  • Have at least 12 debit card purchases post and settle
  • Be enrolled in and agree to receive eStatements
  • Be enrolled in and log into online banking

And if you don't meet these qualifications, don't worry. Your account is still free. Plus, you'll still earn our base dividend rate. And you can get right back to earning your full rewards the very next cycle that you qualify.

Will this account be added to an existing Chief Financial Credit Union account?

*Qualification Information: 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 processed by merchants and received by our credit union as ATM transactions, non-retail payment transactions and purchases made with debit cards not issued by our credit union. “Monthly Qualification Cycle” means a period beginning one (1) day prior to the first day of the current statement cycle through one (1) day prior to the close of the current statement cycle.

Rewards Information: When Kasasa Giving qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle balances up to $25,000.01 receive a non-compounding APY* of 2.25%; and balances over $25,000.01 earn .39% interest rate on the portion of balance over $25,000.00, resulting in a non-compounding range from 2.25% to .77% APY* depending on the account’s balance. In addition, you will receive unlimited reimbursements for nationwide ATM fees up to $4.99 per single transaction incurred during the Monthly Qualification Cycle in which you qualified.
