Automatic Savings Every Time You Spend
Save money without even trying! When you enroll in RBFCU Round Up, purchases made with your Freedom Debit Card will be rounded up to the nearest dollar and the difference will be funded by your own checking account and transferred into an eligible RBFCU account at the end of each day.
It All Adds Up

How Round Up Works
2. USE YOUR CARD
Use your debit card for everyday purchases in person or online! Setting up your debit card for recurring payments like streaming services or your gym memberships will also help you increase your Round Up savings
Every purchase you make with your debit card will round up to the nearest dollar and the difference will be funded by your own checking account and transferred into your designated eligible account at the end of each day. You can even transfer the savings into another RBFCU member’s account!

What is the Round Up program?
To help you grow your savings, the Round Up program rounds up eligible point of sale RBFCU Freedom Debit Card purchases to the next dollar and transfers the proceeds from your own checking account and into an active RBFCU personal or business Savings or Checking account designated by you. As RBFCU Freedom Debit Card transactions are posted, the round up amount is calculated at the end of day and moved into the designated RBFCU account. This service is free for members. External accounts at other financial institutions are not eligible to receive Round Up proceeds.
Example: When you purchase a latte for $4.38, the amount is rounded up to $5.00. $4.38 goes towards the purchase and the difference of $.62 is transferred into your designated RBFCU Round Up account.
For the transaction to round up, there must be sufficient funds in the Checking account. When funds are available to only cover the purchase, the transaction is completed without the round up amount. Round Up transactions are considered a transfer. They will appear on your Online Banking account and RBFCU statement.
You can enroll, opt out, or change the designated receiving account at any time via RBFCU representative. In the near future, self-serve options will be available via Online Banking.

When am I eligible to enroll in the Round Up program?
