In 2019, Azura Credit Union's Beyond Checking paid over $668,500 to account holders through dividends and refunded ATM fees.
This amount was the result of over $74,000 in ATM fee refunds and $594,000 in dividends paid. In total from 2019, Azura paid over $3.9 million in dividends back to its account holders for all deposit accounts.
“Our Beyond Checking account is just another way we go Above and Beyond Banking because it rewards our members with a great rate whether they have $100 or $15,000 in their account. It’s an easy way for us to thank active checking account members,” said Preston Ford, Azura's Vice President of Engagement.
Azura’s Beyond Checking account offers a competitive bonus rate for account holders who are looking to go beyond a traditional checking account. The account offers the highest rate of all Azura checking accounts being paid monthly when qualifications are met.
The three monthly qualifications include:
- 15 debit card transactions at a minimum amount of $5 each
- At least one Direct Deposit or ACH Auto Debit
- Signing up to receive e-statements
In addition to the bonus rate on balances up to $15,000 this account also offers ATM surcharge refunds. The account even earns interest when the requirements are not met, just not at the bonus rate level.
