You will earn Points as long as your account and debit card are in good standing (that is, not closed, cancelled, blocked, suspended or otherwise inactive and not available for use).

Your individual four-week period starts at the beginning of each statement cycle (if you receive statements monthly) or the calendar month (if you receive statements quarterly.) We are required by law to ensure that you comply with this limit. If you exceed this limit after we have notified you of a violation, the Bank must change your account to discontinue the automatic services, close, or reclassify the account.
