Arizona Special On 15- And 25-Month CDs

To celebrate its Diamond Anniversary, Vantage West Credit Union is offering two CD gems to lucky Arizona savers.

Based in Tucson and serving Phoenix as well, Vantage West is paying:

  • 1.50% APY on 15-month CDs.
  • 2.00% APY on 25-month CDs (for residents of Cochise and Pima counties).
  • 2.25% APY on 25-month CDs (for residents of Maricopa and Pinal counties).

But time is of the essence on this deal: All of these rates expire March 31.

On our CD Rates Leaderboard of the best nationally available yields, 12-month CDs currently top out at 1.21% APY, while the leading 24-month CD pays 1.35% APY.

What really makes the 25-month Vantage West certificate shine is that earning 2.00% or more on our Leaderboard requires committing to a 60-month CD, where the very top national rate is 2.25% APY.

These anniversary CDs require a minimum deposit of $1,000 in new money, meaning funds not already on deposit with Vantage West.

In addition, only one anniversary certificate is offered per membership account.

As with all credit unions, membership is required. Vantage West offers eligibility to anyone who lives, works, worships, attends school or volunteers in (as well as all businesses located in):

  • Maricopa, Pima, Pinal and Cochise counties.
  • Gila River Indian Community Reservation.
  • Arizona’s “Copper Basin” Area.

In addition, Vantage West extends membership eligibility to most active, retired, separated, civilian employees and military dependents of U.S. Armed Forces members who are or were stationed at or near Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and other parts of southern Arizona.

Joining Vantage West can be done online, as can buying the 15-month anniversary CD.

However, the 25-month special certificate must be purchased by phone, by mail or in person at one of Vantage West’s 17 branches in Tucson (12), Phoenix (2) or one each in Casa Grande, San Manuel and Tombstone.
