San Antonio Deal On Special 40-Month CDs

Man inserting coin in a piggy bank.Firstmark Credit Union in San Antonio is offering a promotional 40-month CD that competes nicely with the best nationally available 3-year certificates of deposit.

Unfortunately, this deal isn’t available to everyone, but savers who joined the credit union before it restricted membership to local residents (or San Antonio residents themselves) can take advantage of this offer.

This CD special beats the top 36-month offer on our CD Rates Leaderboard. Intervest National Bank leads the term with a 1.45% offer.

Firstmark pays 1.50% APY with a $500 minimum deposit.

Everyone who lives, works or attends school in Bexar County, Texas, along with their family members, can join Firstmark. Students or public school and college employees in 13 surrounding counties also can join the credit union.

Firstmark once offered membership to anyone who joined one of a number of local parks groups, essentially making its CDs open to anyone. That’s no longer an option.

To join the credit union, you’ll first need to open a Smart Savings Account with a minimum deposit of $5.

Members can buy CDs over the phone or at one of Firstmark Credit Union’s 11 branches in San Antonio.

For more information, visit or call 800-683-1211.

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

UPDATE 8/5/2014: Firstmark has increased the 40-month special rate to 1.85% APY.

UPDATE 4/4/2014: Firstmark has increased the 40-month special rate to 1.80% APY.
