Summary

Rewards

When you meet monthly qualifications, you get some great rewards! If you don't meet the qualifications one month, don't worry. There is no penalty, and you still have a free checking account that earns our base interest rate. Plus, you can get back to earning big interest and nationwide ATM fee refunds the very next month.

Qualifications

It's always a free account, but get the rewards too! Qualifying for rewards is so easy, you're probably already doing it! It's as simple as doing the following each monthly qualification cycle:

  • Have at least 12 debit card purchases post and clear
  • Have at least 1 ACH transaction (deposit or withdrawal)
  • Receive free eStatements

If you don't meet the qualifications one month, don't worry. There is no penalty, and you still have a free checking account that earns our base interest rate. Plus, you can get back to earning big interest and nationwide ATM fee refunds the very next month.

Rates may change after the account is opened. Fees may reduce earnings. Qualifying transactions must post and clear to the account during the monthly qualification cycle. Transactions may take one or more banking days from the date the transaction was made to post to an account. Intra-bank transfers do not count as qualifying transactions. ATM Fee reimbursements up to $15 ($5 max per transaction) provided only if qualifications are met within the monthly qualification cycle. The first monthly qualification cycle will auto qualify you to earn the rewards.

Fees Alert!

Yeah, it's a "free account" but you may do some other stuff that could cause a fee.

Stop Payment Fee

(for paper checks or electronic withdrawals)

$20.00
Overdraft/ NSF Fee

(We know, this is a sensitive one and we try to be generous in forgiving 1st time offenders and honest mistakes if you call and explain the situation to us. Plus we won't charge a fee if the purchase or resulting overdraft is $10.00 or less)

$30.00
Surcharge ATM Fee

(We don't charge these fees, the owners of other ATMs charge them for using their machine. Interest Rewards Checking customers get up to $15 per statement cycle refunded if they meet the activity qualifications of their account. Really, it's pretty easy to qualify if you use the account as your primary account. Only US transactions qualify for refunds)
