Keep Your Family Safe Online With Our New Cybersecurity Awareness Course

January 10, 2017 8:16 pm

Identity theft? Cyberfraud? Email spam? Take defensive measures to protect yourself and your family. Because internet attacks are a growing and costly problem, The Citizens Bank is making a free online security course available to our customers right here on our website. This course will help to educate you about safe online banking practices, and also about passwords, giving out personal information, protecting children online, protecting your identity, securing your computer and home network, spam viruses and more such as opening up email and attachments.

Being informed about how to protect yourself against cyber-risks can be a key defense against fraud and identity theft. This course is for all members of your family who are regularly on the internet and is based on real-life stories. It is taught by Kevin Mitnick, an American computer security consultant, best selling author and known as the world’s “most famous hacker”.

Cash Stash Savings Grow While You Withdraw Fun.

May 2, 2016 10:00 am

Go on a saving spree with a Cash Stash account, now improved to help you save even faster. Every time you use your debit card as a credit transaction, the purchase amount is rounded up to the next dollar with the difference going in your Cash Stash account. Then, as an added bonus, we match your round-up savings by 10 percent. It only takes $25 to open and your Cash Stash account starts earning interest daily that is compounded quarterly. Matched funds are credited to your account on the first of each new quarter.

If you have more than three withdrawals or transfers in any quarter, or if the balance drops below $25, there is a $5.00 activity fee applied.

Contact your local branch or call us if you have questions about how Cash Stash works, current rates and fees, and see how small change can make a big change in your savings account balance. Round up to the dollar with the account that gets around.

WIN “A” SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM A GOOD INVESTMENT TO MAKE BETTER STUDENTS.

February 3, 2016 12:21 pm

Since 2005, The Citizens Bank has awarded one $1,000 to a high school junior or senior in each of the counties we operate in, with an additional $500 contribution provided to each school the scholarship winners attend. The program is simple. For every “A” you make, you can enter to win, all year long. The more A’s, the more entries you have, and the greater your chances. Just bring in your report card to your local branch. This year’s deadline to enter is the second week of June, and 13  $1,000 scholarships will be awarded along with 13 $500 school contributions.

Jackie Hester, Vice President and Marketing Director at The Citizens Bank, said, “The scholarship program will continue, and its success has evolved into our working to come up with additional ways to support our schools, including the School Stash debit card program.” Hester noted that among the educational or youth organizations that receive financial support or sponsorships from The Citizens Bank includes 4-H Clubs, Boys & Girls Club, Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts, Distinguished Young Women, Mississippi School Nutrition and United Way, “just to name a few”.

“In our role as an independent community bank, The Citizens Bank believes our investment in our children and their education is an investment in the future,” she said. So if you’re a Junior or a Senior, study hard. You make every day count. We’ll make each “A” count!

GIVE YOURSELF MORE CREDIT AND WHAT YOU OWN IS THE FUTURE.

December 28, 2015 12:10 pm

The Citizens Bank believes that it is our responsibility as a local community bank to help our customers reach their financial goals in new and innovative ways. A perfect example is our new Credit Boost CD. If you have no credit or need to rebuild your credit, we invite you to sit down and discuss this product with us. It’s a unique personal loan backed by a Certificate of Deposit that is designed to help you establish a good payment history, an important step in building a higher credit score.

As you grow, so do your credit needs. From a mortgage or car loan to better insurance rates or even looking better to employers, a strong credit score is a must. You rate number one with the people in your life. Isn’t it time you gave yourself some well-earned credit? Stop by or call your local branch today to get the boost you deserve.

OUR NEW COLLEGE BONUS SAVINGS ACCOUNT CAN GIVE YOU A $1,000 BONUS WHEN YOUR CHILD TURNS 18.

April 20, 2015 10:26 am

For many college students, they don’t just want a diploma. They want a purpose. That’s why we are now bringing more to college savings with the introduction of College Bonus Savings, because students that expect more from life, give more to our communities.

The Citizens Bank’s new College Bonus Savings Account gives you the chance to do more than save for college for your children. Open an account by their 10th birthday, save the monthly minimum amount each year, and we will give you a $1000 bonus when your child turns 18 plus interest.

It’s not just an education. For them, it’s a dream. We look at it as our way of investing in the future of our hometowns. Because we know that their passion is our future.

WITH THE NEW SPROUT SAVINGS ACCOUNT, OUR GIFT TO YOU IS THE FIRST $100 FOR YOUR LITTLE SPROUT UP TO AGE SIX MONTHS.

November 21, 2014 2:18 pm

The Citizens Bank believes there’s no more satisfying investment than a child’s future. And none that gives greater returns. That’s why we started Sprout and why we jumpstart your child’s savings by investing the first $100 when the account is opened for newborns up to age six months.

It’s the savings account that stays a notch above so you can stay a step ahead and sleep a little better knowing you are prepared for your child’s future.

It’s in our nature to invest in our children. Stop by your local branch to open the account that never stops growing. For all the money you’ll spend on what your child grows out of, this is the savings account for all that they’ll grow into.
