There are no extra qualifications to get the Rewards Saver reward rate. Qualifying for your Rewards Checking automatically qualifies you for the highest Rewards Saver rate, too. To earn your rewards just do the following transactions and activities in your Rewards Checking account during each Monthly Statement Cycle:

  • Have at least 15 debit card transactions post and settle
  • Have at least 1 automatic payment (ACH) or direct deposit post and settle
  • Be enrolled in and agree to receive eStatements

If you don't meet the qualifications, don't worry. There's no penalty and both accounts are still free and earn our base interest rate. Plus, you can get back to earning the full rewards the very next month.
