How can you earn more? Great question!

Jovia's Go Green Checking gives back when you do more. You can earn Jovia’s special bonus rate on balances up to $25,000, and a very competitive rate for any balances over $25,000 when you:

  • Spend $250 using your debit card for everyday purchases (like buying groceries).
  • Save some trees and sign up to receive paperless statements.
  • Either receive a Direct Deposit transaction of $100 or more each month or pay one bill a month with our Bill Pay service.

If you do all of these things, you’ll also get up to $20 in monthly ATM rebates, just in case the closest ATM isn't a Jovia ATM.

FAQs

How is the interest calculated on a Jovia Free Checking account?

If you meet all of the minimum account requirements to receive interest on a Jovia Free Checking account balance, you will receive the current bonus interest rate on balances up to $25,000. The balance calculation is based on many factors, including the average end-of-day account balance and number of days in each month.

The calculation used to obtain interest is: (interest rate / 365) multiplied by the average end-of-day balance of the account for the month in question multiplied by the number of days in the month.

Is there a grace period to meet the requirements when opening a Jovia Free Checking Account?

Yes, there is. All requirements to earn interest on your Jovia Free Checking account balance are waived during the first month the account is opened, and bonus interest will be paid. All three requirements including Visa® debit, direct deposit/bill pay, and e-statement must be fulfilled by the 28th of the following month to earn the bonus interest. You can track your bonus interest by checking your progress on our mobile app or home banking.
