Save More with a Certificate Account

Rates are rising, and that means there’s no better time than the present to maximize your extra savings. If you’ve got $500 or more just sitting around, consider opening a Certificate Account to save more with better rates.1

Earn better rates, worry-free.

Some credit unions call them Share Certificates. Banks have a similar product called Certificates of Deposit. We call them Certificate Accounts. No matter what term you’re using, you’re on the right track if you’re considering a Certificate Account as a way to save more. Why? Certificate Accounts earn higher rates without the risk associated with other investment options such as stocks and mutual funds.

Let’s say you have some extra cash that you don’t need to use for a while, and you’re looking to earn better rates. That’s where a Certificate Account comes in. With Annual Percentage Yields up to 3.90% for a five-year Certificate Account, you’ll save more compared to your Basic Savings.2 For example, if you put $2,000 into a five-year Certificate Account at 3.90% APY, you’d earn $421.63 on that money — just from letting it sit and grow. The best part? There’s no risk of investment loss. Earn higher rates without higher risk. That’s a win-win.

Avoid fees by choosing the right term length.

The one caveat? You can’t touch the money while it grows for the agreed-upon term, or you’ll pay a fee for early withdrawal. At Grow, you can choose a custom term length, anywhere from six months to five years, which makes this account flexible for different situations. Need the money a year from now? Choose a shorter term length. Have lots of time? Choose a longer term length to earn even higher rates. Check out our current rates now.
