Reward Checking and Reward Checking II
While other banks' accounts just hold your money, this free, high interest checking account actually helps you make more! With Reward Checking, you can earn up to 1.50% APY* and domestic ATM fee refunds if you qualify. See branch for terms and conditions of account.
It's easy to qualify. Simply do a few simple things, like make purchases with your debit card and receive electronic statements through online banking. You'll earn a great rate and be able to get cash from any ATM in the country—not just in Washington or Idaho, but nationwide!
Easy Qualifications In order to receive the monthly rewards, just do the following each Qualification Cycle:   • Have at least 12 debit card point of sale transactions post and clear per Qualification Cycle. The debit card point of sale transactions may not be in a pending state to qualify as one of the qualifying transactions. Transactions may take one or more business day from the date the transaction was made to post to and clear an account. ATM withdrawals and point of sale credits do not qualify toward your 12 point of sale debit card transactions.  • Have at least one electronic payment or electronic direct deposit post and clear per Qualification Cycle. Intrabank transfers do not count as a qualifying transaction.  • Consent to receive your monthly statement and disclosures electronically through online banking. If you choose to receive your monthly statement in paper format, you will receive the non-qualifying annual percentage yield. Even if you don't get the rewards, you'll still earn our non qualifying APY*, and you'll get the higher qualifying APY* and domestic ATM fee refunds back the next month you qualify! See branch for terms and conditions of account.

The qualification requirements must be met by the end of the Qualification Cycle. The Qualification Cycle means a period beginning one business day prior to the first day of the Statement Cycle through one business day prior to the close of the Statement Cycle. In order to fully understand the Qualification Cycle, you must understand how the Statement Cycle cutoff date is determined. The Statement Cycle cutoff date will be the 25th day of each month if the 25th is a business day. If the 25th is a weekend or federal holiday, then the Statement Cycle cutoff date may be up to three calendar days earlier. For example, if the 25th of the month falls on a weekend, the qualification transactions must post and clear by Thursday of that week. If the 25th falls on a federal holiday, the Statement Cycle cutoff date will be two business days before the federal holiday, which may result in a Qualification Cycle ending up to four calendar days prior to the 25th. Business days are Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays.
If you have met your qualifications for the month, we will reimburse you for domestic ATM fees up to $25.00 per Qualification Cycle. Domestic ATM fees up to $4.99 will be reimbursed automatically. Reimbursement of domestic ATM fees higher than $4.99 require you to present a receipt in branch. We must hear from you no later than 30 days after the statement cycle where the reimbursement was applicable. Domestic ATM fee reimbursement will be credited to your account on the last day of your Statement Cycle for domestic ATM fees charged to your account during the Qualification Cycle. If a domestic ATM fee is charged between the Qualification Cycle cutoff date and the Statement Cycle cutoff date, it will be included in the next monthly Qualification Cycle. If you do not meet the qualifications, the following Qualification Cycle you will not be reimbursed for this fee.
