Deal Summary: 13-month Share Certificate, 3.00% APY, new money, $1k minimum deposit

Availability: Residents of nine southeast Texas counties.

Associated Credit Union of Texas (ACU of Texas) has unveiled a 13-month Share Certificate earning 3.00% APY. This limited-time offer requires a minimum $1k opening deposit of new money. While the Credit Union’s Rates page lists a Jumbo version of its Share Certificates that earn an additional 10 bps for deposits of at least $50k, the 13-month Jumbo ($50k minimum) earns the same 3.00% APY.

According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty is $25 or all interest earned, whichever is greater. Partial withdrawals are permitted, as are early closures.

Premier Checking

In April 2017, ACU of Texas introduced its Premier Checking account. The initial 3.00% APY on qualifying balances up to $20k is still in effect. Qualifying balances of $20k+ earn 0.05% APY, as do non-qualifying balances.
