FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ADVANTAGE CHECKING

In order to get an Advantage Checking account, you must be a member of FFCCU who is over the age of 18. Account is subject to approval.

ATM withdrawals are subject to 2 different fees – one charged by FFCCU and the other charged by the ATM servicer. FFCCU refunds our charge on up to 8 withdrawals per month, or an unlimited number with a qualifying Advantage Checking account. ATMs in the Co-op network do not charge a servicer fee.

To calculate your average daily balance, determine the sum total of the balance for every day in the billing cycle and then divide the total by the number of days in the billing cycle.

For example, say you have a 30-day billing cycle and start the cycle with a $500 balance. Then, on day 11 you make a $100 purchase, and on day 18, you make a $200 deposit, your daily balances are: $500 for the first 10 days, $400 for the next seven days, $600 for the final 13 days. When you add those daily averages up per day, and divide by 30, you get an average daily balance of $520.

There’s no penalty! You simply won’t be eligible to earn 2.00% APY* and will be limited to eight FFCCU ATM withdrawals before incurring an FFCCU fee.

The best part: if you miss a month, you can still qualify in any given month after! Bonus benefits get unlocked on a monthly basis, so there’s always another chance to level up.
