Langley Federal Credit Union Adds Competitive 22-Month Promo CD

POSTED ON BY

Deal Summary: 22-month Promo Certificate, 2.75% APY, $500 minimum deposit and no maximum deposit.

Availability: Easy membership requirement

In the past 15 months, Virginia-based Langley Federal Credit Union (Langley FCU) has offered seven competitive limited-time Promo Certificates. The eighth and most recent Promo Certificate is a 22-month that earns 2.75% APY. This limited-time offer can be opened with a $500 minimum deposit of new money, with no balance cap. New money is defined as “funds not currently on deposit with Langley Federal Credit Union.”

Previous Promo Certificates were available only to current members or new members in Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, but the 22-month has no such restrictions: all new members (regardless of residency status) and current members can open a 22-month Promo Certificate, as long as the new money requirement is met.

The fine print on the landing page lists the 22-month Promo Certificate details, including,

  • The minimum balance to open the certificate is $500. No maximum deposit.
  • Limited time offer.
  • To qualify for the offer, certificates must be funded completely with new deposits. New deposits are defined as funds not currently on deposit with Langley Federal Credit Union.
  • Not eligible for Active Rewards rate enhancement and cannot be combined with any other promotional offer.

If you have been reading the Langley FCU blog posts for the past year, the next sentence will probably sound familiar. There are 11 different Disclosures on Langley FCU’s website, but an online Truth-in-Savings disclosure for CDs continues to be non-existent. The following information was provided by CSR.

  • Individuals joining Langley FCU must first establish a membership, fund the new Langley Savings Account with the monies to be used to open the Promo Certificate, and then call 757.827.5328 to open the Promo Certificate over the phone.
  • The Early Withdrawal Penalty is 180 days interest on the amount being withdrawn, with partial withdrawals allowed as long as a $500 minimum balance is maintained.
  • Maturing funds can be distributed by cashier’s check or wire transfer, or transferred to a Langley FCU liquid account (checking, savings, money market account). Once the funds are in another Langley FCU account, you can initiate an ACH transfer from an outside institution. Outgoing ACH transfers cannot be initiated from any Langley FCU account.
  • There is a 21 (yes, twenty-one) calendar day grace period before the 22-month Promotional Certificate renews as fixed rate 24-month Certificate.

Langley Federal Credit Union is on a mission to improve its 300,000 members lives by helping them save, borrow, and spend wisely. Through its Affordable Banking initiatives, it has been able to document just how significant those savings are.

On October 1, 2021, Langley reduced fees for non-sufficient funds from $30 to $10. Langley’s Courtesy Pay, a service where it covers the transaction when the member is short on funds, was reduced from $30 to $20. These are not small changes. Approximately 40,000 members will save more than $4.5 million in fees annually because of these changes.

Langley has also introduced a loan rebate program that returns 10% of interest on auto, boat, recreational vehicle, or personal loans directly into members’ savings accounts. Since 2019, Langley has rebated more than $3 million to members.

You think your application has been accepted. Credit check and 4 questions are all good. Computer says you have passed. Then find out "review" is required. The kind appropriate for a mortgage or other very large borrowing, just to make deposits. Said review including TWO forms of government identification such as a passport, which, despite having been an officer of the United States with a security clearance I have never needed before. Either nonregional people are put through a wringer or I must have a Black name. Beware any CU requiring an "Underwriter" for simple joining!
