If you are new to CD’s (certificate of deposits), just want to get your feet wet, or have a small amount of money to invest then Navy Credit Federal Union has a great starter certificate you may be able to take advantage of.
We have been noticing that credit unions have been offering better deals on certificate of deposits then banks have (see Northeast Community CU 2.50% APY on a 12 Month CD). Although Navy Federals CD rates are not the best they do have a great starter package.
Check out the nations Best CD Rates.
It is called their EasyStart Certificate and here are the details.
- 12 month term
- 1.15% APY
- Only a $100 Minimum Deposit
With a $100 minimum deposit almost anyone, new to CD’s or not, can take advantage of this deal. Most of the best 12 month CD rates we see have minimum deposits in the thousands.
So if you are new to certificates and do not have much money to get started this NFCU EasyStart Certificate may be a great introduction to CDs for you.
