Member Rewards

Credit unions must find innovative ways to stand out from their competitors. Offering competitive member rewards programs is one way to quickly become your members’ primary financial institution. An incentive program that rewards members for using products and services, credit unions can: 

  • Increase Card and Product Usage 
  • Encourage Member Retention 
  • Acquire New Members 
  • Foster Connections 
  • Build Member Loyalty 

One solution would not fit the needs of each credit union. While we can integrate with nearly any program, our team of experts has vetted and is pleased to promote three primary rewards solutions: Synergent Rewards, uChoose Rewards®, and ScoreCard® Rewards by FIS.

uChoose Rewards

Points Rewards, Merchant Loyalty, Charitable Donations 

uChoose Rewards is a points-based member loyalty program that allows members to earn points for using their credit union-issued debit or credit cards. This program is able to serve both your consumer and small business members, encourages member retention, and incentivizes debit and/or credit card use.  

  • Boost transactions 
  • Increase revenue

How It Works 

As a white-labeled program, your members see your logo when they are interacting with the rewards platform. And your credit union has the flexibility to select the type of funding program that aligns best with your goals and objectives. It can be merchant-funded, issuer-funded, or a blend of the two. The points earned by members can be redeemed for: 

  • Gift cards 
  • Travel 
  • Cashback 
  • Merchandise 

With over a million redemption options, there’s truly something for everyone. The Merchant Network includes over 8,000 local and regional retailers, along with well-known national chains. You can even add your own business members to the network for free! To further drive usage and points accrual, members have the option of pooling points for faster accumulation toward redemption.
