Andrews Federal Credit Union 24-Month Jumbo CD Adds 65 bps


Deal Summary: 24-month Jumbo Share Certificate, 2.15% APY, $10k minimum deposit.

Availability: Easy membership requirement.

I, as well as many DA readers, was sad to see that Andrews Federal Credit Union (Andrews Federal) stopped offering its long-running Certificate Specials earlier this month. But according to Andrews Federal Credit Union’s website home page, there actually is a little good news:

When they go low, we go high. Enjoy new increased Share Certificate rates.

That announcement is welcome news, considering the recent downward rate spiral. While Andrews Federal has raised rates on all its Share Certificates, the 24-month Jumbo is the most competitive, offering a 2.15% APY following a 65 bps increase. Surprisingly, Andrews Federal’s Jumbo Share Certificates only require a $10k minimum opening deposit.

The 24-month Jumbo is also available as an IRA Certificate (Traditional, Roth, CESA), earning the same APY with the same funding requirements.

As stated in the fine print on the Share Certificates Rate page, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:

If your account has an original maturity of 24 months or
greater, we will charge a penalty equal to 180 days of dividends.


Headquartered in Suitland, Maryland, Andrews Federal Credit Union’s field of membership includes virtually all U.S. citizens and resident aliens who have a valid Social Security number.

Good luck getting an employee of Andrews to pick up the phone.

They are really hard to get a hold of. It's kind of weird, as I never experienced that with any other bank ... it's like they have one phone person to handle the entire world.

I seem to recall that, a few years ago, people reported having better experiences joining Andrews and getting info by calling branches rather than the call center.
  |     |   Comment #4
The way I found easiest was leaving a callback number when first given the option, as that fellow called back within 30 minutes or so. If you wait until you hit the call center and then give a callback number, then that can be 1-2 days for a banker to call you back. At least that was my experience ... again, very weird. Plus side though is once you get a bank person, they seem to know their stuff, had no problems with them.

I just got thru within 10 minutes.

Andrews had a system conversion this month from the 4th to the 10th, so everyone
was calling about the online banking (not necessarily for CDs).

It’s time to be raising LIQUID cash as in local checking accounts and cash on hand . Ask for NEW $100 ‘s . The financial system could be in danger of locking up . Those 7yr cd’s taken out at Andrews a few years ago looking good right now. I heard they pumped a trillion into the banking system today to avoid lock up.
