A friendship is worth more than matching bracelets. In this case, $100 more.


If you want $50 just for being a good friend, then you've come to the right web page. Grab a friend and join the SAFE BFF (Banking Friends Forever) Program. All you have to do is invite your friend to open a new checking with SAFE. After he/she completes a few banking achievements listed below, we'll award you and your friend $50 each.

As a SAFE member, you already know about our superior customer service and exceptional financial benefits. So, tell your friend what it's like to have a checking account with SAFE, and let them enjoy the BFF perks and advantages, too.

Here's what YOU need to do:
1. Download and print the BFF Referral Card (provided download link)
2. Fill-out the information on the card
3. Give your friend the filled-out BFF Referral Card, and remind them to submit it when they open their new SAFE checking account (at a SAFE branch or here)
Here's what YOUR BFF needs to do:
1. Get the completed BFF Referral Card from you
2. Open a new SAFE checking account with a $25 minimum opening balance (at a SAFE branch or here)
3. Complete three easy steps within 60 days of opening the account.*
  • Make 25 or more debit card purchases. No sweat, right?
  • Receive at least one direct deposit to the account.
  • Enroll in eStatements. Doesn't get much easier than that.

Once all three transactions activities have been met, SAFE Federal Credit Union will deposit $50 in both of your accounts. Because that's what BFFs do.

* The debit card purchases, online bill payments and eStatement opt-in must occur within 60 days after opening the account. Full eligibility rules below.

BANKING FRIENDS FOREVER PROGRAM Referral must be from a SAFE Federal Credit Union checking member only. Not valid on business accounts. Referral coupon must be presented at the time of account opening. Referral must be a new personal checking account to the credit union age 18 or older. BONUS ELIGIBILITY To qualify for the $50 bonus, the referred member must first open any SAFE checking account ($25 min. opening balance). Then, within 60 days after opening the account: 1. Make at least 25 debit card purchases, 2. Receive at least one direct deposit to the account. 3. Enroll in e-statements. If the conditions are met within the first 60 days after the account is opened and the account is current (no negative balances), both the new checking member and referring member will receive a $50 bonus incentive posted to their primary share account. The value of the bonus will be reported as interest earned as required by law and is subject to 1099 tax reporting. This offer is available on first-time checking accounts only. Information provided by referring member must match current Credit Union records. If we are unable to locate the referring member, neither account will receive the $50 deposit. Employees of SAFE Federal Credit Union are not eligible to participate as a referrer. The referred member cannot be valid on any second or new joint checking account of a current member. Individuals who are a signer on a SAFE Federal Credit Union checking account that was closed within the last 90 days also are ineligible.
