Gold Rewards Program**
Here's How to Qualify:
The Benefits of Gold Rewards:
Gold Rewards Disclosure: **The “Gold Rewards” program is designed to benefit credit union members who maintain important account relationships at the credit union. In order to be eligible to receive “Gold Rewards” you must meet the following criteria on a monthly basis: maintain a checking account, maintain either a Direct Deposit of $1,500 or more within the month, or have BillPay with a minimum of 4 unique payments within the month, and have a minimum combined deposit and/or loan balance of $20,000 or more. All qualifying accounts must be in good standing with no current delinquent loan accounts or charge offs to the credit union. Your accounts will be reviewed at the end of each month to determine eligibility for “Gold Rewards” and the rewards will be available in the following month. All qualifying accounts must be owned by the primary member and registered with the same Social Security number. Business accounts do not qualify for the “Gold Rewards” program.
Meeting these criteria on a monthly basis will earn the “Gold Rewards” Member: periodic special share certificate offers; a .25% reduction on new personal and auto loans (does not apply to the refinancing of existing loans at the credit union or new mortgages. To earn this .25% rate reduction, the member must qualify as a “Gold Rewards” Member at the time of application), *all Charter Oak foreign ATM fees will be rebated, surcharge fees charged by other financial institutions or networks will be rebated up to $9.99 each to a maximum of $20 a month and rebated at the end of the month, one free standard order of checks during a six month period, (order must be placed at a branch or through the Call Center), free Travelers Cheques, Cashier’s Checks, Money Orders, free coin counting and a $100 credit will be applied towards the closing costs of any new Charter Oak mortgage loan. (Does not apply to “Accelerator” or “Cost Saver” Mortgages or mortgage loans already financed at the credit union.)
In addition to the benefits listed above, each year a Cash Bonus will be paid to “Gold Rewards” Members who meet the monthly criteria. To qualify for the “Gold Rewards” Cash Bonus in 2014, you must be a Gold Rewards member each month for the period of March 2014 through December 2014. The Cash Bonus will be determined annually and paid in December. The Cash Bonus is considered interest and will be reported on IRS Form 1099-INT. Gold Rewards benefits can change without notice.
