Let’s get you set up with the right checking account for your lifestyle. We offer three types of checking: basic, dividend, and spark. Here’s a list of the features available with all Go Energy Financial checking accounts.
Don't overlook this extra for your checking account. We'll transfer funds from savings into checking to cover the amount needed to avoid a bounced check or declined card transaction. See the Fee Schedule.
Checks. No monthly fee. No dividends. Guess that’s about it.
See why we call it basic? But it’s a great choice for most of you!
It acts like a checking account, but also earns dividends when you keep a minimum daily balance of $500. That’s a nice extra.
If you're not much of a check writer, but still need a debit card, be able to make payments, and stash deposits, Spark Checking is for you!
Here’s how it works: Set up a monthly direct deposit of at least $700. Enroll in online banking and sign up for e-statements. Use your debit card once per month or more and write fewer than ten checks each month. Doable? If yes, then you’ll earn a nice dividend on your balance.
No cash? No problem.
Zero, zip, zilch. Use your Go Energy Financial VISA debit card everywhere VISA Debit is accepted. And, that’s pretty much everywhere. Your card is tied to your checking account, so purchase amounts and ATM withdrawals pull from your checking balance. The card is free and there are no interest charges like with a credit card. Use it online and in real life!
Need cash? Our ATM networks offer thousands of surcharge-free locations nationwide. You can also look for stores that let you get cash back with your purchase. Choose the debit option, enter your PIN at checkout, and you’ve saved yourself a trip to the ATM. If you don’t need cash back, select the credit payment option and you won’t need to enter a PIN.
Card Valet is available via a mobile app and safeguards your account. Card Valet can send you alerts and lets you define when, where, and how your cards are used. You can also establish transaction controls for dollar amounts, merchant categories, transaction types, and geographic locations.
Safeguard your cards: Turn them off if they're misplaced or stolen and back on when you're ready to use them. That is some master-level magic right there.
Hate having to update your credit card number with stores and merchants that have your card on file for recurring payments? The VISA Account Updater is at your (free) service and is automatically activated for Go Energy Financial VISA cards.
Your old card information automatically updates to the new card number and expiration date when you have this service.
If you would rather manually update your card, you can opt out of the VISA Account Updater service. Please complete the form to assume responsibility of notifying stores and merchants with any updated information about your card.
