$75 Checking Account Bonus and Some CD Deals at a SoCal Credit Union (Visterra)


Visterra Credit Union is having a new-branch promotion with some good deals at its new Stoneridge Branch. One of the deals is a $75 cash bonus or an iPod Shuffle for opening a checking account with a minimum of $250. Offer expires on 3/15/08.

This special doesn't seem to be listed at the credit union's website. It was advertised in Friday's Press-Enterprise newspaper. The ad is available online here. According to the ad, the offers are available only at the Stoneridge location and expire 3/15/08. You must be a new checking account customer. I don't see any requirements about direct deposit.

Some of their other deals for this promotion include: $25 Gas Card for their VISA Platinum Rewards credit card, 4% APY 5-month CD with a $5,000 minimum deposit, and 4.15% APY 12-month IRA CD with a $2,000 minimum deposit. For those who don't live near the Stoneridge branch, they also have a Featured CD special with a yield of 3.95% and a term of 5 months. The minimum deposit is $10,000, and this should be available at all of their branches.

Membership is open to anyone who lives, works, or attends school in Riverside County. Please refer to their Membership page for the full details. The membership page states that there's a small one-time fee to join, but it doesn't state the amount of the fee.

The new Stoneridge Branch is located in Moreno Valley. Other branches are located in Corona, Murrieta and Riverside, California. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 68390).
