Qualifications may apply to opening new checking accounts. $100 will be deposited into member’s primary Savings account and will earn dividends but will not be available for withdrawal or access for any reason until 7 months after account opening. $100 will be forfeited if the Checking account is not active for any 30 day period during the first 7 months the account is open—with the exception of a 30 day grace period from the account opening date. An active checking account is defined as a minimum of four (4) transactions per 30 day period. Eligible transactions include: Visa Check Card purchases, checks clearing, direct deposit of payroll or other funds, bills paid via Online BillPay, in-branch withdrawals or deposits, ATM deposits. Non-eligible transactions include: dividend posting, fee assessment, manual adjustments, transfers, ATM withdrawals, automatic debits or other transactions. Accounts will be reviewed during the 8th month after the open date. At that time, the hold on the $100 will either be released, or the $100 will be debited from the account. Please allow 4-6 weeks after the end of the 7th month for the account review to be finalized. Offer is not valid with other offers, and may change or end without notice.
