How do I earn cash back with my Tailored Checking account?

You must have a Tailored Checking account open for at least 30 days and keep an average balance of $5,000 or more in your account. Cash back is only available for online and in-store signature-based (“credit”) purchases made with your debit card linked to a Tailored Checking account.

Tip: When shopping in store select “credit” instead of “debit” at the point-of-sale where available to ensure you receive the cash back. The cash back you earn will automatically be credited to your account at the end of the month following the earning period.

What is a signature-based purchase?

There are two ways a debit card can be processed at the time of a purchase.

The first option is called the “debit/online/PIN debit” method, where you enter your PIN at the point of sale and the funds are immediately debited from your account.

The second option is called the “credit/offline/signature debit” method, where you select the “credit” button, sending the transaction through the credit card processing network. A hold is placed on the money for the transaction in your account, which clears or processes in a day or two. You have to use this debit function if you want to receive cash back during your transaction. It is important to note that when you are using your debit card for online purchases, your card will automatically run as a credit transaction. For information, click here.
