Open a Loyalty Savings Account

Save big with one of our highest yield accounts: Loyalty Savings.

This account is a little different than traditional savings accounts because Pioneer's Loyalty Savings offers a 3% Annual Percentage Yield* (APY), but you can't transfer directly to the account yourself. Instead, the following deposits are made automatically into your Loyalty Savings:

  • The accumulation of funds transferred to your ChangeForward account (earned from rounding up Pioneer debit card purchases to the next dollar) are transferred into Loyalty Savings monthly.
  • Dividends from Pioneer's Reward U checking and any cash back earnings from WOW Cash Back checking are transferred into Loyalty Savings monthly.
  • Dividends through a Youth Savings account are transferred into Loyalty Savings monthly.

You can withdraw funds from your Loyalty Savings Account at any time like a normal savings account.

Loyalty Savings Account Features
Minimum Balance Requirements None
Direct Deposit Services No
Dividend Period Monthly
Free access to accounts vis myPioneer Yes
Free 24-Hour Telephone Teller Access Yes

It's a great option for holding your emergency fund, or just extra cash you want to grow, because it will earn a higher dividend than regular savings while letting you respond to fluctuations in the investment market. 

You can also make deposits to your account when you have extra money you want to stow away. Plus, our tiered structures gives you options to ensure that your funds will always earn a competitive rate.

With enough time, you'd build a large enough savings to match your financial goal, whether it's an emergency fund or enough to take that vacation you've dreamed of.

With the Pioneer ChangeForward Savings account, each time you use your Pioneer debit card we will:

  • Round up your purchase to the nearest dollar amount
  • Automatically transfer the difference to your ChangeForward savings account

To open your ChangeForward savings account, stop by your local branch, or use the myPioneer Personal Assistant app.

*ChangeForward deposits will be made daily for all transactions in one sum. Example: If you have a transaction for $6.10 and another for $224.90 in one day, the first transaction will round up to $7.00 and the next will round up to $225.00. This would move $1.00 into your ChangeForward account at day-end processing. ChangeForward will not round up a transaction if that amount exceeds your available account balance.
