There are no additional qualifications to meet in order to receive the Platinum Savings rate. The interest rate and APY that apply to your Platinum Savings account will be determined based on whether you have met the qualification criteria for your Platinum Checking Account. You must have a Platinum Checking account in order to open a Platinum Savings account.
The number of withdrawals or transfers from Platinum Savings that you make in-person, by mail or at an ATM are unlimited. During your statement cycle, you may make up to six transfers or payments in the aggregate via pre-authorized withdrawals, telephone banking and on-line banking service, automatic transfers or at point of sale terminals using your ATM or debit card. These transactions are considered made on the date the transaction posts and settles your account, not the date the withdrawal request was initiated. **Any withdrawal in excess of two (2) withdrawals per statement cycle 9in person, via ATM machine, voice response, PC banking, or any other payment out of this account) will result in an excess withdrawal fee of $2.50 per withdrawal.
Just meet the Platinum Checking qualifications each statement cycle:
- Have at least 12 debit card point of sale purchases post and settle (ATM-processed transactions do not count towards qualifying debit card transactions.)
- Have at least 1 automatic payment or direct deposit post and settle
- Be enrolled and receive electronic statements
- Be enrolled and log into online banking
Should you not meet the qualifications in a given cycle, don't worry. You will still receive our base rate of interest on both your Platinum Checking and Savings accounts and you can get the higher rates back the very next month!
