SafeAmerica Credit Union Announces Launch of New Rewards Program

SafeAmerica Credit Union has announced a new relationship rewards program that will launch Aug. 5, 2019. The new program targets members with checking accounts and offers bonus rewards based on their total deposit balance with the credit union.  Members’ balances will determine the tier level and the amount of rewards they receive. Some bonuses include cash back on auto loan balances, bonus rewards points on Visa credit card purchases, fee waivers and reimbursements, and much more.  

“MoveUP Rewards encourages members to bring their entire financial relationship to SafeAmerica through unmatched rewards and recognition of their status with the credit union,” says Matthew Benidt, VP of Retail at SafeAmerica Credit Union. “Our entire team is excited to offer members the opportunity to gain significant value from the MoveUP Rewards program.”

On Monday, Aug. 5, 2019, all SafeAmerica Credit Union checking account members will be automatically enrolled in the program and members will start seeing their bonuses posted to their accounts by Sept. 1, 2019. 

Financial institutions are vying for deposits. SafeAmerica Credit Union’s new aggressive approach is to gain deposits by rewarding their members, cultivating the relationship between the institution and member. Full rollout of the MoveUP Rewards program will be completed by October 2019.
