Maryland Deal On 30-Month CD Rates

Fort Meade Community Credit Union has special 30-month CD rates for its members.

It’s paying 3.55% APY with a $10,000 minimum deposit.
Fort Meade Community Credit Union is paying 3.55% on a special 30-month CD.
That’s a point more than you can earn with the best nationally available 36-month CD rates, and a half-point more than the top nationally available 60-month CDs are paying.

But you must be a member to take advantage of this deal, and these certificates of deposit can only be purchased at Fort Meade Community Credit Union’s main office on the Maryland military base, or at its branch in Odenton.

Membership is open to anyone who lives or works within 25 miles of one of those offices, as well as to the families of all military and civilian employees attached to Fort Meade, regardless of where they live.

Compare these returns with the best CD rates from scores of banks in our extensive database.

    Still can’t understand why this web-site keeps listing bank and credit union CD’s that are not available to www / us.

    Cliff: It’s because most of the very best deals are local deals right now. We constantly update our rankings of the best nationally available rates for all sorts of CDs, checking and savings accounts. But we’d be missing a big boat if we ignored banks and credit unions offering the very best deals. We hope it reminds and encourages our readers to check their local banks and CUs before investing.

    It should probably be noted in the post that Ft. Meade Community Credit Union is NOT federally insured. The text at the bottom of the homepage says that it is insured by a private community, and on Savings Rates page they say explicitly that they are not federally insured.

    I live within the required 25 miles from this Credit Union to open an account. I went in this morning to acquire this CD but they refused to honor the 3.55% rate. I took in a copy of this article. So much for this Credit Union, thanks for nothing.

    Todd: Sorry you went to all that trouble. We just spoke with Fort Meade Credit Union and this special was ended on Nov. 18. This is why was always recommend that you call, or check the bank or credit union Web site, before going to all of the trouble you just did. Posts like these generate such a response from savers that banks and credit unions often end them within a few days of us telling you about them. One deal was ended just hours after we alerted readers to it.
