Here at Verity, we continually look at how we can improve our members’ lives. For years, we’ve offered a rewards checking account (Cartwheel Checking) that gives people the chance to earn a high interest rate if they meet simple monthly qualifications. And while that account works great for many people, if you don’t carry a high balance, you don’t get much interest back each month. Not much of a reward if you’re earning less than $1 in interest.

So, we decided to try something new: a checking account that literally pays you for using it!

We are pleased to announce the new Cash Back Checking account!

With Cash Back Checking, you earn 2% cash back on up to $250 in debit purchases each month. That means you can earn up to $5 each month, or $60 each year, just for using your debit card! The Cash Back Checking account has the same monthly qualifications as Cartwheel Checking: complete 12 debit purchases, receive electronic statements, and log in to Online Branch at least once. That’s it! For many people, those are things they do already. And if you don’t meet the qualifications one month, don’t worry! You get another opportunity the next month.

Hi, I’m Kira. I joined Verity in early 2012 after a seven-year stint as a newspaper reporter. While I never thought my career path would veer off in this direction, I am loving my time at Verity. I recently moved from being a member services representative at the Alderwood Branch to being the marketing coordinator for the credit union.

I’m originally from Texas, but I have lived all over the country and the world, including Boston, Massachusetts, Anchorage, Alaska and Sydney, Australia. But in all my travels, the Pacific Northwest is the only place that has felt like home.

When not at work, I am usually home with playing with my son, husband, dog and three cats. During the rare times I don’t have a to-do list to plow through (and it’s not raining too hard), I can be found digging in the vegetable garden, training for a half-marathon, or grilling in the backyard.
