South Texas Deal On 2-, 3-Year CDs

texas quarterSavers in southern Texas should take advantage of two strong CD rates at Security First Credit Union.

With a minimum deposit of $1,000, it pays:

  • 1.36% APY for 24-month CDs.
  • 1.78% APY for 36-month CDs.

Both beat the top nationally available offer for their terms on our CD Rates Leaderboard, but the 36-month CD does so by more than a quarter of a percentage point.

The rates increase slightly – three one-hundredths of a percentage point – with a minimum deposit of $50,000.

You have to be a member of Security First Credit Union to purchase these certificates of deposit. Membership is available to those who live, work, worship or study in the four counties that comprise the Rio Grande Valley: Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr and Willacy.

Membership at Security First Credit Union requires a $5 deposit in a share savings account.

Members can buy CDs online, over the phone or in person at one of 15 branches throughout the Rio Grande Valley.

Those are in Brownsville, Edinburg, Harlingen, McAllen, Mission, Palmview, Pharr, San Benito and Weslaco.
