The Convenience You Need
You do research for your homework online, so why wouldn't you bank online? With Bank of Albuquerque's checking account for students, you'll have access to free Online and Mobile Banking, so you can deposit checks, transfer funds and view your transaction history right from your smartphone.
The Flexibility You Want
Our checking account for students lets you use our free Visa® Debit Card online or in stores across the world. We also offer one free overdraft refund per year, so if you accidentally overdraft, you are protected.
Reach Your Goals Faster
The best time to start saving is when you're young, so our checking account for students comes with access to QuickSave, a tool designed to help you save money automatically. You'll be surprised by how quickly it adds up!
How It Works
Saving for the future is important, and the younger you are when you start, the better your results will be. QuickSave is a tool that allows you to help build your savings by automatically putting a set amount into your savings account every time you use your debit card to make a qualifying purchase. And, we'll match a portion of those savings!
When you set up your QuickSave account, you'll determine how much you'd like to save with each transaction, either $0.25 or $0.50, and we'll link everything to your Bank of Albuquerque savings or money market account. Each night, we'll take the number of debit card and online Bill Pay transactions, multiply the total by your QuickSave amount, the $0.50 or $0.25, and then transfer that amount to your savings or money market account in one transfer. Each year, we'll automatically transfer our match amount within 6-8 weeks after the anniversary date of your account. After you've enrolled, you can see the transfer activity in both your checking account and savings account.
The sky's the limit for how much you can save using QuickSave, and Bank of Albuquerque will match up to $250 of those savings each year. To calculate how much you might save this year, try using this calculator today.
Just tell us the amount you want to transfer to your savings account with each transaction and we'll do the rest. Stop by one of our convenient banking centers or call an ExpressBanker at (800) 583-0709 to get started today!
