What if I'm already a BankDirect customer? Can I earn miles?
Yes you can. BankDirect's Mileage products are offered in addition to our current ones. So if you already have a regular BankDirect checking or MMA, you can convert it to a BankDirect Mileage checking or BankDirect Mileage Money Market Account to begin earning miles! Simply go to the Manage section of our site, click on "Convert your regular transaction Account(s) to Mileage Account(s)," and fill out the brief form.
BankDirect also offers Mileage CD's. You will not be able to convert a regular BankDirect CD to a BankDirect Mileage CD until the end of the CD term, but you can renew your regular BankDirect CD to be a BankDirect Mileage CD.
Although BankDirect will not be offering Mileage savings accounts, the BankDirect Mileage Money Market Account can serve as a 'savings' account.
