Qualifications: 

It's so easy to qualify; you're probably already doing it! To earn your rewards, simply do the following activities and transactions in your Vantage Checking account each monthly qualification cycle:

  • Have at least 12 debit card purchases post and settle
  • Be enrolled and receive eStatement notice
  • Have at least 1 automatic payment or direct deposit post and settle

That's it! And if for some reason you don't qualify, don't worry. The account is still free and you still earn the base interest rate no matter what. You can get back to earning the full rewards the next monthly qualification cycle!

If qualifications are met each monthly qualification cycle: (1) Domestic ATM fees incurred during qualification cycle will be reimbursed up to $20 and credited to account on the last day of monthly statement cycle; (2) balances up to $25,000 receive APY of 1.00%; and (3) balances over $25,000 earn 0.25% interest rate on portion of balance over $25,000, resulting in 1.00% -0.40% APY depending on the balance. If qualifications are not met, all balances earn 0.01% APY. Qualifying transactions must post to and settle account during monthly qualification cycle. Transactions may take one or more banking days from the date transaction was made to post to and settle an account. ATM-processed transactions do not count towards qualifying debit card transactions. "Monthly Qualification Cycle" means a period beginning one day prior to the first day of the current statement cycle through one day prior to the close of the current statement cycle. Bill Pay fee refunds of $2.95 are given each cycle when qualifications are met. Personal accounts only, and only one account per unique SSN.
