Qualifications


It's easy to earn the highest WOW! rates and ATM fee refunds**! Simply do the following each qualification cycle:

  • Have a minimum of 10 point-of-sale debit card purchases post and clear during the Qualification Cycle
  • Have a minimum of one direct deposit or one ACH debit post and clear during the Qualification Cycle
  • Access online banking at least once during the Qualification Cycle
  • Receive electronic statements for the Statement Cycle

Even if you don't qualify during a cycle, you'll get unlimited check writing and debit card transactions and receive our base rate of interest; however, you will not receive the premium rate or ATM fee refunds for that cycle. But you can get the incentives back the very next cycle, if you qualify!



Effective 10.17.17

*APY is Annual Percentage Yield.

When your daily balance is $25,000 or less, the interest rate paid on the entire balance will be 1.00% with an APY of 1.00%. An interest rate of 0.15% will be paid only for that portion of your daily balance that is greater than $25,000. The APY for this tier will range from 1.00% to 0.15% depending on the balance in the account. Since the balance over $25,000 earns 0.15%, the blended effective APY will be reduced as the balance increases. For example, for an account where the daily balance is $30,000, the account would earn 1.00% on the first $25,000 and 0.15% on the remaining $5,000, with a blended calculation of 0.86% APY. This disclosure is based on the account meeting required qualifications. An interest rate of 0.03% with an APY of 0.03% will be paid on the entire balance in the account if the qualifications are not met. Rates as of October 17, 2017. We may change the interest rate and APY at any time after the account is opened. You must deposit a minimum of $100 to open this account. Available for personal accounts only. No monthly service charge. If you do not meet the qualifications per cycle, your account will still function as a checking account earning 0.03% APY; however it will not receive ATM fee reimbursements for that cycle. ATM-processed transactions do not count towards qualifying debit card transactions.


Qualification Cycle means statement cycle. Statement cycle is the period beginning the second (2nd) Thursday of each month through the second (2nd) Wednesday of the following month. Statements will produce on the second (2nd) Wednesday of each month and the number of days may vary in each qualification cycle.


**ATM surcharge fee reimbursements up to $25 per cycle when qualifications are met. (Surcharges: fees assessed by other banks for ATM withdrawals or inquiries nationwide.)
