it is a better than avg checking and savings (but i may change my mind if i confirm that there are no debit rewards for non military when i cal tmrw) i think but the affiliation doesn't really differentiate enough without further offerings for some i suppose.  it's a good deal for them, to take on more deposits.


 

There should be debit rewards for sig. based transactions for you... My fiance has it on his usaa debit card and he is not a full blown member, he doesn't qualify. I have the full membership, but only cuz I work there. if I quit before I've reached 5 years they'll take it away Smiley Sad I hope that doesn't happen cuz if you can get in, the benifits are great.

Please don't take this as being argumentative. Could it be that your husband has the rewards on his debit card because he is the spouse of a person with full benefits ? Over the last few years out of the non military people with no immediate military family members, at another discussion site almost all of them have no debit or credit card rewards -- there have only been a few with rewards who accidentally got rewards.

May I ask a quick off-topic question ? There's a problem with the way that my USAA account is being reported on one of my credit reports. Does USAA have a phone number, email address, or snail mail address for an internal department that deals just with reporting accounts to the credit bureaus ? Should I contact the Executive Resolution Department (I think that's the right name) ?

Not at all Smiley Happy actually, we aren't married yet, so he doesn't get any of my benefits. He really wants to switch his car insurance to usaa, and has tried several times, but can't. They won't even let him use the credit monitering service. All that is available to him is the checking and savings accounts. His reward info that came with his debit card (he actually just got it today so I happen to have it right here) says that he'll earn one point for every 2 dollars spent on qualified credit purchases.

hmmm... I'm sure they do. I'm on the insurance side of the business so I'm not as familiar with all the other stuff, but I'd be more than happy to find out for you. I'll ask around and let you know tomorrow night when I get home from work

Cool .. I'm very happy to hear that he as a non-military person was able to receive the rewards. Maybe that's a sign that he might receive rewards with the credit card if/when he applies for it ?

Well, then thanks for the fantastic auto policy that you guys wrote for me online last weekend! Smiley Very Happy Saved a ton, and our previous insuror (Safeco) got bought out by someone; forgot who, but our independent agent warned against staying with them.

I'm looking forward to having USAA stickers to go on the backs of our cars.

Of course, I'm running out of things that I can get from them...

umm.... how about their Amex or Visa (if they still have it) card ?

And I bet you don't have their ATM card that they call a Maestro card. Then your collection of cards would be complete.

And awhile ago they had a free keychain .. I forgot about that until just now. This was the address for requesting one:
