On the last day of each calendar year (December 31), we will automatically redeem each positive signature transaction for $.05 and each positive PIN transaction for $.02, subject to a total annual redemption amount limit per member of $250, and deposit this amount into a Prime Share Savings Account linked to the Checking Account. Cash back will not be redeemed if the Checking Account is closed, any loan is delinquent or charged-off, or any Account has been expelled from membership at NASA Federal Credit Union. ATM transactions are not qualifying transactions. See Debit Card Cash Back Terms and Conditions for more information.
