Our VISA® Debit Card Offers Cash Back!

Our VISA® Debit Card is the perfect companion to our Checking Account. For every qualified non-ATM signature based transaction, we'll pay you 5-cents every time you use your card. That means every time you use your card as "credit" at a point-of-sale location or online, you'll earn cash back. Rebates are posted to your Checking Account monthly.

Looking to save even more money? When you open a consumer checking account, enroll in eStatements and eNotices and have at least one deposit of $200 or more received by ACH or direct deposit during the current calendar month, you are eligible to use our bill pay service for free! This great service can save you time and money. Never pay postage to mail your bill payments again!
