How do I earn Interest Reward Rates? 

You earn Reward Rate of 0.15% APY** on balances up to and including $25,000 when all the reward requirements are met.  Here's How:  

  • Enroll in Online Banking and receive your statements online* ( Easy!)  
 
  • A direct deposit transaction must be posted, either an ACH debit or an ACH credit. (for example, a payroll deposit or a payment to any loan)

  • A minimum of 12 signature-based VISA Check Card transactions must be posted each statement cycle. 
    • HOW? When you're ready to make a purchase, select "credit" as  your payment option instead of a debit. With this option,  you don't need to enter your secret PIN#.  This applies to all daily purchases such as gas stations, grocery stores, anywhere VISA is accepted.  

***You earn interest at the base rate when any of these requirements are not met during any statement cycle.
