I invested in 5 of the 72 month add-on CD last fall.. As the other poster noted there was no discussion of the add-on feature (or any other feature) being term limited.
I called them after getting the notice and they told me my disclosures included the change of terms provision. I looked, and the terms she read to me are not on my disclosures. She pretended this was some kind of mistake. It clearly was no error.
I will be pressing this issue with the credit union. I don't believe it is legal to unilaterally change the terms. If it is legal, I have a few I would like to change!
Signal in 2019 offered a very attractive WOW Promo CD for a 24 month term, at about 3% with an add on feature. Their advertisement stated - Add More Anytime and "unlimited deposits anytime during the term". Well last month this changed. They stopped allowing additional deposits (as noted in the forum). After complaints from customers, they changed their terms and are only allowing deposits for an additional 30 days. After that, no additional deposits allowed for the rest of the CDs term. With the Fed changing interest rates lower and Treasury rates going done, it is understandable that Signal's CD rate is now very attractive. And just when customers want to transfer in funds, they cancel the feature. Thus, I would recommend that no matter how nice the folks may be at this CU, that you can not trust them to not change the terms of your CD agreements. For further information on this, see the forum discussion on Signal Financial Credit Union.
