When you qualify for your Platinum Checking or Gold Cash Back rewards, you automatically qualify for the highest Platinum Savings rate, too! Enrollments must be in place and all of the following transactions and activities must post and settle to your Platinum Checking or Gold Cash Back 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 (ie: Automatic Payroll Deposit)
If for some reason you don’t meet these qualifications, it’s going to be just fine — You can still earn our base rate on Platinum Savings and get right back to earning full rewards the very next cycle that you qualify.
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 linked Platinum Checking or Gold Cash Back account qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle, daily balances up to and including $250,000.00 in your Platinum Savings account earn an APY of 1.50% and daily balances over $250,000.00 earn an interest rate of 0.15% on the portion of the daily balance over $250,000.00, resulting in a range from 1.50% to 0.15% APY depending on the account's daily balance. When your linked Platinum Checking or Gold Cash Back account qualifications are not met, the entire daily balance in the Platinum Savings account earns an interest rate of 0.05% resulting in an annual percentage yield of 0.05% APY. Interest will be credited to your Platinum Savings account on the last day of the current statement cycle.
*APY = Annual Percentage Yield. APYs accurate as of 08/17/2023.
