In order to qualify for a Relationship Rate, you must have a linked checking account (for the Performance Checking Relationship Rate, you must have a linked Performance Checking or Virtual Wallet® with Performance Spend; for the Performance Select Checking Relationship Rate, you must have a linked Performance Select Checking or Virtual Wallet with Performance Select) and meet one of the following requirements:
- Make a combination of 5 or more PIN and/or signature point-of-sale transactions (excluding cash advances) posted during the previous calendar month to your account using your Visa® Debit Card or to your linked Visa Credit Card.
- Have $2,000 in qualifying direct deposits ($1,000 for WorkPlace or Military Banking customers) in a linked Virtual Wallet with Performance Spend or Performance Checking during the previous calendar month.
- Have $5,000 in qualifying direct deposits in a linked Virtual Wallet with Performance Select or Performance Select Checking during the previous calendar month.
(A qualifying direct deposit is a recurring electronic deposit made by an employer or an outside agency. Transfers made from one account to another or deposits made via a branch, ATM, online transfer, mobile device or the mail are not eligible to meet this requirement.)
Starting with the calendar month following when you open your Premiere Money Market account, and monthly thereafter, whether the account earns the variable Standard or Relationship Rate for the entire calendar month will be determined on the first of the month based upon the number of qualifying transactions or direct deposit requirement from the previous calendar month.
If there are changes to your linked checking account (it is closed, changed to a new account type or no longer linked to your Premiere Money Market account), you may no longer qualify for a Relationship Rate, or the rates may otherwise change to those in effect at the time of the change.
We will only link accounts at your direction. If you have not directed PNC to link another account to your Virtual Wallet, the accounts will not be linked and you will not receive a relationship rate, applicable waivers of monthly service charges, or other relationship benefits on your unlinked PNC accounts. The requirement that you direct us to link accounts in order for you to receive benefits applied to all of your PNC accounts.
