True Sky Credit Union (OK) Offers 1-Year Grand Opening CD Special


Deal Summary: 1-year CD, 1.75% APY, $1k min/$100k max deposit, new money.

Availability: Residents of eight central Oklahoma counties, but CD must be opened at the new Northeast Oklahoma City branch.

Now through July 31, 2021, True Sky Credit Union (True Sky) is offering a 1-year CD earning an outstanding 1.75% APY. The opening deposit requires a minimum of $1k of new money. The maximum deposit is $100k. New money is defined as “funds must be from an institution other than True Sky Credit Union.” As part of the celebration of the grand opening of the newest True Sky branch, the 1-year CD must be opened at the Northeast branch, located at 5029 N. Martin Luther King Avenue in Oklahoma City.

True Sky continues to offer very competitive rates on its standard CDs. I reviewed these in March, and those rates are still in effect. They're not outstanding like this grand opening special, but they are options if you're unable to take advantage of this special or if you have additional funds above $100k.
