*Referral Bonuses
The same bonus will be paid to the referrer (existing Member) and referee (new Member). The “referrer” bonus is available to Members of Orange County’s Credit Union who have checking accounts. The “referee” bonus is available to “new” Members only. A “new” Member is defined as a person who has never been an owner or signer of a checking or savings account or loan with Orange County’s Credit Union.

Bonus Payout
Referrer and referee bonuses typically paid within 90 days. Referral form must be presented at time new checking account is opened. Form must be completely filled out so we have adequate information to pay out the cash reward to the friend who made the referral. Referrer and referee bonuses will be paid by deposit to respective checking accounts. The notation “Tell a Friend” will appear on the referrer’s statement. Referee bonus paid represents dividends deposited into your account and may be reported to the IRS. Any applicable taxes are the responsibility of the recipient. Associates of Orange County’s Credit Union are not eligible for the referrer or referee bonuses.

Referee must open a personal checking account, enroll in eStatements, sign up and qualify for a Debit Mastercard (not all applicants will qualify), and either set up and receive Direct Deposit or make 5 Debit Card purchases within 60 days. Social Security can be used as a Direct Deposit for Basic, Interest, and Pacific Checking accounts. The referee’s checking account must remain open and maintain eStatement preference for 90 days or referral bonus may be reversed. Offer available for personal checking accounts only including the Pacific Checking for youth/students. Money Market accounts are considered savings accounts.

Offer only available at branch locations. Offer not available in conjunction with other offers. Individuals may not refer themselves for the referral bonus. All accounts are subject to normal approval standards. Minimum opening deposit is $25 for Basic, Interest, and Pacific Checking accounts; no minimum deposit required for Better Than Free Checking account.
