Credit Union West in Arizona is offering some very attractive rates on CDs and rewards checking accounts for those living in Maricopa or Yavapai counties.

A user just posted a comment about very attractive rates at Credit Union West in Arizona. I checked it out and the deals look pretty good. They are offering:

  • A 60-month CD that pays 2.90% APY on balances from $10,000 - 49,999 and 2.95% APY on balances $50,000+.
  • A 60-month IRA CD that pays 3.15% APY on balances from $10,000 - 49,999 and 3.20% APY on balances $50,000+.
  • A checking account that pays 2.51% APY on balances up to $10,000 as long as you meet the minimum transaction requirements. To receive the rate a customer must have at least 15 debit card transactions each monthly billing cycle, be enrolled to receive eStatements, and have at least one direct deposit post and settle each month.

Both the 60 month regular CD rate and the IRA CD rate are amongst the highest rates in the country for that CD term. The 2.51% rewards checking rate is not the highest, but it is still a good competitive offer.

The catch is that you must live in either Maricopa or Yavapai counties or have a relative who is already a member of the credit union. If you don't happen to fulfill either of these criteria, then take a look at some of the credit unions in your area. Or, take a look at Pentagon Federal Credit Union which anyone can join and which is offering a 60-month CD for 3.04% APY.

    Very helpful! Would have been nice to know before the bottom that I need to be a resident of one of two counties in Arizona that nobody has ever heard of.
