Solid CD rate at Navy Federal

For anyone eligible, Navy Federal is running a CD special of 2% for 20 months. This is limited to $20k per member, but it is way above market.

They also do a special rate of 3% on a 12 month CD but it has a $3,000 limit.

And they require a direct deposit to get the special rate. The 2% for 20 month deal is no strings attached.

Thanks for posting info on 20 month cd. I had seem 12 month deal but it had strings attached.. The 20 month looks appealing.

I never noticed the direct deposit thing. However, it didn't matter because I have direct deposit with NFCU. I've renewed this offer twice. I guess I'll be out of luck when I retire in three weeks and no longer have direct deposit from employer.

NFCU has consistently had excellent CD rates recently. I glammed on to a 30 month CD @ 2.50% in December.

Thanks Brewer
This CD special is new and has an interesting wrinkle, you can start with only$20 and add more at any time (subject to 20k max). That works great for me but too bad it s not available as an IRA.

I contacted NFCU today on another matter so while I had a CSR on the line I asked how long this special CD rate would last and she stated "we hope it runs at least through the month of August". I decided to not take any chances so I opened a small certificate to preserve the rate and I will bump up the deposit when another certificate matures.

Not sure what they mean by 20k max balance. If the interest brings the balance over 20k does the excess still earn 2%?
