  1. You’ll earn one point if you do 25+ checking account transactions OR have direct deposits totaling at least $500 to any one account during the month.
  2. You’ll earn one point if you have a total of $10,000 or more in combined investments6 and deposits (checking, savings, money market, etc.) with us.
  3. You’ll earn one point if you have a mortgage, home equity loan or auto loan with us.

BONUS: Members who have been with us for 20 years or more get an extra bonus point!

  • If you have 0-1 points, you are at the Member level.
  • If you have 2 points, you are at the Rewards level.
  • If you have 3 points, you are at the Rewards+ level.

Points System

Members can earn one point in each of the following categories:

  • Transacting: Make 25+ checking account transactions OR have direct deposits totaling $500 or more to a single account
  • Saving: Have $10,000+ in combined investment6 and deposit balances
  • Borrowing: Have a current home equity, mortgage or auto loan with Desert Financial
  • Bonus Loyalty Point: 20+ years of continuous membership

Monthly. Household points are calculated and updated on the first calendar day of each month.

Points are calculated on the first calendar day of each month (based on the services you have on the last calendar day of the previous month). Direct deposit and checking account transactions are calculated based on activity during the previous calendar month.

No. The point for direct deposit (max: 1 per household) can be earned by setting up a direct deposit of a minimum of $500 into a savings, checking or money market account.

The Loyalty Point is just a bonus point; it is not required to reach the top level of Relationship Rewards. This point is intended to help our longest-tenured members who may have borrowed in the past but no longer have that banking need.

Member Giveback Bonus

The Member Giveback Bonus is paid out in January or February and is based on your Relationship Rewards level in the previous year.

To be eligible for the Member Giveback Bonus, you must be at the Rewards or Rewards+ level of Relationship Rewards for a minimum of six months (not necessarily consecutive) in the previous year.

To increase the amount of cash you get back, do more of your banking with Desert Financial. For example:

  • Use your Desert Financial debit card more frequently
  • Apply for loans from or bring existing loans to Desert Financial
  • Bring all your bank accounts over to Desert Financial

The amount you receive will be based on your Relationship Rewards level in the previous year. To be eligible for the Member Giveback Bonus, you must be at the Rewards or Rewards+ level of Relationship Rewards for a minimum of six months (not necessarily consecutive) in the previous year. Special Note: We will consider both the original and simplified programs when calculating the 2020 Member Giveback Bonus. If you were at the Achieve, Prosper, Rewards and/or Rewards+ levels of Relationship Rewards for six months or more in 2019, you will qualify for the 2020 bonus.

Benefits

Yes, if it is a mortgage loan, auto loan or home equity line of credit the new loan will be included in the products used to calculate your Relationship Rewards level for loan discounts. If you will be at the Rewards or Rewards+ level with the Borrowing Point that you would earn with the new loan, you will receive the loan discount for that level. For more details, refer to the Statements of Terms, Conditions and Disclosures link at the bottom of this page.

You can receive Rewards and Rewards+ level loan discounts on a home equity line of credit, titled loan (auto, RV, boat) or other consumer loan. Mortgage loans are not eligible for this discount.

Households

A household includes all Desert Financial members who reside at your address. Members of your household can view their Relationship Rewards status in Online Banking, or register for Online Banking if they have not already.

It’s our way of expanding benefits to include your entire family. For example, if you have a spouse or children with their own accounts, calculating at the household level ensures their accounts get the same benefits as yours do.

You can request to remove yourself from a household and create your own stand-alone household.
