It’s Easy to Earn Your Platinum Checking Rewards
Enrollments must be in place and all of the following transactions and activities must post and settle to your Platinum Checking account during each Monthly Qualification Cycle:
- At least 15 debit card purchases ($5 minimum per purchase)
- At least 2 direct deposits, ACH credit, or ACH payment transactions (i.e.: Automatic Payroll Deposit)
And that’s it. Even if you don’t meet your qualifications during the cycle, your Platinum Checking account is still free. Plus, you’ll still earn our base interest rate and can get right back to earning your full rewards the very next month!
Account transactions and activities may take one or more days to post and settle to the account and all must do so during the Monthly Qualification Cycle in order to qualify for the account's rewards. The following activities do not count toward earning account rewards: ATM-processed transactions, transfers between accounts, debit card purchases less than $5.00, debit card purchases processed by merchants and received by our bank as ATM transactions, non-retail payment transactions and purchases made with debit cards not issued by our bank. Transactions bundled together by merchants and received by our institution as a single transaction count as a single transaction for the purpose of earning account rewards. "Monthly Qualification Cycle" means a period beginning one (1) banking day prior to the first day of the current statement cycle through one (1) banking day prior to the last business day of the current statement cycle.
When your Platinum Checking account qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle, daily balances up to and including $100,000.00 in your Platinum Checking account earn an interest rate of 1.985% resulting in an APY of 2.00%; and daily balances over $100,000.00 earn an interest rate of 0.25% on the portion of the daily balance over $100,000.00, resulting in a range from 2.00% to 0.25% APY depending on the account's daily balance. You will receive reimbursements up to an aggregate total of $24.00 for nationwide ATM withdrawal fees incurred within your Platinum Checking account during that Monthly Qualification Cycle. We reimburse ATM withdrawal fees based on estimates when the withdrawal information we receive does not identify the ATM withdrawal fee. If you have not received an appropriate reimbursement, we will adjust the reimbursement amount if we receive the transaction receipt within sixty (60) calendar days of the withdrawal transaction. When your Platinum Checking qualifications are not met, the interest rate earned on the account's entire daily balance will be 0.05% resulting in an annual percentage yield of 0.05% and ATM withdrawal fees are not refunded. Interest will be credited to your Platinum Checking account on the last day of the current statement cycle. Nationwide ATM withdrawal fee reimbursements will be credited to your account on the last day of the current statement cycle.
*APY = Annual Percentage Yield. APYs accurate as of 08/17/2023.
