Philadelphia FCU (PFCU) with branches located throughout the city is showing its support of the Philadelphia Phillies with a special savings certificate promotion. The credit union is so confident that the Phillies will win the World Series that they created a special promotion called the “Red October CD Blast.” For anyone who purchases a PFCU Regular One-Year Savings Certificate from now until Oct. 25, PFCU will lock in a special annual percentage yield (APY) of 3.25%. Participants also get a chance to score in the credit union’s Red October CD Blast. For each game that Philadelphia wins, PFCU will add 50 basis points to the certificate. If Philadelphia wins the series, the certificate will automatically increase to 6 % APY as a special bonus. The minimum purchase is $250 and there is no maximum. The offer is available to new and existing account holders. Philadelphia FCU has $580.9 million in assets.
