You can win a 2021 Tesla Model 3
Time to swipe yourself into a brand-new Tesla. That’s right. Your swipes can earn you entries into our Tesla giveaway. When you open a Bonus Checking Account and make at least 10 purchases in a month, you’ll be entered to win a 2021 Tesla! It’s that simple.
You know that details matter. [and you are in good company.]
Here are a few frequently asked questions:
Yes, that’s right! Here’s how it works. Anytime you get charged an ATM fee, we’ll reimburse your account. There are no limits either. Give us about two days, and you’ll see the fee rebate show up in your account. As a Civic member, you will never pay any ATM fees from anywhere at anytime.
Yes! We’ve got options when you want to go old-school. Your first box of standard Civic checks are complimentary. If you need checks, just let us know. We will get them ordered and sent to your address on file.
When you first open your account, there is a $5 requirement. Once the account has been opened, there are no minimums. So, if your active account falls below the initial $5 requirement, it’s completely okay [and there are no fees].
Each account owner gets their own debit card. That way, each person has the flexibility to use Civic the way they prefer. Want your card to go further? Link it to a digital wallet like Apple Pay®, Samsung Pay®, Google Pay® or Mastercard® Click to Pay.
Right from the start, we encourage you to designate one or more of your accounts as an overdraft option. This way, if a transaction cannot be covered – and there’s funds available in a designated account - we can move what’s needed to cover the charge. If you select a deposit account as a transfer option, we'll transfer exactly what is needed to cover the charge. If you designate a loan account, transfers happen in increments of $50. This important overdraft protection step prevents insufficient funds fees. So, when you select overdraft transfer options, you can use a Select Savings, Money Market, Rewards Credit Card, Personal Line of Credit or another Bonus Checking account. And you can combine options together.
Yes. If there are no funds of any kind available, we will have to reject the transaction and charge your account a $15 fee. To avoid this, enroll your account in overdraft protection.
If a charge comes through your account and your balance cannot support the charge, we can transfer the funds needed to cover the charge from your designated overdraft account(s). To set up this service, contact the Experience Center.
For each month you use your card at least 20 times, we pay a dividend rate bonus. Whether your purchase is in person, online or with your digital wallet - it all counts towards your 20 uses. This bonus dividend is one of the ways we say thanks for being a member.
Getting started with direct deposit can be as easy as providing your account number and the Civic routing number (052185723)
Many Employers and Government Entities that provide Direct Deposit payments will have their own paperwork, so it is vital to check with them first. If there is no set form required by the Paying Entity and the requirement is only to submit your request in writing, then simply download and complete the Civic Direct Deposit Authorization Form.
Civic Direct Deposit Authorization Form
* 1.00% APY applies to member accounts incurring 20 debit card purchases per month, excluding ATM withdrawals and automatic account drafts. Purchases and/or transactions may take up to two business days from transaction date to post to the account. This bonus dividend rate is paid on balances up to $10,000. Balances in excess of $10,000 will earn dividends at the current available rate. Minimum opening deposit is $5. For members making less than 20 qualified purchases per month, dividend rate is 0.15%.

† Early access to direct deposit funds depends on the timing of the payer’s submission of deposits. We generally post such deposits on the day they are received which may be up to three days earlier than the payer’s scheduled payment date.
