*Qualifications vary by account. Account transactions and activities may take one or more days to post and settle and all must do so during the Monthly Qualification Cycle in order to qualify for the account’s rewards. The following activities do not count toward earning account rewards: ATM-processed transactions, transfers between accounts, and purchases made with non-Cortland Bank issued debit cards. “Monthly Qualification Cycle” begins on the 6th of every month. The cutoff date for qualifying debit card purchases is the 5th of every month. If the 5th falls on a weekend or a holiday, the statement cycle and monthly qualification cycle will end on the business day before the weekend/holiday. Rewards vary by account. Depending on your Choice Rewards checking account type, you will receive one of the following rewards when account qualifications are met during a Monthly Qualification Cycle: (1) Interest on your checking account balances (Choice Interest and Choice Premier), (2) Cash back on debit card purchases (Choice Cash). In addition, you will receive reimbursements for nationwide ATM fees incurred during the Monthly Qualification Cycle in which you qualified. Depending on your Choice Rewards checking account, when your qualifications are not met, only non-qualifying interest is earned, other rewards distributions are not made and ATM fees are not refunded. Account rewards and ATM fee reimbursements will be credited to your Choice Rewards account on the last day of the statement cycle. Account approval, conditions, qualifications, limits, time frames, enrollments, log-ons and other requirements may apply. Monthly accessing of online banking and receipt of electronic statements may be a condition(s) of these account(s). There are no recurring monthly service charges or fees to open or close this account as long as you authorize receipt of an electronic statement. Accounts that receive a monthly paper statement will be assessed a $2 fee monthly. Contact a Cortland Bank representative for additional information, details, restrictions, processing limitations and enrollment instructions. APYs are accurate as of 6/29/2020.
