Our Verdict

Not as good as the six month 3.25% APY offer they had earlier in the year, but rates have dropped a lot since then. Shame this one is only for three months, but still one of the best rates (if not the best) available.

To anyone who signs up for this, I suggest you immediately contact Andrews to opt out of all Andrews and affiliate marketing materials. I’ve never received so much junk mail (e.g. life insurance offers) from a bank, and upon contacting them to remove me, they informed me it would take up to 6 months to have my info purged from all marketing lists.

Pretty sad for credit union.

Typo in bullet #5 (missing “A”).

Signed up for an account this morning and registered for online access. Definitely the easiest/quickest out of all credit unions I’ve joined.

isn’t the CIT bank deal better

Considering, right now have CFG with 2.3% so an extra .7% on $150k or so would be around $250

Not really worth doing. This is just bringing money in with hopes that people leave it there afterwards.

I guess you can deposit your $228 somewhere else. Me I am in, as Andrews is great and with a large deposit the interest is worth it

Even if you bring over $100k that’s only about $750 in interest vs the $500 you’d make just leaving it at 2% elsewhere. So about $250 more, which is on par with a decent bank sign-up bonus. And then you have to factor in costs of transferring money in and out and/or waiting for those transfers to clear.

A deal is a deal, but only lasting 3-months is pretty disappointing for a ~1% bump in APR.

When they offered this back in 2016 they offered a follow-up deal for those who had transferred.

But you are right. Don’t transfer. Banks charge huge ACH fees, and why move the money if you can get 33% more interest. There really isn’t any point.

Lou, I am thinking about doing this deal as well Can you share more of your experience with Andrews FCU with us? How easy was it to ACH money in and out of the account? is there a daily and monthly ACH limit? Was it difficult to opt out the automatic renewal at the end of term? Thanks!

Andrews has been great with my accounts. When cd matures just put back into savings or checking

Question on the automatic renew after 3 months – is it possible to opt out of the automatic renewal and take the money out after 3 months?

Thanks!
