Finally … a “spooktacular” rate!

Suncoast Credit Union (Suncoast CU) is currently offering 6.25% APY on its 11-month Jumbo IRA Certificate. While not as eye-catching as the Jumbo IRA rate, the 11-month Jumbo Share Certificate nonetheless has a competitive 6.00% APY. Both the Jumbo IRA Certificate and Jumbo Share Certificate require a minimum opening deposit of $100k.

The non-jumbo 11-month IRA Certificate and 11-month Share Certificate have APYs 25-bps lower and can be opened with a minimum $500 deposit.

As stated on the Share Certificate Rates page, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:

A penalty will or may be imposed for early withdrawals: 90 days of dividends on terms of 12 months or less; 180 days of dividends on terms longer than 12 months.

If the account has not yet earned enough dividends or if the dividends have already been paid, the penalty will be deducted from the principal.

Penalties are only assessed on the amount withdrawn. If the withdrawn amount is below the required minimum balance, the share certificate must be closed.

Takes patience to open an account online. VERY SLOW! Customer service on phones are very good though. Wish I knew how long the special will be available. Going to take some time for me to do a roll-over. 6.25% worth the time though. Best I have found.
