6.17% 18-Month CD at a New Mexico CU (First Financial).


Update 8/1/07: This CD special has ended.

First Financial Credit Union is offering a special 6.17% APY 18-month certificate. The minimum deposit is $1,000 for a regular certificate and $500 minimum for an IRA.

Their membership webpage states that membership in First Financial is open to almost anyone in New Mexico. Membership requires a minimum deposit of $5 into your Primary Savings account.

Branches are located in the New Mexico cities of Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Zuni, Pine Hill, Gallup, Portales and Farmington. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 68244). It has $319.9 million in assets and 45,346 members.

I'm glad I was able to find a deal in New Mexico. I haven't found many bank deals from there. The last CD deal I posted on was a 6% CD at Kirtland FCU in December.

I called August 1, 2007. This special ended yesterday, per a bank representative.

Thanks for the comment. I thought this one might end soon since the rate was so good. I've updated the post with this info.
