American United Federal Credit Union (AMUCU) began the month by introducing a 10-month Share Certificate Special (2.00% APY). This limited-time offer is available through December 29, 2017. The minimum opening deposit is $500 of new money, with no stated balance cap.

Funds withdrawn from an AMUCU account and redeposited within a

The 10-month Share Certificate Special is also available as an IRA (Traditional, Roth, CESA, and SEP), earning the same APY with the same funding requirements.

As stated in the fine print on the Deposit Rates page, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:

The penalty we may impose will equal 180 days
dividends on the amount withdrawn (whether earned or not).

Bump Option

While some of AMUCU’s Share Certificates have a “Bump Option,” the 10-month Share Certificate Special does not qualify for “a one-time rate change (to current published rates) during the life of the certificate.” The bump can also be waived up front in exchange for an additional 0.10% rate increase.

I’m mentioning the Bump Option because of AMUCU’s 60-month Share Certificate that currently earns 2.60% APY. The additional “up front” 10 bps would boost the 60-month Share Certificate to the top of 5-year category for CDs available in Utah.
