iWall St. Journali CUs among best rate deals
MADISON, Wis. (7/24/12)--In an article Saturday, The Wall Street Journal highlighted credit unions for the favorable rates they pay on certificates of deposits in comparison to banks.

An analysis of 8,300 credit unions and banks conducted for The Wall Street Journal shows that CUs often beat out banks for better rates.

The University of Iowa CU, Iowa City, Iowa, offers a 1.75% rate on a 22-month certificate, and a 2.5% rate on 44-month certficate, with a 0.2 percentage bonus for deposits of more than $250,000.

American Airlines FCU offers a five-year certficate at 2.27%.

Connexus CU, Wausau, Wis., pays 2% for a five-year certificate to members with active checking accounts.
