Turn your shopping and everyday errands into cash for your school.
A Fundraising Effort for Schools
With each credit based MIDFLORIDA debit card purchase you can earn up to 10¢ per transaction for the school of your choice – regardless of your purchase amount. Buy a drink and some snacks at the convenience store, earn 10¢. Pick up your dry cleaning, earn 10¢. Order something online, earn 10¢. You get the idea. Plus, it’s quick and easy to sign up and just as easy to earn the Extra Credit your school deserves. Just follow these steps:
1. Designate a School
Sign into Online Banking and select the checking account for the debit card you want to enroll. Then click on the Debit Card Rewards program on the Account Details page and choose the school you want to earn rewards for.
2. Choose Credit
Choose the ‘credit’ option when you shop using your MIDFLORIDA Debit card.
Note: Selecting “credit” for your transaction will not change your debit transaction, it will still deduct from your checking account. Choosing credit just means your transaction will travel a different path to reach your account and on the way earn Extra Credit for your school. PIN based transactions and ATM transactions do not earn Extra Credit.
3. Earn Money for your School
Watch your school earn the Extra Credit – up to 10¢ per transaction!

*The MIDFLORIDA Extra Credit School Rewards Program is for elementary, middle and high schools within MIDFLORIDA Credit Union’s service area. Only one school can be selected per checking account. The 10¢ per transaction may be subject to change without notice. To earn the per-transaction donation, you must use your debit card as a credit when making purchases. Purchases made using a PIN or transacctions at any ATM will not earn Extra Credit. Donated monies are accrued daily and paid annually, and do not earn interest. To receive the annual payout, the school’s balance of money earned must reach a minimum of $25. If the minimum is not met, the balance will carry over to the following year, up to a maximum of four payout periods. Schools must be registered with MIDFLORIDA’s Extra Credit School Rewards Program to participate. Freedom Banking does not qualify for debit card rewards.
