National Deal On 3-Year CDs: 1.75%

hand holding a fistful of moneyWhile we’re not typically big on relationship rates, Connexus Credit Union has 36-month CD rates worth the extra effort.

It pays 1.75% APY with a $10,000 minimum deposit and an active checking account.

The top nationally available 3-year CD rate on our CD Rates Leaderboard dropped to 1.40% APY right before Thanksgiving and hasn’t budged since.

An active checking account requires at least one direct deposit and 10 payments by debit card or check a month. Connexus Credit’s Union’s best checking option is its Xtraordinary Checking, which pays 1.75% APY on deposits up to $25,000.

There’s no minimum balance requirement on the Connexus checking account, and you’ll be rebated ATM fees up to $25 a month.

To purchase these certificates of deposit, you have to be a member of Connexus Credit Union. Membership is open to anyone who joins the Connexus Association, which supports educational and charitable efforts.

A donation of $5 or more will get you into the association, and a $5 deposit in a savings account is required to join the credit union.

You can skip this step if you’re an employee, retiree or family member of Liberty Mutual Insurance nationwide or Wausau, Wis.-based Aspirus Inc., Marshfield Clinic or UMR, as well as a student, alum or employee of Northcentral Technical College.

Members can buy CDs online or in person. There are 11 branches in Wausau and Weston, Wis.; Dover and Portsmouth, N.H.; and Fairfield, Ohio.
