Pamela W., Alliant member
I switched to Alliant because I wanted to get away from big banks who supported things I don't like, and I really liked the idea of a credit union. It didn't hurt that the savings account rates were amazing, and I didn't have to worry about finding a specific ATM!
The $100 bonus is automatically deposited into The Ultimate Opportunity Savings Account after you’ve successfully made a monthly deposit of $100 or more for 12 consecutive months. To qualify for the bonus, you must keep a minimum balance of $100 in your savings account, and have $1,200 (or more) in your account at the end of the 12-month period.1
We’ve made this super easy! Set up one-time or recurring transfers in online banking, deposit checks via mobile deposit in Alliant’s award-winning mobile banking app, or even set up a direct deposit from your paycheck!
The minimum balance to keep your account open is $5. To earn interest, you must maintain a daily average minimum balance of $100. Alliant interest is paid monthly.
Federal regulations limit pre-authorized withdrawals to six per month per savings account.
Your current mobile deposit limit will appear below the amount field once you select an account in the Alliant mobile banking app. Your deposit limits can vary depending on your eligible accounts. For more information, tap the question mark icon at the top of the app screen.
Alliant deposit accounts are federally insured up to $250,000 by the NCUA. To learn the details of funds coverage, visit the NCUA page on the Alliant website.
Almost anyone can become an Alliant member! You can be eligible for membership through your employer, by where you live, or by becoming a member of Foster Care to Success, Alliant’s partner charity. (We even pay the $5 membership for you.)
Because of this unique offer, only new Alliant members are eligible to open this special savings account.
Alliant will need to do a soft pull on your credit when you apply for membership. A soft pull does not negatively impact your credit score. To ensure we can do this, please temporarily unfreeze your TransUnion credit report before applying.
While completing the application, use your most current personal information and your physical address (not a mailing address). You will have the opportunity to submit your preferred mailing address later in the process.
Have no fear. One of our member care representatives will reach out via phone call or email within 3-4 business days to gather any additional information needed.
Look at you, taking advantage of Alliant membership! You’re one step ahead. Alliant offers other promotions and contests for existing members throughout the year, so keep an eye on your email for those. Please make sure your email address in Online Banking is up to date.
