Financial One Credit Union (Financial One) is currently offering a 24-month Share Certificate Special (2.40% APY). The minimum deposit is $1k, with no stated balance cap. CSR stated this is a limited-time offering, but no specific end-date has been set.
The 24-month Share Certificate Special is also available as an IRA (Traditional and Roth) earning the same APY, with the same funding requirements.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty is a substantial "half of the interest that would be earned over the life of the CD, no matter when the withdrawal is made."
