Minneapolis Deal: 5-Year CDs Pay 2.20%

Hiway Federal Credit Union offers different CD rates for different minimum deposits.Hiway Federal Credit Union has a few decent CD rates that are even better if you pony up a higher minimum deposit.

The best are the 60-month certificates, which pay:

  • 2.00% APY with a $500 minimum deposit.
  • 2.10% APY with a $10,000 minimum deposit.
  • 2.20% APY with a $25,000 minimum deposit.

We lamented last week that the 60-month term on our CD Rates Leaderboard hasn’t seen 2% since the first week in January. It’s been 1.91% APY since mid-June, with no budging.

So if you can grab one of these deals from Hiway, you’ll be earning well more than what you can get from the best nationally available CD.

Also, this credit union’s 36-month rate matches the deal available to savers nationwide — 1.50% APY with a $10,000 minimum deposit. Its best rate in this term is 1.60% APY with a $25,000 minimum deposit.

Its 48-month rate starts out at 1.70% APY with a $500 minimum deposit, moves to 1.80% APY with a $10,000 minimum deposit and hits 1.90% APY with a $25,000 minimum deposit.

You have to be a member of Hiway Federal Credit Union to purchase these certificates of deposit.

Membership is available to those who live, work, worship or attend school in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, as well as employees of the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, the State of Minnesota, and other governmental agencies and select employee groups detailed on the website.

Family and household members of people who qualify for membership can also join.

Membership requires a $5 deposit into a share savings account.

Members can buy CDs over the phone, if the funds are available in their account, or at branch. There are two locations in St. Paul and a third in Minneapolis, at Fort Snelling.
