Want to save money without thinking about it?
Cents Up is a feature of our checking account that allows you to round up every debit card purchase to the next highest whole dollar amount and moves the excess amount into a designated savings or checking account.
For example, if you purchased gas for $24.01, then the amount debited from your checking account will be rounded up to $25, so the difference, 99 cents, is what will transfer into the designated account for savings. This feature is a great way to start saving!

What if I don't have enough money in my account during the transaction?

If you are issued a new card with a different number, then you will have to re-enroll.
