Saving couldn’t get any easier!
Pay yourself first. It’s one of the most frequent—and best— pieces of advice a financial coach can give! Yet, it’s one of the most overlooked financial health practices. By participating in the PFCU Pocket Change Savings Program, you’re setting up an automatic savings plan for yourself that makes it less of a hassle to save money and keep it saved.
Here’s how it works: PFCU Pocket Change works like an automatic savings account. Your everyday debit card transactions are rounded‐up to the next dollar amount and the difference is deposited into your designated PFCU Savings Account.
Here’s an example of what you could earn in just one day!
On this day, you earned $2.14 in Pocket Change! The Pocket Change will be transferred automatically to your designated savings account!
What You Need to Get Started:
- PFCU Checking Account
- PFCU Mastercard Debit Card
- PFCU Savings Account
How Do I Track My Savings?
Once you have opted in, simply check your designated savings account balance to see your transfer deposits appear at the end of each day. Watch your PFCU Pocket Change Savings grow!

What Else Do I Need to Know?
- PFCU will aggregate the rounded amounts from your consumer debit card purchases that post to your checking account each day and make a single transfer at or near the end of each day.
- NOTE: this includes any transactions tied to your debit card, including but not limited to:
- Person‐to‐Person payments (P2P)
- Automatic bill payments connected to your debit card
- MobiMoney Transactions
- Mobile Wallet Transactions (Samsung Pay, Google Pay & Apple Pay)
- Even though rounded amounts will be automated, your statement will still reflect your purchase amount and the round up amount will be listed separately on your statement.
- If on any day you do not have sufficient available funds in your checking account, the PFCU Pocket Change Transfer will not occur for that day.
- There are no maximum amounts of purchases or change deposits per day/month.
- Interest earned on all savings accounts. See rate schedule for current rates. All rates subject to change anytime.
- When enrolling in the program, any and all debit cards associated with your account will also be enrolled in the PFCU Pocket Change Savings Program. Enrollment cannot be done on an individual card basis.
You must have a PFCU checking account and a PFCU Mastercard Debit Card to participate in the PFCU Pocket Change Savings Program. Once opted in, PFCU will round up your debit card purchases made using a PFCU Mastercard debit card to the nearest whole dollar, and transfer the difference from your checking account to the designated PFCU savings account. Whole dollar debit card transactions and ATM transactions are not included. PFCU will aggregate the round‐up from purchases that post to your checking account each business day and make a single transfer at the end of the business day. If you do not have the available funds in your account at the end of the business day to make the transfer, the transfer will be canceled. If your debit card purchase is subsequently canceled or reversed, the corresponding PFCU Pocket Change transfer deposit will remain in your savings account. Credit transactions or adjustments will not round up. Participation in the Program is at the account level, which means all debit card purchases made using any debit card associated with the checking account will round up to the nearest whole dollar. You cannot enroll or remove individual debit cards associated with your checking account. You may enroll any PFCU Checking or PFCU Checking Plus account. If you receive a new debit card due to your current card being lost, stolen, or reissued, your participation in the PFCU Pocket Change Savings Program will continue. There is no need to re‐enroll the checking account. Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Savings and other restricted savings accounts such as Certificates of Deposit are not eligible to receive PFCU Pocket Change Savings Program transfer deposits. Organization and Business checking accounts not eligible to enroll. PFCU reserves the right to change or cancel the PFCU Pocket Change Savings Program at any time without notice.
