2. No fees – we have removed our charges and fees. This includes Zero wire fees to ensure that our customers don’t incur charges at our end to transfer their own funds.
3. The highest interest rate in the market* - we are now offering up to 2% interest rate which is the highest in the U.S. by far.

8.6. Cash Access and Transaction Limitations
With your PIN, you may use the Card^ to obtain cash from your Checking Account* at any Automated Teller Machine (“ATM”) or any Point-of-Sale (“POS”) device, as permissible by a merchant, that bears the Mastercard®, Interlink®, Plus®, or Maestro® Acceptance Marks. All ATM transactions are treated as cash withdrawal transactions. You may use the Card^ at an ATM and withdraw funds at a participating bank (“Over The Counter” or “OTC” withdrawals). ATM and OTC cash withdrawals, funds withdrawn at a POS, and purchases are all subject to the maximum amount that can be spent on the Card^ per day. Please refer to the Rates, Fees & Limits section for itemized cash access and limits for your Checking Account*:
You may use the Card^ to purchase or lease goods or services everywhere Mastercard® debit, Interlink or Maestro Cards^ are accepted as long as you do not exceed the available balance of your Checking Account*. Some merchants do not allow customers to conduct split transactions where the Card^ is used as partial payment for goods and services and the remainder of the balance is paid with another form of legal tender. If you wish to conduct a split transaction and it is permitted by the merchant, you must tell the merchant to charge only the exact amount of funds available in the Checking Account* to the Card^. You must then arrange to pay the difference using another payment method. Some merchants may require payment for the remaining balance in cash. If you fail to inform the merchant that you would like to complete a split transaction prior to swiping the Card^, the Card^ is likely to be declined.
If you use the Card^ at an automated fuel dispenser (“pay at the pump”), the transaction may be pre-authorized for an amount up to $75.00 or more. If the Card^ is declined, even though you have sufficient funds available, you should pay for your purchase inside with the cashier. If you use the Card^ at a restaurant, a hotel, for a car rental purchase, or for similar purchases, the transaction may be pre-authorized for the purchase amount plus up to 20% or more to ensure there are sufficient funds available to cover tips or incidental expenses incurred. A pre-authorization will place a “hold” on those available funds until the merchant sends us the final payment amount of your purchase. Once the final payment amount is received, the pre-authorized amount on hold will be removed. It may take up to seven (7) days for the hold to be removed. During the hold period, you will not have access to the pre-authorized amount.
All transactions relating to car rentals may result in a hold for that amount of funds for up to sixty (60) days.
If you use the 16-digit Card^ number without presenting the Card^ (such as for a mail order, telephone, or Internet purchase), the legal effect will be the same as if you used the Card^ itself. For security reasons, we may limit the amount or number of transactions you can make with the Card^. The Card^ cannot be redeemed for cash. You may not use the Card^ for any illegal online gambling or any other illegal transaction.
Each time you use the Card^, you authorize us to reduce the value available in the Checking Account* by the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. You are not allowed to exceed the available amount in the Checking Account* through an individual transaction or a series of transactions. Nevertheless, if a transaction exceeds the balance of the funds available in the Checking Account*, you shall remain fully liable to us for the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees. See these provisions for additional details if your Checking Account* balance becomes negative: “No Overdrafts,” and “Right to Set Off.”
You do not have the right to stop payment on any purchase or payment transaction originated by use of the Card^. If you authorize a transaction and then fail to make a purchase of that item as planned, the approval may result in a hold for that amount of funds for up to sixty (60) days.
8.7. Non-Mastercard® Debit Transactions
New procedures are in effect that may impact you when you use the Card^ at certain merchant locations. In the past, transactions have been processed as a Mastercard® debit transactions unless you entered a PIN. Now, if you do not enter a PIN, transactions may be processed as either a Mastercard® debit, Interlink or as a Maestro transaction.
Merchants are responsible for and must provide you with a clear way of choosing how to make a Mastercard® debit transaction if they support the option. Please be advised that should you choose to use the Interlink or Maestro network when making a transaction without a PIN, different terms may apply. Certain protections and rights applicable only to Mastercard® debit transactions as described in this Agreement will not apply to transactions processed on the Interlink or Maestro network. Please refer to the section labeled “Your Liability for Un-authorized Transfers” for a description of these rights and protections applicable to Mastercard® debit and non-Mastercard® debit transactions.
To initiate a Mastercard® debit transaction at a point-of-sale, swipe the Card^ through the POS terminal, sign the receipt, or provide your 16-digit Card^ number for a mail order, telephone, or Internet purchase. To initiate a non-Mastercard® debit transaction at the POS, enter your PIN at the POS terminal or provide your 16-digit Card^ number after clearly indicating a preference to route your transaction as a non-Mastercard® debit transaction for certain bill payment, mail order, telephone, or Internet purchases.
8.8. Transactions Made In Foreign Currencies
If you obtain funds or make a purchase in a currency other than the currency in which the Card^ was issued, the amount deducted from the available balance of your Checking Account* will be converted by Mastercard® into an amount in the currency of the Card^. The exchange rate between the transaction currency and the billing currency used for processing international transactions is a rate selected by Mastercard® from the range of rates available in wholesale currency markets for the applicable central processing date, which may vary from the rate Mastercard® itself receives, or the government-mandated rate in effect for the applicable central processing date.
You should get a receipt at the time you make a transaction using the Card^. You agree to retain, verify, and reconcile your transactions and receipts.
8.10. Card^ Replacement
If you need to replace the Card^ for any reason except at Card^ expiration, you can do so by calling 1-844-333-3101 or through the Aeldra App. You will be required to provide personal information which may include your Checking Account* number, 16-digit Card^ number, full name, transaction history, copies of acceptable documentation, etc.
8.11. Card^ Expiration
The Card^ will expire no sooner than the date printed on it. You will not be able to use the Card^ after the expiration date; however, a replacement Card^ will be mailed to you. If you need a Card^ replacement for any reason other than the Card’s^ expiration, you may request one at any time by following the procedures in the section labeled “Card^ Replacement.”
9.1. Bill Payments
With your Checking Account*, you will have access to the Bill Payment feature (the “Pay Bills”) through the Aeldra App which allows you to authorize us to make bill payments on your behalf to third parties. You will have access to the Bill Payment feature once your Checking Account* has been funded i.e. on the calendar day that your first successful deposit is made to your Checking Account*.
To initiate a bill payment, you must provide the name and mailing address of each individual or company you wish to pay. Once a payment is authorized, the payment amount will be immediately deducted from your Checking Account* balance. Payments made using the Pay Bills take the form of a paper check sent to the payee on your behalf using standard U.S. Postal Service mail. Please allow three to nine (3-9) business days for delivery of the check. Payments can only be sent to addresses located within the fifty (50) states of the U.S. Pay Bills payments are processed daily by 8 AM MST. Pay Bills payments initiated after this time will be processed by 8 AM MST the next business day. Aeldra reserves the right to refuse to process payments to any individual or company. If the decision is made to refuse a payment, Aeldra will notify you on or before the next business day.
These are the limits when using Pay Bills. Please refer to section 6.6 for details.
Pay Bills payments may be refused or returned by the individual or company to whom the payment was issued. The determination to accept this method of payment is at the discretion of the recipient. The U.S. Postal Service may also return payments in cases of expired or invalid addresses. If the Pay Bills payment is returned for any reason, the payment will be voided and the full amount credited to your Checking Account* the next business day. If your Checking Account* is closed when the Pay Bills payment is returned to us, we will issue you a check and mail it to the address we have on file for you.
Uncashed Pay Bills Payments: Uncashed Pay Bills payments are voided after 180 days. Funds from voided checks will be credited to your Checking Account* by 8 AM MST on the next available business day.
CANCELLING A PAY BILLS PAYMENT: You may cancel a single Pay Bills payment as long as it has not been presented for payment by calling 1-844-333-3101. Funds from any cancelled check will be credited to your Checking Account* by 8 AM MST on the next available business day.
LIABILITY FOR FAILURE TO STOP PAYMENT OF A PAY BILLS PAYMENT: If you request cancellation of a Pay Bills payment within three (3) three business days or more before it is scheduled to be made, and Aeldra does not cancel it in time, Aeldra will be liable for your losses or damages.
9.2. Aeldra Pay Transfers
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, your Checking Account* includes access to the Aeldra Pay Transfer Service (“Aeldra Pay”) via the Aeldra App. This service allows you to send money to other Aeldra members as well as receive money from other Aeldra members (“Aeldra Pay Transfers”). You may send money to another Aeldra member by inputting the intended recipient’s email address, mobile phone number, or unique Aeldra Username (the “Username”) and the Aeldra Pay Transfer dollar amount you would like to send. Aeldra Pay Transfers will be applied to the Checking Account* associated with the recipient’s email address, mobile phone number, or Username entered by the sender. Approved Aeldra Pay Transfers are automatically debited from the sender’s Checking Account* and deposited to the recipient’s Checking Account* within seconds.
You will not have access to Aeldra Pay to send money until your Checking Account* has been funded i.e. from the calendar day that your first successful deposit is made to your Checking Account*.
Your continued access to Aeldra Pay is determined by Aeldra in its sole discretion based on the history of any Aeldra-branded accounts you have, your use of Aeldra Pay in the past, direct deposit history and direct deposit amounts and other risk-based factors. Aeldra may suspend or terminate your use of Aeldra Pay at any time and without prior notice to you. If you violate the terms of Aeldra Pay, such actions may be used as a basis to terminate your Checking Account*.
Please note: The intended recipient must have an open Aeldra Checking Account* in order to receive an Aeldra Pay Transfer(s). If you wish to send money to a non-Aeldra member, your intended payee must sign-up and be approved for an Aeldra Checking Account* prior to receiving your payment.
By using the Aeldra Pay feature, you agree that you will not post, transmit, distribute, or disseminate through any material that: (a) is false, misleading, unlawful, obscene, indecent, lewd, pornographic, defamatory, libelous, threatening, harassing, hateful, abusive, or inflammatory; (b) encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense or gives rise to civil liability or violates these terms and the Agreement; or (c); in our sole judgment, is objectionable, restricts or inhibits any person or entity from using or enjoying any portion of Aeldra Pay, or which may expose Aeldra, the Bank*, its affiliates or its customers to harm, reputational risk, or liability of any nature.
Using the Aeldra Pay Transfer Service
To send an Aeldra Pay Transfer(s), login to the Aeldra App and select “Aeldra Pay” and enter the intended recipient’s email address, name, account number or the recipient’s mobile phone number.
You must make sure the recipient’s email address, name, account number or the recipient’s mobile phone number is entered accurately to ensure the Aeldra Pay Transfer is sent to the correct recipient. The obligation to pay the Aeldra Pay Transfer will not be excused by an error in the information entered.
By using Aeldra Pay, you are representing that you are the owner of the mobile phone number or email address listed on your Checking Account*. You consent to have the first and last name registered on your Checking Account* associated with your email address, account number or mobile phone number.

Any direct deposits received in a name other than the name registered to the Checking Account* will be returned to the originator.

The following terms are used to describe Electronic Funds Transfer (“EFT”) services. “Automated credits” or “direct deposits” are deposits made to your Checking Account* by electronic means. “Automated debits” and “automated payments” indicate payments authorized by you to be made from your Checking Account* by electronic means. When you accept direct deposits or authorize automatic payments/debits or transfers to or from your Checking Account*, you agree to these terms and conditions.
Other relevant terms and conditions described elsewhere in the Agreement also apply as long as they are consistent with Regulation E or Section II.

10.6. Right to Stop Payment of Pre-authorized Transfers and Procedures for Doing So
If you scheduled a one-time ACH transfer over the phone or recurring ACH transfers using a written authorization form, you can stop any of these payments. Here’s how:
To stop a recurring ACH transfer to a merchant you preauthorized to debit your Checking Account*, please contact the merchant to request cancellation of the recurring payment.
If the merchant with whom you arranged recurring ACH transfers from your Checking Account* is unable or unwilling to stop the transfer, call Aeldra Concierge Services at 1-844-333-3101 or email email@example.com to request a stop on such payment. Your request to stop payment must be received three (3) business days or more before the payment is scheduled to be made. Such a stop payment request will cancel a single, i.e. one (1) payment. If you want to permanently stop all recurring payments to a specific merchant, you may be required to put your request in writing and email it to Aeldra Concierge Services at concierge@Aeldra.com within fourteen (14) days after you call. If we ask you to put your request in writing, you will need to tell us; the name of the payee, the dollar amount of the payment and the date of the payment. If written stop payment notification is required but is not received within fourteen (14) days, only the first payment will be stopped, and all recurring payments will be honored as originally authorized.
10.7. Notice of Varying Amounts
If the recurring ACH transfers you make might vary in amount, the person you are going to pay will tell you the transfer date and the amount of the transfer ten (10) days before each payment is scheduled to take place. (You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits you set).
10.8. Liability for Failure to Stop Payment of Preauthorized Transfer
If you order us to stop a preauthorized payment three (3) business days or more before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.
10.9. Your Liability for Unauthorized Transfers
Contact us at once if you believe your Card, PIN or Checking Account* number has been stolen. Telephoning is the best way to minimize your possible losses. If your Card, PIN or Checking Account* number has been lost or stolen, or someone has transferred or may transfer money from your Checking Account* without your permission, call 1-844-333-3101. Under Mastercard U.S.A. Inc. Operating Regulations, your liability for unauthorized Mastercard® debit transactions on your Checking Account* is $0.00 if you are not grossly negligent or fraudulent in the handling of your Card^. This reduced liability does not apply to certain commercial card^ transactions, transactions not processed by Mastercard® or to ATM transactions outside the U.S. You must notify us immediately of any unauthorized use. In the event that the Mastercard® Zero Liability Rules do not apply, if you notify us within two (2) business days after you learn of any unauthorized transactions, you may be liable for no more than $50.00 if someone used your Checking Account* without your permission. If you do not notify us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your Card^, Checking Account* number or PIN and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your Checking Account* without your permission if you had promptly notified us, you may be liable for as much as $500.00.
Also, if you become aware of and/or your statement shows transactions that you did not make, notify us at once following the procedures stated in the section labeled “Information About Your Right to Dispute Errors“. If you do not notify us within sixty (60) days after you become aware of the transaction(s) and/or the statement was made available to you, you may not get back any of the value you lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking value if you had notified us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or a hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods. If your Card^, PIN or Checking Account* number has been lost or stolen, we will close your Card^ and/or Aeldra Account to keep losses down and send you a replacement Card and/or Checking Account* number.
If your Checking Account* changes you must immediately notify your employer or any other payors or merchants. You must provide them with your new Aeldra Account* number to ensure that your direct deposit and/or ACH Debit activity continues uninterrupted.
10.10. Our Liability for Failure To Complete Transactions
If we do not properly complete a transaction from your Checking Account* or Card^ on time or in the correct amount according to our Agreement with you; we will be liable for your losses or damages. However, there are some exceptions. We will not be liable, for instance:
10.10.1 If through no fault of ours, you do not have enough funds available in your Checking Account* to complete the transaction;
10.10.2 If a merchant refuses to accept your Card^ or Checking Account* number;
10.10.3 If an ATM where you are making a cash withdrawal does not have enough cash;
10.10.4 If an electronic terminal where you are making a transaction does not operate properly, and you knew about the problem when you initiated the transaction;
10.10.5 If access to your Card^ or Checking Account* has been blocked after you reported your Card^ or Checking Account* number lost or stolen;
10.10.6 If there is a hold or your funds are subject to legal or administrative process or other encumbrance restricting their use;
10.10.7 If we have reason to believe the requested transaction is unauthorized;
10.10.8 If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood, power failure, strike, labor dispute, critical service provider failure, computer breakdown, telephone line disruption, government or regulatory action, or a natural disaster) prevent the completion of the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken; or
10.10.9 Any other exception stated in our Agreement with you.
We may disclose information to third parties about your Checking Account*, Card^ or the transactions you make:
10.11.1 Where it is necessary for completing transactions;
