Leveling Up

5 Ways to Level Up & Save More

Strengthening your finances? Consider making moves to Level Up, with our new member benefits program.¹ The more points you’ve earned, the higher of one of three levels given. Increasing benefits include select fee waivers, waived check orders, and rate discounts on new eligible consumer loans — all of which can help you save even more money and get ahead financially.

Here are 5 moves to consider:

1. Set Up Direct Deposit

Set your paycheck up for direct deposit right into your HomeFREE Checking™ account. Not only will you ensure you hit the qualifying minimum deposit for the Transacting point each month, but you also get access to your funds a day early.²

2. Work on Savings Goals

We’ve made it even easier to save for and keep track of your savings goals. Open a second (or third, or fourth…) Share Savings through Online Banking in minutes. Then, name it after your goal — such as “home down payment” or “vehicle maintenance fund.” You can also open a Save to Win 12-month Share Certificate online for a chance to win monthly and quarterly prizes. Every $25.00 in deposits gives you another entry (up to 100 per month; minimum opening deposit is $25.00).

Simply log into Online Banking and select Open Account. You can even set up recurring transfers to automatically move money into these accounts on your preferred schedule. You’ll earn a Level Up point for Saving once you have $10,000 or more in balances across all of your eligible share accounts.

3. Transfer Your Balances

Have a credit card elsewhere? You may be able to save money by transferring the balance to our low, fixed-rate Visa® Credit Card or Visa Signature® Rewards Credit Card, plus, your credit card qualifies you for the Level Up Borrowing point.

As an added bonus, purchases made with the Visa Signature Rewards credit card earn rewards points redeemable for merchandise, gift cards, gas, and more. And yes, these rewards points are combined with those earned with your HomeFREE Checking debit card, giving you more redemption power.

4. Bring Your Loans to SESLOC and You Could Save 

If you have a vehicle, consumer, or mortgage loan at another institution, consider refinancing it at SESLOC. We can help save you money on your monthly payment. Having another loan with us qualifies you for the Level Up Borrowing Again point.
