Update 5/3/08: The CD rates have fallen. Please check the credit union's website for the latest rates.

American First Credit Union is offering a competitive rate on its 6 and 12-month share certificates. For a Jumbo certificate the yield is 4.03% APY. This requires a $100,000 minimum deposit. A yield of 3.77% APY is available with only a $1,000 minimum. These rates are also available in an IRA. The rate table has a date of 4/1/08, so it seems likely these rates will last through April.
