Tulsa Federal Credit Union (Tulsa FCU) is celebrating its 75th Anniversary by offering a limited-time 18-month Certificate, which earns 2.75% APY. The minimum deposit is $1k of new money, with no stated balance cap. While Tulsa FCU offers an additional 10 bps on its regular Jumbo Certificates ($100k+), the 2.75% APY applies to all 75th Anniversary 18-month Certificate deposit levels.
As stated in the Truth In Savings disclosure, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:
If your account has a stated term greater than 12 months but less than or equal to 24 months: We may charge a penalty equal to 120 days of dividends on the amount withdrawn.
I have to say I’ve never seen a statement quite like this one:
Not a member or don’t qualify for membership? No problem.
You can still participate in the promotion at 0.50% lower
than the advertised Member rate – that’s still pretty good!
Thanks to the DA reader who emailed me news of this special.
