What Makes Us Different

We like to go above and beyond with the services we offer our members. Here’s what makes us different.

Points for Perks

Debit and credit card holders can earn reward points.1  Redeem points for discounts and promotions on Educators products and services, cash back, gift cards, air travel, and more.

Debit card “credit” transactions = 1 point for every $2 spent
Credit card “credit” transactions = 1 point for every $1 spent

Points are only earned on credit/signature transactions. No points are earned when the PIN is used. Accumulated points expire after 5 years.
