How You Qualify

Qualifying for 1.01% APY1 and ATM Fee Refunds is easy. Just meet these three simple requirements each month, and the interest is yours:

  1. Make 10 purchases with our Visa® Debit card. (ATM transactions not included. Purchases must be posted, not pending.)
  2. Ensure one (1) posted Direct Deposit or Automatic Payment occurs from your account.
  3. Enroll in Online Statements to receive your statement electronically, so you can save to your computer and view anytime you'd like.

That's all there is to it. If you don't meet all three qualifications in any given qualification cycle, no problem. Your account is still free and you'll still earn an interest rate of 0.05% APY on your entire balance that cycleThe qualification cycle normally starts on the 4th Tues. of every month & ends on the business day prior to the 4th Tues. of the following month. Exception: If a federal holiday falls on the business day prior to the 4th Tues. of the month, the qualification cycle will end on the business day prior to that federal holiday.. Since that's comparable to what most traditional interest-bearing checking accounts pay, you have nothing to lose!

Simply meet the qualifications the following qualification cycle and you’re back to earning premium interest and having automatic refunds on ATM transaction fees worldwide.
