4.00% 7-Month ($2.5K Max) at Technology Credit Union in CA on International Credit Union Day - Local Only


Technology Credit Union has a CD special called the Celebration Certificate. It's only available on October 15, 2009 which is International Credit Union Day. It's a 4.00% APY 225-day certificate. Unfortunately, the maximum deposit is $2,500 with a limit of one certificate per member. Minimum deposit is $1,000.

If a husband and wife both put in the maximum deposit, they'll earn about $60 over what would be earned if $5K were deposited into a 2% 7-month CD. At least there doesn't seem to be any checking account requirement for this special.

Membership is open to those who live, work, worship or attend school in any of the following California counties: Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Cruz and San Francisco. You can also be eligible via select employer groups and via relatives. Please see their membership page for details. Membership requires a $25 deposit into a savings account and can be opened online.

Branches are located in Cupertino, Fremont, Milpitas, Moutain View, San Jose, Santa Clara and Sunnyvale. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 68383).

Thanks to the reader Sree who mentioned this special in the bank deals hub page.

Note, the promo page makes it look like you can extend the term to 270 days, but I called and was told that the term is only for 6 months.

My last report on this credit union was back in September 2006 when it was offering a 5.80% 10-month CD.

Membership is open to those...
