Terms and Conditions:

*CashBack Rewards: When the Eligibility Requirements described below are met, the account will receive CashBack Rewards on Qualifying Transactions in the following amount: ten cents ($0.10) per SouthEast Debit Card point-of-sale transaction that posts to and clears the account during the Reward Period. ATM transactions are not included when calculating the number of Qualifying Transactions and are not paid CashBack Rewards. CashBack Reward will be calculated and credited to the account on the first business day of each calendar month following the calendar month in which the Qualifying Transactions occur. SouthEast Bank may change the CashBack Rewards amount, Eligibility Requirements, and/or Qualifying Transactions at any time.

Qualifying Transactions: Qualifying Transactions are SouthEast Bank Debit Card point-of-sale transactions that post to and are paid from the account during the Reward Period.

Failure to Qualify for CashBack Rewards: If the account does not qualify for CashBack Rewards during a Reward Period, all other account terms and conditions still apply. If SouthEast Bank has a valid e-mail address on file for the account it may, as a courtesy, but is not required to notify you using your e-mail address that the account did not qualify for the CashBack Rewards during that Reward Period. SouthEast Bank reserves the right not to provide notification of failure to qualify for CashBack Rewards for any reason, including the lack of a valid e-mail address associated with the account.
