Top 3 Benefits of Cornerstone Plus for College Students

College is a pivotal time in your life. The combination of independence and responsibility can be invigorating, yet overwhelming for some. It’s good to have someone in your corner to help you prepare for life’s little hurdles—Cornerstone Bank can be that support system when you need it the most. In this blog, we explain the top 3 benefits of Cornerstone Plus as you navigate your college experience and strive to create a solid financial foundation for your future.

What is Cornerstone Plus?

Moving outside the box of online banking, Cornerstone Plus is a banking app that instantly turns your RITE Premium or RITE Extra checking account into a cost-saving, life-simplifying, all-around digital hero. All you have to do is open one of our two RITE Checking accounts to start reaping the rewards. Here’s how it can help you on campus and everywhere:

1) ATM Reimbursement

ATM fees can be a nightmare for college students, especially for underclassmen who aren’t yet allowed to have a car on campus. If you need cash and your bank doesn’t have any nearby ATMs, what do you do? With Cornerstone Plus, you don’t have to worry about paying those exorbitant fees, because we offer unlimited ATM rebates. You can feel free to use any ATM you want at any time, and get your money back.

2) Roadside Assistance

For students who do have a car on campus, we already know how painful parking fees can be. The last thing in the world you want is for your car to break down and force you to dig into your savings for roadside assistance. Why pay for a separate roadside service when your banking app can do it for you? Available 24/7 and free to use, Roadside Assistance provides up to $80 in covered service charges, so you never have to worry about car troubles when you’re away from home.

3) Cell Phone Protection1,2

In today’s age, we’re all lost without our phones. Are you covered in the event that you break or lose your device? If you pay your cell phone bill with your RITE Checking account, you don’t have to worry about it. We’ll pay to have it repaired or replaced, up to $400 per claim (maximum of $800 per year).
