  • First Tech Rewards Checking account: earn cash back on loan payments and credit cards, and additional dividends.TRUTH-IN-SAVINGS DISCLOSURE: First Tech Rewards Checking and First Tech Rewards Savings. Limit one Rewards Checking account per primary account owner. Any additional Rewards Checking accounts may be converted to a different First Tech checking account. Account must be a personal account. Trust, Business, and Organization accounts are not eligible.

    Rate Information: The First Tech Rewards Checking is a tiered rate account. The dividend rate and corresponding Annual Percentage Yield (APY) will be either the qualified or non-qualified rate as determined by the qualification requirements per monthly cycle (listed below). If qualifications are met, the dividend rate and APY specified for a tier will apply only to the portion of the account balance that is within that tier. The dividend rates and range of APY(s) may vary depending on account balance and are listed for each tier.

    First Tech Rewards Checking requirements per monthly cycle:

    • Have a combined total of at least 20 qualifying transactions with an aggregate spend of at least $500 per month posted to the applicable accounts. Qualifying transactions include:
      - Posted debit card purchases to the First Tech Rewards Checking account
      - Posted credit card purchases on a First Tech credit card account*
    • Have ACH deposits and/or withdrawals totaling at least $1,000 per cycle (either multiple aggregate ACHs equal to $1,000 or one $1,000 ACH) to the First Tech Rewards Checking account

    • Enrollment in electronic statements and notices for the primary account owner

    In order to qualify, all qualifications listed above must be completed and posted to your account prior to the last day of the month. For example, the last day of January is January 31st. Debit and credit card transactions must post to your account(s) by January 30th. Transactions that post on the last day of the month will be counted toward the next month’s qualification cycle. Debit and credit card purchases can take up to several business days to post, depending on the merchant’s processing time. If you don't meet the requirements for a qualification period, you'll earn the non-qualified rate and corresponding APY. 

    The offered rebates may change at any time, as determined by the Credit Union’s Board of Directors. The following rebates will be credited to the First Tech Rewards Checking account if the account qualification criteria are met for the monthly cycle in which the transaction posted. Rebates will be posted within 3 business days after the end of the month.

    • Reimbursement of any out-of-network U.S. ATM fees, up to a maximum of $15 per month

    Merchant category codes that qualify for the reimbursement of online streaming subscriptions include the following: 4899 - Cable, Satellite, and Other Pay Television and Radio Services; 5735 - Record Shops; and 5968 - Direct Marketing - Continuity/Subscription Merchants. First Tech does not have the ability to control how a retailer chooses to classify their business and therefore reserves the right to determine which purchases qualify. Merchants who accept Mastercard® credit cards are assigned a merchant code which is determined by the merchant or its processor in accordance with Mastercard® procedures based on the kinds of products and services they primarily sell. First Tech groups similar merchant codes into categories for purposes of making offers to you. Please note that First Tech makes every effort to include all relevant merchant codes in our categories. However, even though a merchant or some of the items that it sells may appear to fit within a category, the merchant may not have a merchant code in that category.

    *Credit card purchases must be made on a First Tech credit card account with the same primary account owner as the First Tech Rewards Checking account.
    **Primary account owner of the First Tech Rewards Checking account must be listed as primary borrower on the First Tech consumer loan(s) or home equity line of credit (HELOC). Regular payments to credit cards, closed-end mortgages, and commercial loan products are not eligible for this product offering and do not qualify for the above mentioned cash back rebates. Prepayments, late payments, and payoffs not included. Loans must be in good standing (active, current, not delinquent).

    Opening this checking account does not guarantee approvals on loan accounts. Lending qualifications will still apply.
