How is Green Checking different? Our Green Checking account is a hassle-free checking account that was designed to be simple while saving you time and resources. Green Checking comes with free e-statements, free debit card (with Cash Back Rewards), free online banking (with Bill Pay and People Pay), and free mobile banking (with Mobile Deposit and People Pay). This account is ideal for people on the go and who like to do all their banking electronically. With no minimum account balance requirement or monthly service fee, Green Checking also appeals to students and young adults who may be starting into the workforce.
What are Cash Back Rewards? Your Green Checking account automatically comes with a free debit card that can earn you money. With Cash Back Rewards, we end up paying YOU every time you swipe your card. Just use your debit card as a credit, signature-based transaction, and you will receive an automatic credit (up to $12 per statement cycle) into your account.
What are the benefits of e-statements? Obviously e-statements save precious natural resources, but they also have other benefits for YOU!
- Save room and clutter by downloading statements as PDFs.
- Secure access to 13 months of statements in online banking (after enrollment). Records are also available upon request for the past seven years.
- Get immediate access and e-mail alerts when your statement is available.
