Check Card Rewards

  1. Check Card Rewards lets you earn rewards by using your German American Check Card to purchase merchandise and services. Through this program, you will receive targeted offers to receive rewards on purchases based on how you shop.

  2. Your rewards will typically be deposited to your account the month after you redeem the offer. Since we do not share your personal information with retailers, we cannot credit your account immediately at the time of purchase. For example, any rewards you redeem in the month of November typically will be credited to your account at the end of December. If you would like to see the offers you have redeemed or the total value of the recent offers you have redeemed, please visit the rewards summary page in online or mobile banking.

  3. Offers are matched on an account level, based on the purchases made with your German American Bank Check Card for that account. If you make different purchases with different accounts, you will see different offers in those accounts. You must use the German American Bank Check Card connected to that account to redeem the offers for that account.

  4. Offers are based on how you currently shop to ensure the offers you receive are relevant. If you seldom use your Check Card, you may not receive any offers until you begin using your card more. The more you use your German American Bank Check Card, the more chances you will have to receive relevant offers! You may not be receiving any offers because you accidentally opted out of the program. If you cannot access the rewards summary page or don’t see the “rewards” section in the upper right part of the new home page, you are not enrolled in the rewards program.

  5. You can opt out by clicking on the “Stop receiving all offers” link on the rewards summary page. This link can be found in the upper right part of the rewards summary page.
