Welcome to Cash Rewards!
Instant cash back.
Purdue Federal Cash Rewards is a cash back only program, so you can redeem your rewards points as a cash deposit into your savings account, or as a donation to the Purdue Alumni Association or John Purdue Club. Your cash deposit occurs instantly and there are no fees!
Quick, single sign-in.
Simply log in to your account through online banking. From there you can view and redeem your rewards points conveniently from the account summary landing page. Or, if you prefer, you may also stop by a branch or call our Contact Center at 800.627.3328 to redeem your rewards points.
Automatic, aggregated points.
Through Purdue Federal Cash Rewards, rewards points earned by all credit cards on the same account will be automatically combined and available for redemption. So, you no longer have to call or visit a branch to request that points from different cards on your account be combined prior to redemption.

A: Yes. If your credit card is currently obtaining points, those points will transfer over to the Purdue Federal Cash Rewards program.
Q: Do my points expire?
A: Rewards points have no expiration based on accrual date; however, any points remaining on an account after 48 months of no card activity (i.e. no transactions and no payments) will be forfeited.

Q: If I have multiple credit cards on one account, will these points be combined?

Q: What happens to my points if my card is blocked, lost or stolen?

Q: What happens to my points if I make a return?
A: If you return an item you will lose the points you earned when you purchased that item.
Q: When will I receive the My Member Perks Credit Card Perk Points?
