Iowa-based DuTrac Community Credit Union (DuTrac CCU) has added a 48-month Bump Up Certificate Special, which earns 3.25% APY. This limited-time offer can be opened with a $5k minimum deposit, with no stated balance cap.
The 48-month Bump Up Certificate Special is also available as an IRA (Traditional, Roth, CESA), earning the same APY with the same funding requirements.
As stated in the fine print on the Rates page, the "EcoPlus bonus (an additional 0.25%) does not apply." The Bump Up option allows members to,
increase the 48-month CD bump up rate one time during the original term to that of the current DuTrac 48-month standard CD rate. The newly elected rate will go into effect for the remaining life of the original term. Members responsible for communicating bump up rate request.
15-Month Certificate Special
At the beginning of the month, DuTrac CCU added a 15-month Certificate Special. Like the 48-month Certificate, the 15-month Certificate Special requires a minimum $5k opening deposit, but the similarity between the two ends there. There is no Bump Up option for the 15-month and its 2.65% APY isn’t that competitive, with nearly 30 other available CDs offering a higher rate.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty on any CD with a term greater than 12 months is 180 days interest on the amount being withdrawn.
