Rewards Checking is a free checking account with extra perks that are easy to qualify for. If you use a debit card for everyday purchases, Rewards Checking is for you.
If you prefer a credit card for everyday purchases, RewardsPlus Checking is a better account for you.
RewardsPlus Checking and Rewards Checking are profit sharing accounts. RewardsPlus generates more profit for our cooperative so it gets a bigger share of dividends.

This is where I’m at home. GreenState Credit Union has been a part of our family for over 40 years. My husband was fresh home from Vietnam, we moved up here for him to go to school. The credit union was always in the background helping us achieve our goals. From buying that first car to that first mortgage. I don’t know where we would have been had they not been willing to help us, all along the way.”
My husband and I are owner operators, meaning we own a semi and we haul products from point A to point B. If my husband does not run, we don’t get paid. When he was in an accident, the credit union had our back and we went to them and they did not hesitate to get us back on the road. They saw the situation and made us feel important, that we mattered. GreenState is family, I would never go anywhere else.”
I’m a neuroscientist studying to get my PhD at the University of Iowa. I discovered GreenState Credit Union when I was looking for a house. The experience at first was scary because I had no clue what I was doing but GreenState really walked me through the process. I feel like I was cinderella and GreenState was my fairy godmother who led me to my prince charming, which happens to be my house. Without GreenState Credit Union, I would be giving up my money and now I get to save my money and put it into my dreams.”
GreenState really means family, so they know you personally and they utilized that information to help you make good decision financially. I started a business that allows me to do what I’m passionate about everyday: work with kids and work with basketball. With the career change the first step we did is went to go to meet with the credit union. They’ve helped us through every change that our life has brought us. I feel like we’re ‘Darryl and Shawna’ and not a number, I feel like I’m a person at the credit union.”
