Does anyone know what is the catch with this?


Looks like a great deal. After a quick glance it looks it is only offered in about 18 states with 4 states specific as new construction only. I wonder what the member requirements are..? Need to be an employee of family member of NASA.


It is true you do have to be a member and that it is valid in only certain states. 
***Programs only available in the following designated areas: CO, CT, DC, DE, MA, MD, ME, MN, NC, NH, OR, PA, RI, TX (new purchases only), VA, VT, WA & WV.

However, there are several ways to become a member.  The last one listed below allows you to join without having any direct affiliation to NASA.

There are several ways you are eligible for NASA Federal Credit Union membership:
I am an employee or retiree of NASA Headquarters, any NASA Center or Facility, or NAS.
I am an employee or a member of one of 900 NASA Federal Credit Union partner companies or associations.
I am a relative or household member of a current NASA Federal Credit Union member.
Help me open an account another way. A complimentary membership to the National Space Society (NSS) entitles you to join NASA FCU.

If I lived in one of the target states for the offer and were refinancing my house, I would consider membership in NASA FCU.
