E-Plus Checking Account
The E-Plus checking account gives you a $.05 reward on all signature purchases1 with your free VISA debit card, plus more free withdrawals from ATM’s than the Essentials checking. If you do the majority of your banking online and are looking to make more on the money you already have and spend, this is the checking account for you.
Rewards Checking Account
Our Rewards checking account gives you a $.10 reward on all signature purchases2 with your free VISA debit card, more free withdrawals from ATMs than the Essentials and E-Plus checking accounts, and free linked account transfers from your savings account. If you do the majority of your banking online, typically keep a higher balance in your checking account, and are looking to make more on the money you already have and spend, this is the right checking account for you.
Dividend Checking Account
Our Dividend checking account allows you to earn dividends up to 2% APY* and includes ATM surcharge refunds and free linked account transfers from your savings account.
