The PerkStreet Financial MasterCard debit card is a product of the checking account provided by PerkStreet. To get the debit card, a checking account needs to be opened online. No credit checks are required and there are no fees associated with creating an account. The FDIC insured bank operates completely online - no branches exist around the country.
Features of the account are numerous. As a checking account holder, people can enjoy free checks and a simple online account management tool. A username and password is created to log in at any time of the day or night. An account balance can be viewed, past transactions can be looked up and statements can be printed or downloaded. It is also possible to set up bill pay for all bills that need to be paid.
Cash back is earned on the account. Virtually anywhere the card is used, at least 1% will be earned in cash back. There is no limit to the amount that can be earned. Depending on where the card is used, it may be possible to earn more than 1%. Various merchants offer higher percentages and a different category is recognized each month, offering a higher percentage in cash back rewards.
Many ways exist to access the cash in the account. The card is a debit card, not a credit card, so no debt can be established. The MasterCard logo makes it possible to spend money across the globe - online, over the phone and in person. There is also a PIN number on the account. It can be used as a debit card, for cash back with various merchants as well as at ATM machines. There are thousands of ATM machines that don't charge any fees.
Depositing money is easy, despite there are no local branches. Online transfers can be made between PerkStreet and other banks. Direct deposit from an employer can also fund the checking account. PerkStreet also provides postage-paid envelopes to make it easy to mail checks to the bank to be credited to the account.
Customer service also operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They can be contacted in a number of ways. A toll free number makes it possible to talk to a representative over the phone. It is also possible to contact a representative via email. Questions can also be posted on Facebook and Twitter, where representatives will answer them.
Applying for the checking account can be done online. As long as one is over the age of 18, an account can be opened and the debit card will be mailed out.
