Debit Card Roundup

Debit Card Roundup

With our optional Debit Card Roundup, every purchase you make is rounded up to the nearest dollar.  The “roundup” is then deposited into a savings account of your choice.  Every time you swipe your debit card you’ll be saving money! 

How Does Debit Card Roundup Work?

Every time you use your NorthStar Debit Card, the transaction will be rounded up to the next full dollar amount.  At the end of each business day the accumulated amount from each of the transactions will be transferred from the checking account attached to your debit card to a savings account of your choice as a single transaction.

EXAMPLE:  If you go to your favorite coffee shop and spend $5.51, the transaction that posts to your account will be exactly $5.51 but you will deduct $6.00 from your check register. At the end of the day, that extra 49¢ (along with any other amounts calculated on other purchases throughout the day) will be transferred from your checking to your designated savings account. The next day, you go back to your favorite coffee shop and spend $2.56 and then to the gas station and spend $32.43, at the end of the day $1.01 will be transferred to your designated savings account and you will have deducted $3.00 and $33.00 from your check register respectively.
