If you make daily purchases with your debit card, your checking account is something you use often. Why not get the most out of it?
Checking accounts don't all offer the same benefits. Some have no minimum balance requirements, others waive ATM fees, and some offer rewards.
If you're a regular debit card user like I am, you might consider a checking account that offers rewards!
It's quite simple to earn rewards if you use your debit card on the daily. There are some credit unions that have an awesome rewards program, called Kasasa. You might check out Ocean Communities FCU, University Credit Union, Casco Federal Credit Union, York County Federal Credit Union, or Atlantic Regional Federal Credit Union. This is just naming a few, but you can ask your credit union, or find a credit union in your area, that offers these rewards!
How to earn rewards
With Kasasa, you can earn rewards by using your debit card, checking online or mobile banking at least once a month, and getting online statements (versus traditional mail statements).
These are all things most people do anyway!
Other rewards programs may have different requirements. Maine Savings Federal Credit Union is another credit union that offers a rewards program, called RedWallet Cash Back Checking. You can earn the same great rewards!
The point is...
If you are using your debit card, you should earn rewards while you do it! Check out some of these great programs at your local credit union!
