Pawtucket Credit Union (RI) Boosts 25-Month CD Rate

POSTED ON BY

Deal Summary: 25-month CD, 3.00% APY, $1k minimum deposit. 15-month Easy Access CD, 2.00% APY, two penalty-free withdrawals, $5k minimum deposit.

Availability: Residents of Rhode Island and nearby communities in Massachusetts and Connecticut.

When I wrote about Pawtucket Credit Union’s (Pawtucket CU) 25-month CD in April, I expressed the hope that its 2.75% APY would last longer than it did when it was originally offered in December. Perhaps the rates fairy was listening, because not only did the rate last for more than a month, it was increased this week to 3.00% APY. The 25-month CD requires a $1k minimum deposit, with no stated balance cap.

Pretty strong rate here for a 2 year CD versus what we have seen. Too bad I'm not in the market area. Good to see some better rates come in this week across many time frames even if most are local deals.

Wow! 3% on a short term CD with 2 early withdrawals allowed. Too bad I don't live there. Maybe some other banks will follow their lead and let us withdraw funds penalty free. I would lock up long term CD's if that option was available.
