Consumer_NewMember_CartwheelTeaser_Final_Digital_500x500If you’ve been thinking about joining Verity Credit Union, or know someone who has been thinking about it, then now is the perfect time! Between now and November 1, anyone who joins Verity and opens a Cartwheel Checking account can earn 5% APY* for 5 months on up to the first $5,000 in the account.

Pretty sweet deal, huh?

It gets even better! If you have more than $5,000 in the account, you can earn 1.05% APY* on any balances over $5,000. And after the 5 month promotional period ends, your account will become our standard Cartwheel Checking account, which features 1.05% APY* on up to $10,000.

In order to get the high interest rate — either on the promotional Cartwheel Checking account or our standard Cartwheel Checking account — you do have to do a few things each month, but the qualifications are easy.

  • Enroll in eDocuments to get your monthly statement (this is a one-time enrollment and your statements will then be available in your Online Branch).
  • Make 12 point-of-sale purchases with your debit card and have the purchases clear your account by the second to last day of the month.
  • Log in to your Online Branch at least once. You can do this from any computer, and if you use a mobile device, just be sure to log in through a web browser.


Already a member? Get double the referral bonus if you refer someone to Verity and they open an account during our Sweet Deal promotion! That means you would earn 6,000 points with Points on Plastic for each person you refer! What can 6,000 points get you? A $50 prepaid Visa gift card! Or, keep the points and rack them up to redeem for airline tickets, merchandise, larger gift cards and more.

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.
