*First Fed Cash Back – Truth in Savings Disclosures
This disclosure contains the rules that govern your Cash Back deposit account.
Account Overview: First Fed Cash Back is a free variable rewards checking account with no minimum balance that rewards accountholders with cash back on their signature-based debit card purchases and nationwide ATM fee refunds when they meet minimum qualifications during the account's Monthly Qualification Cycle.
Purpose & Use Expectations: The First Fed Cash Back account is intended to be the accountholder’s primary checking account in which payroll transactions and day-to-day spending activities including but not limited to grocery, gasoline, apparel, shopping, dining, sporting and entertainment transactions are posted and settled.
Commensurate with the spending activities identified above, we expect the account’s debit card to be used frequently throughout each month and for transaction amounts to reflect a wide dollar range. Small debit card transactions conducted on the same day at a single merchant and/or multiple transactions made during a condensed time period particularly near the end of a Monthly Qualification Cycle are not considered normal, day-to-day spending behavior. These types of transactions appear to be conducted with the sole purpose of qualifying for the account’s rewards and thus will be deemed inappropriate transactions and will not count toward earning the account’s rewards. First Federal Community Bank reserves the right to determine if the account is being maintained for a purpose other than day-to- day, primary use. Accountholders who persist in making debit card and transactions in a calculated and limited fashion in order to meet their monthly qualifications may have their accounts converted to a different checking account or closed altogether. We also reserve the right to convert the account to a different checking account if the account does not have consistent active use over two (2) consecutive Statement Cycles.
We have the right to close this account at any time, with proper notice. Our decision to close the account will not affect your existing obligations to us including any obligation to pay fees or charges incurred prior to termination. No deposits will be accepted and no checks will be paid after the account is closed. If the account is closed, you will forfeit any rewards that have not been credited to your account. A First Federal Community Bank cashier’s check for the remaining balance, if applicable, will be mailed to accountholder at the address indicated on our current records. Upon termination of your First Fed Cash Back account, any optional add-on products / services associated with this account will also be terminated at the same time.
First Federal Community Bank has no control nor influence over any merchant's payment processing procedures or methodologies. Please consult with the merchant's management and your State's Banking Commissioner if you believe your transaction(s) was not processed in accordance with your signature authorization.
