GoBankingRates Picks EECU, RBFCU as Tops for CDs and Auto Loans
Wednesday, October 28, 2015 6:55 AM

In honor of International Credit Union Day, Oct. 15, announced their Top 15 Credit Unions, and two of the 15 are Cornerstone Credit Union League members.

Best Credit Union for CDs:  EECU

If you’re looking for a credit union with the best certificates of deposit, GoBankingRates recommends EECU. This credit union offers rates from 0.30 percent APY to 2.00 percent APY on CD terms of three months to five years. Its minimum required deposit is $1,000.

In addition to its traditional certificates, EECU also offers Bump Rate CDs, which allow accountholders to earn higher rates after the first six months of their terms. While a CD usually locks in a rate for the entirety of its term, a bump rate gives you the chance to benefit if rates rise during the CD’s term.

EECU is based in Fort Worth, Texas, and with 10 branch locations serves more than 170,000 members who live and work in the city. The credit union also serves surrounding counties, including Tarrant, Johnson, Parker, Palo Pinto and Hood.

Best Credit Union for Auto Loans: Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union

GoBankingRates says Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union, or RBFCU, which serves Texas communities near San Antonio and Austin, is the best credit union for auto loans thanks to its rock-bottom rates. 

Members can receive rates as low as 1.65 percent APR on new and used auto loans with terms between 24 months and 66 months. With competitive rates and terms from two years up to six or more, RBFCU gives members flexible options for auto loans that suit their monthly budgets.

In addition to low rates on auto loans, RBFCU also provides other financing options. These include options like signature loans and collateral loans, as well as financing for non-traditional vehicles like RVs, boats, ATVs and motorcycles.

RBFCU was chartered in 1952 to serve personnel at Randolph Air Force Base. Today the credit union serves more than 450,000 members, with total assets exceeding $6 billion. RBFCU's field of membership now includes employees and associates at more than 2,000 select groups and eight underserved communities in San Antonio and Austin areas. For more information, please visit
