- State Security Bank is offering a 3% on balances up to $10,000 if you meet the following requirements:
- Have at least 12 debit card transactions post and settle
- Be enrolled in and agree to receive eStatements

The Fine Print
- Account transactions and activities may take one or more days to post and settle to the account and all must do so during the Monthly Qualification Cycle in order to qualify for the account’s rewards.
- ATM-processed transactions and transfers between accounts do not count toward earning account rewards.
- “Monthly Qualification Cycle” means a period beginning one (1) business day prior to the first day of the current statement cycle through one (1) business day prior to the close of the current statement cycle.
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
Account has no monthly fees to worry about. When the requirements for the 3% rate are met you can also receive ATM rebates up to $25 (maximum of $4.99 per transaction. An ATM receipt must be presented within sixty (60) calendar days of transaction for reimbursements of individual ATM fees of $5.00 or higher)
Fairly easy to meet the requirements (here’s some easy ideas on how to meet the debit card requirement). I do think there are better options out there (and we discuss them in this post) but this could be useful for somebody that needs additional capacity if it turns out to be a soft pull.
