Availability: Residents of Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

Thanks to the DA reader who informed me about this Black Friday CD special available at BHCU (formerly Boeing Helicopters Credit Union). CD specials have been rare this year, so it’s nice to see this Black Friday CD special even though it isn’t widely available and there is a small maximum deposit.

Available on November 27, 2020 only, the 6-month Certificate offers two rates: 2.70% APY or 5.38% APY. The 6-month Certificate requires a $500 minimum opening deposit, with a balance cap of $2,020. New money (defined as funds not currently on deposit with BHCU) is required and funding must be completed by end of business on December 1, 2020. There is a limit of one certificate per member.

As stated in the fine print on the Black Friday landing page,

To obtain the 5.38% APY Certificate you must have an active iSAVE Savings account. An active iSAVE Savings account is funded with new money only (not currently on deposit at BHCU), has a monthly automatic monthly deposit (ACH), does not exceed one (1) withdrawal in a month, and is enrolled in online banking and E-statements.

Deposits at BHCU are fully insured up to $500,000: at least $250,000 by the NCUA and $250,000 by Excess Share Insurance, the nation’s largest provider of excess share insurance since 1993.
