Additional Rate Information - When the Grow Checking qualifications are NOT met, the interest rate on your account will be 0.01% and the annual percentage yield will be 0.01%.  When the Grow Checking qualifications are met, the interest rate on your Grow Checking account and corresponding annual percentage yield will be tiered as described in the RATE INFORMATION section. Compounding frequency - Interest will be compounded daily. Crediting frequency - Interest will be credited into this account monthly. Effect of closing an account - If you close your account before interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest. Average daily balance computation method - Interest is calculated by the average daily balance method which applies a periodic rate to the average daily balance in the account for the period. The average daily balance is calculated by adding the balance in the account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the period. The period we use to make this calculation is monthly. Accrual of interest on noncash deposits - Interest will begin to accrue on the business day you deposit noncash items (for example, checks) into your account. Minimum balance to open - The minimum balance required to open this account is $100.00. Deposit limitations - You may make an unlimited number of deposits into your account. Additional Terms - The following additional terms apply to this account: Purpose & Use Expectations: The Grow Checking account is intended to be the accountholder's primary checking account in which payroll transactions and day-to-day spending activities including but not limited to grocery, gasoline, apparel, shopping, dining, sporting and entertainment transactions are posted and settled. Commensurate with the spending activities identified above, we expect the account's debit card to be used frequently throughout each month and for transaction amounts to reflect a wide dollar range. Small debit card transactions conducted on the same day at a single merchant and/or multiple transactions made during a condensed time period particularly near the end of a Monthly Qualification Cycle are not considered normal, day-to-day spending behavior. These types of transactions appear to be conducted with the sole purpose of qualifying for the account's rewards and thus will be deemed inappropriate transactions and will not count toward earning the account's rewards. Teutopolis State Bank reserves the right to determine if the account is being maintained for a purpose other than day-to-day, primary use. Accountholders who persist in making debit card transactions in a calculated and limited fashion in order to meet their monthly qualifications may have their accounts converted to a different checking account or closed altogether. We also reserve the right to convert the account to a different checking account if the account does not have consistent active use over 6 consecutive Statement Cycles. We have the right to close this account at any time, with proper notice. Our decision to close the account will not affect your existing obligations to us including any obligation to pay fees or charges incurred prior to termination. No deposits will be accepted and no checks will be paid after the account is closed. If the account is closed, you will forfeit any rewards that have not been credited to your account. A Teutopolis State Bank check for the remaining balance, if applicable, will be mailed to accountholder at the address indicated on our current records. Upon termination of your Grow Checking account, any optional add-on products/services associated with this account will also be terminated at the same time.  Qualifications: To qualify for "Grow Checking" rates and receive reimbursements on your ATM fee surcharges, you must perform the following during the monthly qualification cycle: *Be enrolled and receive e-statement notice *Have at least 12 debit card purchases post and settle *Have at least 1 ACH debit post and settle Enrollment in electronic services (e.g. online banking, electronic statements) are required to meet some of this account's qualifications. Please contact a Teutopolis State Bank service representative for additional information, details and enrollment instructions. Transactions and activities MUST post and settle to your account during each Monthly Qualification Cycle and may take one (1) or more banking days from the date the transaction or activity occurred to post and settle to an account. "Banking Day" means any business day on which an office of the bank is open to the public for the purpose of carrying out substantially all of its banking functions.  The following activities do not count toward earning account rewards: ATM-processed transactions, transfers between accounts and debit-card transactions processed by merchants and received by Teutopolis State Bank as ATM transactions.  Monthly Qualification Cycle and Monthly Statement Cycle Explanation: "Monthly Qualification Cycle" means a period beginning the first day of the current statement cycle through the close of the current statement cycle. "Statement Cycle" means the period of time for which Teutopolis State Bank provides a summary of the financial activities and transactions that post and settle to the accountholder's account.  If you have met your qualifications for the month, you will receive reimbursements up to $15($4.99 per single transaction) for nationwide ATM fees incurred during the Monthly Qualification Cycle in which you qualified. ATM fee reimbursements will be credited to your account on the first day of your next statement cycle. ATM receipt must be presented for reimbursement of ATM fees of $5.00 or higher. If you believe that you have not been reimbursed the correct amount of ATM fees you must contact us within 30 calendar days after the Statement Cycle where the reimbursement was applicable in order to receive a refund.  Additional Information: No minimum balance is required to obtain the account's rewards.
