For many of us, we use our checking accounts every single day. They help us manage our finances, pay for all kinds of expenses, and help us work toward our goals. But our new Academy Bank Select Rewards Checking Account has even more features than the typical checking account and is designed to reward you as it helps you save, monitor, and protect.
In this three-part series, we’ll focus on each feature of our new rewards checking account. Keep reading to learn more about the first feature: save.
How Select Rewards Checking Helps You Save
Big rewards, big protection -- the Academy Bank Select Rewards Checking account serves up a big share of both. These rewards are designed to help you save money on your everyday purchases and more.
Save With Travel and Leisure Discounts
While we all have our personal financial goals, such as building up our emergency funds or saving for retirement, it doesn’t mean we aren’t allowed to have fun. Spending our money on things that improve our lives, such as travel and other leisure activities, is important, too.
At Academy Bank, we understand that importance. And we want to make sure you’re rewarded even when making travel and leisure purchases, with the discounts you deserve.
Our Select Rewards Checking Account provides money-saving discounts from thousands of local and national businesses. All you have to do is redeem and print coupons online or access discounts from a mobile device. (Available via mobile or web only. Mobile carrier fees may apply.)
Save With Rewards
Have you ever wished you could be rewarded simply for doing your shopping online? Now you can. As a member of Rewards, you’ll get access to exclusive offers and discounts at
thousands of leading online retailers.
All you have to do is shop online with our customized shopping portal. And you’ll get cash back. It’s as simple as that! (Registration/activation required; available via mobile or web only. Mobile carrier fees may apply.)
Save on Health Care Expenses
We all know that healthcare is expensive. But with our new Select Rewards Checking account, you could get discounts on your health care expenses.*
You can enjoy savings on vision, prescriptions and dental services. While this is NOT insurance, every little bit that you can save adds up. (registration/activation required)
Debit Card for Kids and Teens
One of the most valuable ways we can prepare our children for the future is by teaching them to be financially smart. Teaching your kids smart money habits at home can help set them up for success as adults.
There’s no perfect way to teach kids about money. But anything you do to make personal finance understandable when they’re young can help set them up for success in the future. And remember: the earlier you start, the better off they’ll be.
Help your kids and teens get started by setting them up with their own debit card. With the Academy Bank Select Rewards Checking Account, you can help your kids learn financial responsibility. But you also get access to their account to ensure parental oversight. (registration/activation required)
