Since we all have WT Direct accounts from their huge bonus offers back in the spring, it’s time to beef up the amount of money you have in your account for some extra bonuses!
It’s our double dose of early Free Money offers this week since both the Citi $50 Sign Up Bonus & 10% off AT&T Service and this offer expire on Friday!
WT Direct sent me an email with the following offer. If you are currently a WTDirect customer too, look for the offer in your email.
If you don’t have a WTDirect account yet, but want to open one so you can take advantage of future offers, you can open one at: WT Direct.

At 0.5%, the $10k bonus is the best. But for what is essentially a 3-month CD, that’s not much of a deal for holding an investable chunk of money. Even my credit union pays 4% on my emergency fund. Better off looking for other bank deals like the Chase one paying $100 for opening and holding a $100 checking account.
Chris, you’re right, it’s definitely not the best bonus we’ve ever seen! Although, one of the reasons I liked it was since the timing will line up nicely with the 5% Certificates at Pentagon Federal starting just after this one runs out.
Which credit union are you using for 4%?
I’m always hesitant chasing percentages with long-term lockups. The 4% account (formerly 6% pre-2008) is at http://www.schoolsfirstfcu.org.....rsaver.asp. It has limits, DD required, and comes out annually, but is free and works for me. There’s also a free 5.12% HSA at http://www.sffirecu.org/checki.....s-accounts. You just can’t find free semi-liquid savings accounts that high these days!
