Do you always believe “something amazing” is within your reach?  If so, we are your kind of bank.  We are constantly exploring for the next big idea, which is how 'Amazing' was born!

With The Amazing Account, you can earn rewards points, enable your mobile lifestyle, and enjoy a local experience delivered by our passionate bankers.  It's truly a checking account worthy of its name!

3.01% APY on your Checking Account
Earn 3.01% APY (paid in points) on the first $5,000 in your account, when 10 debit card purchases post and clear your account during the monthly statement cycle. Plus, receive 0.05% APY on the portion of your balance over $5,000.

Interest Paid in Rewards Points
We think you should choose what feels most rewarding to you.  So, in order to give you plenty of rewards options, the interest for your Amazing account will be credited in rewards points each month, rather than an automatic deposit to your account.   For example,  if you earn $7.50 in interest for the month, you will receive 750 rewards points ($7.50 Cash Back value).   With points, you then get to choose how you want to be rewarded!

Debit Card Rewards
Receive 10 rewards points each time you make a debit card purchase1

ATM Fee Credits Up to $10 each  Month
If you pay a convenience fee while using an ATM...Amazing pays you back in monthly rewards points (up to $10 fee credit per month).  Since this credit is provided in rewards points rather than an automatic cash refund, you can redeem the points any way you would like.  As an example, pay an ATM fee of $2.50 and you will earn 250 rewards points ($2.50 Cash Back value).

Redeem Your Points
Each time you redeem points, you get to choose what feels most rewarding to you.  On some days, it may be a $25 Starbucks gift card.  Other times, you might feel like an iPad, an airline ticket to Orlando, a charitable donation, or simply Cash Back.  Plus, if you want to store up points for a larger redemption item, any points you earn may be saved for up to four years from the date of issuance.  Check out all of the Amazing rewards options by clicking here.

When it is time to redeem your points you can do so quickly and easily through your online banking, or by calling the My Amazing Rewards center at (888) 659-9848.
