        Level Up Checking Account*

        Jump in on the perfect checking account for college students in Colorado.

        It's time to Level Up!

        We asked and you answered. We heard what college students want — FREE money — FREE ATMs — access to your accounts practically anywhere in the country, and an easy way to save for your bright future.

        Our Level Up Checking Account automatically rounds up every purchase to the nearest dollar, and puts the difference into your Canvas Savings Account. Opt to open a Canvas Reverse Tier Savings Account and you'll be earning 3.25% APY interest on the first $2,000. Or choose from our many other savings accounts. And, here’s the best part, when you hit $50 in Level Up savings, we’ll match you with $50. That’s FREE Money!

        And cash is king, so we’ll cover five non-Canvas/non-CO-OP ATM transactions a month. No hunting for the cheapest ATM.

        *Canvas refunds up to five (5) non-Canvas ATM fees per month for the College Level Up Checking Account. Excludes international ATM fees. Level Up means that when you use your debit card, the transaction will be rounded up to the next full-dollar amount, and then at the end of each business day, the accumulated amount from each of your transactions will be transferred from your Level Up checking account to one of your Canvas savings accounts as a single transaction. Both signature-based and PIN-based debit cards transactions qualify for round-ups; ATM transactions or cash withdrawals at a merchant do not qualify for round-ups. The Level Up service is the default setting on each Level Up checking account, but you may opt-out at any time. Canvas may cancel or modify the Level Up service at any time. On any business day, if any of the following occurs, the daily round up transfer will not occur for that business day: the checking account lacks sufficient available funds for the daily transfer to occur; or if any transaction has overdrawn the checking account.
