Now through November 30, 2019, Heartland Credit Union (Heartland) is offering a 15-month CD Special, which earns 2.40% APY. The minimum opening deposit is $10k of new money, with no stated balance cap. According to the fine print on the Savings Rates page, this offer is subject to change.
Heartland CDs come with a one-time bump option.
If rates go up during your term we’ll let you increase your rate one time by adding $1,000 to your certificate. Your maturity date will remain the same and you will earn the higher rate for the remaining certificate term.
According to CSR, the Early Withdrawal Penalty is six months of dividends, with only one early withdrawal permitted.
There is a 10-day grace period before the 15-month CD Special automatically renews as a 12-month CD.
