FAQs

How does it work?

Each time you use your SaversEdge® debit card from Community First, your purchase automatically get rounded up to the next dollar. For example: Use your card to make a purchase at Oliver's Market –– or anywhere –– for $3.41. The transaction is rounded up to an even $4 (which makes it soooo easy to balance your checkbook). The rounded up portion (59¢) is added to your saving account. Voilá –– the easiest way to save money in the history of the world!

Nice –– and super easy –– but what is Community First doing to give me an incentive to save?

Saving money is a good habit to develop –– and keep. But to sweeten the deal, Community First bumps all your rounded-up monies by 5% there(ever)after. We overlay 5% on top of each rounded-up purchase. Where else can you get an automatic, guaranteed (and insured) 5% return on your money in today's low-rate environment?

Is there any cost to use SaversEdge®?

No.
