It’s easy to fall into the same old dull routine when you log into online banking. You check your balances, pay some bills, make a few transfers, and you’re done. In and out.

But if you haven’t taken time to explore all the nooks and crannies of your CoastHills online banking portal in a while, you might be happy to take a test drive of some brand new features.

  • Suspend and reactivate activity or set spending limits by taking full control of your debit card management.
  • Easily check your up-to-date eligibility for Super Checking dividends anytime.
  • And see exactly what benefits and discounts you qualify for by seeing where you stand in our Relationship Rewards program.

Other Options (1)Finding all of these helpful links is easy. Just log in to your online banking account at From there, click on “Other Options” in the menu along the top of the page. You’ll be presented with a list of features you may not have even known were there, including the new ones focused on below:

Earn money-saving perks just for being you (and banking with CoastHills)

Every account you have with us — whether it’s a savings account, a checking account, an auto loan, a mortgage, an investment portfolio, etc. — counts as points toward special free member benefits and exclusive discounts. We call it Relationship Rewards.

For instance, our Priority Members never have to pay for cashier’s checks or money orders. Elite Members get those freebies and more plus a .10% APR rate reduction on loans*. Awesome Members get all that AND free Super Checking, a $500 mortgage processing fee discount and a .25% APY increase on certificate rates**.

And that’s just for starters. For a full list of member benefits, check out the details of our Relationship Rewards program.  

Basically, the more you bank with CoastHills, the more rewards you get.

And now you can see exactly where you stand when you login to online banking. Our scoring matrix tells you precisely how many points your accounts have earned you. See which account activities can earn you more points and help you on your way to becoming Awesome.

Take ownership of your debit spending like never before

For CoastHills Platinum Rewards and Encore Signature Visa cardholders, we already have a mobile wallet app that gives you the power to pause and restart activity on your debit card on both Android and iOS. (If you haven’t seen that app, check out its really cool features. It allows you to set up spending alerts and make mobile payments with your CoastHills cards anywhere Apple Pay and Android Pay are accepted.)

And now, you can pause and re-start activity on your debit card — and more — from right within your online banking portal.

Our new Debit Card Management feature also gives you the power to temporarily increase the spending limit on any debit card associated with your checking account. By default, you can spend up to $1,000 on PIN-based transactions and $2,500 on signature-based transactions. If you have a larger purchase you’d like to make, just increase the limit from within online banking and have the freedom to spend more.

Make sure your Checking is Super. The easy way

The CoastHills dividend-earning Super Checking account gives you some of the best dividend rates around — 1.25 percent on balances up to $25,0001. And with foreign ATM fee refunds up to $10 per month4, you can withdraw money from any ATM with confidence.

All you have to do is satisfy four usage requirements. And with our new Super Checking Eligibility tracker, it’s easier than ever before to maximize the benefits of Super Checking.

The first three requirements are simple.

  • Provide us your valid email address
  • Receive eStatements
  • Schedule one or more direct deposits per month

The fourth requires a little more counting: Have at least 10 debit transactions during the month.

And here’s where our tracker comes in handy. Log on and take a look to see exactly how many debit transactions you’ve made in one up-to-date and easy-to-read table. The table also tracks how many direct deposits you’ve made over the course of the month.

When you see a “YES!” in the columns of all four qualifying criteria, take comfort knowing your dividends will be automatically deposited into your account when the calendar flips to a new month.
