How Does Debit Card Round Up Work?

Every time you use your Beacon Credit Union Debit Card, the transaction will automatically be rounded up to the next full dollar amount. At the end of each business day the accumulated amount from each of the transactions will be transferred from the checking account attached to your debit card to a Savings Plus or eligible loan* as a single transaction.

Example: If you go to a restaurant and spend $12.51, the transaction that posts to your account will be exactly $12.51 but you will deduct $13.00 from your check register. At the end of the day, that extra 49¢ will be transferred from your checking to your designated savings account (loan payments will be posted as a single transaction at the end of the business day).
