There’s nothing like the unexpected surprise of finding a $10 bill in an old jacket pocket. It’s like free money, so spending it doesn’t count, right? Let’s explore another way to rack up “free money” — a local unlimited cash-back checking account.

United Texas Credit Union members with an Ultimate Checking account can earn unlimited 0.5% cash back on all signature-based debit card purchases automatically, every month. Plus, there are no caps or minimums to worry about. Read: The more tacos you buy (er, transactions you make), the more money you get back in your account.

Other free perks include:
  • Access to your direct deposit up to two days early
  • IDProtect®
  • Cell phone protection
  • Rideshare protection
  • and more
Whatever your financial goals are this year, unlimited cash back just makes cents.
