Generally we don’t really post CD’s, but these seem like an OK deal. I assume there is no hard pull or ChexSystems inquiry done for these, but not 100% sure. There are other high interest accounts that earn at a higher rate, but the advantage of these CD’s is that they have no requirements. Let me know your thoughts on this deal in the comments. Should we cover CDs? You need to be a NFCU member to be eligible for these, more details on that here.
