- Account must be funded with new funds or funds deposited less than 30 days prior to opening.

- The credit union is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration.
- Additionally insured by American Share Insurance.
- An Equal Housing Lender.
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
This CD doesn’t have any fees to worry about, but you are charged a $2 membership fee to join.
4% is obviously a great rate on a one year CD, it’s 2% and a bit higher than standard basic savings account rates. The $4,000 maximum isn’t great though. If you compare that to a 2% account you’re basically earning an extra $80 over the year. Personally I think it makes more sense to do a bank account bonus instead of opening a CD like this. There are also a few other accounts that are open to those of the Christian faith only:
- Brightpeak Financial $200 Savings Bonus – Nationwide [Excluding AR, GA, NV, OK. Must Also Be Christian]
- [Must Be A Member of A Christian Ministry] Christian Community Credit Union $200 Checking Account Bonus + 4% CD
Not sure what the fascination is with the 4% CDs, must be a Christian thing. If anybody has any experience with this credit union, please share it in the comments below. Friendly reminder to keep your comments respectful and polite.
