has two Special Offer Bonus Rates, which are available on any certificate term. Both Bonus Rates require new money: a minimum $10k deposit of new money adds an additional 10 bps, with an additional 25 bps added for a minimum $25k deposit of new money. “New money” is defined as “funds that have not been on deposit with Advantis before the date of account opening.”
Add To Your CD
All the High-Growth CDs have unlimited additional deposits any time throughout the term.
There are NO limits when you Add-To your CD in-branch, by phone, or through secure email.
- Online Banking Transfers: Currently, on external transfers via Online Banking, there is a $10,000 daily and $20,000 monthly Add-To limit.
- Balance Considerations: If your additional deposits elevate your balance into a higher CD rate level, your rate of return will remain fixed at the rate associated with your initial deposit for the length of your initial term. Then, when you choose to renew your CD, you’ll automatically receive that new rate in the higher CD level.
The Early Withdrawal Penalty for High-Growth CDs with terms of 3 years or greater is 270 days of interest.
You may cash in your Certificate of Deposit (CD) early but you will have to pay an early withdrawal penalty. You may also withdraw part of your funds; you will only pay penalty on the amount you are withdrawing.
Thanks to DA reader, Alsakar, for sharing this great deal on DepositAccounts.com.
