Member Loyalty has changed for 2019!

It’s a new Member Loyalty Reward for a new year! Educators Credit Union members can now unlock up to $165 for participating in Member Loyalty. All you need is an active checking account.

An active checking account is when:

  • You deposit a check, receive an electronic deposit from a non-Educators Credit Union account, or receive a payroll direct deposit into your checking account at least once a month.
  • You make at least five transactions each month. These transactions can be any combination of using your debit card, writing a check, making an automatic withdrawal or using Bill Pay. It does not include ATM withdrawals.

Once you have an active checking account, you can start building your rewards up each month! The reward will be processed on Nov. 30 and show in your account on Dec. 1.

  1. I’ve been a loyal member to ECU for 40+ years and now I need to have a checking account to earn any rewards! Now retired and living out of state I don’t need a checking account but no rewards for longevity to ECU members. Maybe it time to change where my annuity payments go.

    1. Hi Dorothy,

      Thank you for your membership! Part of the credit union mission is to treat every member equally and give access to the same services whether you have been with the credit union for 5 days or 50 years. Our Member Loyalty program is always changing but will keep your feedback into consideration. Best, Emily

  2. Does it count as one of the five transactions if I transfer funds from my checking account to pay my ECU credit card bill? If not, I’m already out for the year. 🙁

    1. Hi RuthAnn, Unfortunately, it does not count as a transaction. However you are not out for the year! You can hold an active checking account during other months and gain towards your loyalty amount. Please call or message back if you have more questions! Best, Emily

  3. I am not sure I understand if we qualify. We already have an active checking account and have had one for years. Do we have to open another one or are we automatically qualified?

    1. Thank you for your question Kathleen. An additional checking account is not required for this reward. An active checking account is one that meets the two qualifications listed above each month. If you have any questions, we’d be happy to look at your account together the next time you visit a branch or call our Member Response Center.
