Stanford Federal Credit Union has introduced a new Refer-A-Student Program that gives current credit union members a $25 bonus for referring a Stanford student to open a new checking account, plus Stanford students also get a $25 bonus for joining the credit union.
This is not the same offer as the standard Stanford Referral Program, which offers a $50 bonus to both parties, but is not targeted toward Stanford students.
The Stanford FCU Refer-A-Student Program is only available when a Stanford student opens a new checking account, and the bonus is $25 for both parties, instead of $50.
You must be a current Stanford FCU member in order to participate in the Refer-A-Student Program, but you don’t necessarily have to be a Stanford student to refer a new student, as only the new member needs to be a Stanford student.
How To Earn the $25 Refer-A-Student Bonus
1. Visit the Stanford Refer-A-Student Program to refer a Stanford student using the referral form.
2. The Student referee must open a Stanford FCU personal checking account with a minimum $5 balance within 30 days of receiving the referral certificate.
3. The Student referee must complete 3 debit card transactions within 30 days of opening the account online or receiving the referral certificate.
4. Both parties will receive a $25 bonus when the Student completes the requirements.
Refer-A-Student Program Requirements
If the new student does not open the account online, a referral coupon must be completely filled out and presented at the time the account is opened, or you must bring the referral email at the time of the new account opening.
Only new student membership accounts are eligible.
New students are not eligible for this offer if you had a membership with Stanford FCU that was closed within the last 3 months.
The accounts must remain open and in good standing for 90 days.
If the new membership is closed within the first 6 months, there is a $25 early membership closing fee.
Stanford FCU employees and officials are not eligible for this offer.
This offer is not good with any other Stanford FCU promotional offers.
You may also be able to get this $100 Stanford Checking Account Bonus that is available to new members without a referral requirement.
