USAA 2 Year CD @ 3.25%
I just got an e-mail from USAA which is offering its banking customers a two-year CD at a rate of 3.25%, which is one of the better rates I've seen for this maturity recently. This is not listed on their web site and you need to either get the e-mail (and click the link attached) or call (800) 531-8132 and mention "CEO CD" to get the deal. Minimum is $1000 and the e-mail says the deal is good through May 31, 2009.
No connection other than as a satisfied customer. Some of you who do business with them looking for a two-year parking place may want to consider this.
[edit to add: this offer seems to be limited to those who can qualify for their insurance products.]
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
