FYI: Connexus CU Now Allows Lower-Rate CD Holders To FLIP To Higher Cds Without EWP - 12/3/2022

I was planning to early withdraw some CDs I opened 6 mon ago, take the EWP and move into the 4.85% 15-mon CD. Yesterday I was told over the phone that since the money is not leaving the house, EWP will be waived. This is something new because I checked a few months back and was told the EWP stands no matter where the money is going. Just want to share this good news.

Great Experience

Since interest rates had more than doubled since I opened my 2.2% CD's, I requested an early termination and knew I would be charged a 3 month early withdrawal penalty. Instead, Connexus offered me a 4.85% rate and they waived the early withdrawal penalty. Unbelievable! Yes, I took that deal.

Decent Experience

Posted by: |

According to their CSR, due to overwhelming demand, they are 72 hours behind.

Opening a CD account:
• Soft pull w/Trans Union
• Require a copy of social security card, although not listed
• Disregard their email, you need to be proactive as no one contacts you during approval process.
• Maximum ACH transfer is $250,000 for opening a CD account. Over that amount needs to be wired in.
• Your membership number is not the same as your account number

STAY AWAY FROM THIS BANK

I wanted to invest 100000.00 in one of there cds, said i had to join their credit union for 5.00 and open a savings account to open the cd. I am retired and trying to move money from saving account to profitable cds. Should be simple you would think. I chatted with several people to ask about status of my membership. got disconnected each time. I have a credit score of 842, no balances open but show i do have credit cards, house paid off for 15 years, paid cash for car. They declined me thru a letter. Unbelievable, I was giving them money. I was even thinking of putting another 150000.00 in another cd, They really do not know how to treat people, again i was giving them money.
