Smart Rewards is the name of the program that enables USSFCU members to earn redeemable points with their USSFCU Visa® debit cards. It's the same program that rewards points to USSFCU members who hold USSFCU Visa® Smart Rewards credit cards.
To earn points through Smart Rewards with USSFCU Visa® debit cards, members simply choose the "credit option" at the point of sale and sign a receipt for their purchase. For every four dollars spent via this "credit option" USSFCU Visa® debit card holders earn a point through the Smart Rewards program.
Smart Rewards points are redeemable for a wide range of travel rewards, gift certificates, and cash! And one of the Smart Rewards program's most popular features is that the rewards it offers aren't tied to any specific airline, hotel chain, or company's merchandise. Below are a few additional points regarding Smart Rewards:
- Smart Rewards can be earned on purchases made at any retailer or vendor that accepts Visa®
- Smart Rewards requires no sign-up or maintenance fees
- Smart Rewards points accrue automatically without requiring any initiation forms or processes
- Smart Rewards points are earned on card purchases where the USSFCU Member has provided a signature — and they are not earned when purchases are made by entering a PIN
- Smart Rewards for USSFCU Visa® debit card holders are available only for USSFCU debit cards tied to a USSFCU checking account
- Smart Rewards points can only be earned on purchases, and cannot be earned on cash advances or cash transfers
