How It Works

If you’re happy with your simply free Student Checking account, we’d love for you to refer another Stanford University student and earn $25! When your friend opens a new Stanford FCU Student Checking account, we’ll deposit $25 in each of your accounts by the next day. We’ve made it really easy — just log into Mobile or Online Banking and click on the Refer A Student tab in the main menu.

Terms and Conditions

The Stanford FCU Refer A Student program is available to Stanford FCU members age 18 and older. Both the referring member and referred member must be students at Stanford University. Each will receive $25 deposited into their Student Checking accounts after the new account is opened, and the referring member was identified at the time of opening either via a unique promo code or in-person when the referring member was identified by name.

The promo code generated online is unique to the referring member, and can be used by an unlimited number of referred new student members. There is no maximum to the number of new student members that an existing member can refer. A referred student may only receive one $25 deposit, regardless of the number of accounts or memberships opened. If the promo code is not used and the referring student was not identified at the time of account opening, no payment will be made to either student.

Stanford FCU reserves the right to change or cancel this program without notice. Stanford FCU employees, family members and volunteers are not eligible. We reserve the right to disqualify any referrals in circumstances where we reasonably believe they were not sent to us in good faith.

The $25 will be deposited into both accounts by the following business day. Taxes due on the bonus deposits are the sole responsibility of the recipient. Stanford FCU will report all bonus deposits to the appropriate state and federal agencies as required by applicable law. This offer cannot be combined with any other Stanford FCU promotional offers. This offer is invalid if the referred member had a Stanford FCU account that was closed within the last three months. Accounts are subject to all terms and conditions set forth in the current Important Account Information for Members Booklet and the Disclosure Fee Schedule.
