National Deal: 49-Month CD Pays 2%

hand dropping a coin into a pink piggy bankNASA Federal Credit Union has sky-high 49-month CD rates available to savers everywhere.

It pays 2.00% APY with a $5,000 minimum deposit of new money.

That’s nearly as good as the top nationally available 60-month CD rate on our CD Rates Leaderboard, which has settled in at 2.15% APY.

According to the fine print on the website, this special is scheduled to expire on Feb. 28. So don’t dawdle.

You have to be a member of NASA Federal Credit Union to buy these certificates of deposit, but anyone can qualify for membership by first joining the American Consumer Council. Membership in the American Consumer Council is free, and you can apply on the credit union’s website.

You don’t have to jump through that hoop if you’re an employee or retiree of NASA or the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Division, are an employee or member of one of the credit union’s 900 partner companies or associations, or are a relative or household member of a current member.

Membership in NASA Federal Credit Union requires a $5 deposit in a share savings account.

Members can buy CDs online or in person at one of the credit union’s 10 branches.

Those are in Annapolis, Bowie, Columbia, Greenbelt, Lanham, Rockville and Upper Marlboro, Md.; Falls Church, Va.; and Washington, D.C.
