Change Savings Account Customer Agreement
This document is an addendum (“Savings Addendum”) to your Change Card Program Customer Agreement (“Card Program Agreement”) and contains additional terms related to the savings account affiliated with your Card Account (“Savings Account”) with Inter National Bank (the “Bank”). Unless otherwise specified herein, the terms and conditions that apply to the Card Program and Card Account also apply to the Savings Account, and the definitions of terms given in the Card Program Agreement also apply to this Savings Addendum. “Recurring Direct Deposit” means that the Accountholder has arranged for the electronic deposit of Accountholder’s paycheck or benefits check, or a portion thereof, directly to the Card Account on at least a monthly basis and for at least three consecutive months.
Acceptance and Usage:
By transferring funds from your Card Account to your Savings Account, you agree to be bound by this Savings Addendum. Please read this Savings Addendum carefully and keep it for future reference.
Contacting Customer Service:
For customer service, additional information, or questions regarding your Savings Account, please contact Customer Service: mail us at Change Card Customer Service, P.O. Box 2067, Austin, TX 78767; call us toll-free at 1-877-7CHANGE (1-877-724-2643); or visit www.ChangeDebitCard.com (the “Website”).
All funds transferred to your Savings Account continue to be fully insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) for up to the maximum amount aggregated per Accountholder as published by the FDIC.
Savings Account Restrictions; Adding and Withdrawing Funds:
You may not open a Savings Account unless you have a Card Account which is active, is not blocked, and does not have a negative balance. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to restrict eligibility to open a Savings Account to customers who have pre-existing Recurring Direct Deposit which exceeds a minimum threshold per calendar month. If you close your Card Account, your Savings Account will also be closed. Only natural persons are eligible to open a Savings Account and not, for example, a business entity.
You may not make transfers from your Savings Account to your Card Account which are in excess of your available Savings Account balance. We reserve the right to require seven days’ prior written notice from you of your intent to withdraw any funds from your Savings Account.
To add funds to your Savings Account, you must first load them to your Card Account and then transfer them to your Savings Account. To withdraw funds from your Savings Account, you must transfer the funds from your Savings Account to your Card Account. You may not make any other type of outgoing transfer or transaction from your Savings Account; prohibited types of outgoing transfers from your Savings Account include, but are not limited to, transfers by check, wire, or Automated Clearing House (“ACH”). Purchase transactions and ATM withdrawals from your Savings Account are prohibited. We may allow you set up automatic recurring transfers from your Card Account to your Savings Account. If a scheduled automatic recurring transfer would exceed your available Card Account balance, the automatic recurring transfer will be declined and you will not be charged a fee.
As required by applicable federal law, you may make no more than six transfers from your Savings Account to your Card Account per calendar month. If you make more than six transfers from your Savings Account to your Card Account in a calendar month, we may charge you a fee. We will close your Savings Account if this occurs more than occasionally. Transfers of funds to your Savings Account are not limited except as set forth in this Savings Addendum.
Promotional Rate Eligibility:
We may offer a promotional interest rate for the Savings Account. If we do, you must meet and maintain the stated eligibility requirements to remain eligible for the promotional interest rate, and we may ask you to provide evidence of your eligibility and continued eligibility. We reserve the right to extend the promotional interest rate to all Savings Accounts, regardless of customer eligibility.
When your Savings Account is closed, we will transfer all available funds in your Savings Account to your Card Account. You may request closure of your Savings Account by calling or writing to Customer Service.
To access the funds from your closed Savings Account, you may withdraw them from your Card Account by any means permitted under the Card Program Agreement. We will not send a check for the available funds from your Savings Account as long as your Card Account remains open. If your Card Account is closed as well, we will return to you all available funds from your Card Account, including any funds transferred to your Card Account from your Savings Account, net of fees or uncollected transactions.
You agree to pay all applicable fees as set forth in the Fee Structure referenced in the Card Program Agreement. Your Savings Account will not automatically be debited if a negative balance has been created in your Card Account. We do, however, reserve the right to apply funds from your Savings Account to pay off any debt, direct or indirect, that you have with us, if you have made no good-faith effort to pay such debt in a reasonable period of time. Normal fees will apply to any funds you have transferred from your Savings Account into your Card Account. We reserve the right to change fees upon providing notice to you as required by applicable law. The most current fees will always be available on the Website.

Determination of Rate and Frequency of Rate Changes
At our discretion, we may change the interest rate on your Savings Account at any time.
Balance Computation Method
We use the average daily balance method to calculate interest on your Savings Account. This method applies a periodic rate to the average daily balance in the Savings Account for the period. The average daily balance is calculated by adding the principal in the Savings Account for each day of the period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the period.
Compounding and Crediting
Frequency: Interest will be compounded and credited to your Savings Account on the last day of each calendar month.
Effect of Closing Your Savings Account: If you close your Savings Account before interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest.
You may make no more than six withdrawals from your Savings Account per calendar month.
