Reward yourself with cash back, gift cards, travel and merchandise!
Monona State Bank simplifies your rewards experience. When you use your consumer or business Monona State Bank VISA debit card, VISA Platinum credit card or VISA Business credit card you can earn valuable points which you may use to redeem for cash back, gift cards, travel and merchandise. In fact, the more points you accumulate the better deal you get when you redeem. You may even be able to combine the points earned with your debit card and credit card to earn rewards even faster! You earn points every time you use your VISA credit card and every time you choose credit and sign for transactions with your VISA debit card.
If you are a consumer, you can view your points balance, access the rewards catalog and redeem your points for the reward you want, including cash back, right through MononaBank Online.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: If I choose "credit" on my Debit Card purchase, does it then make it a credit card transaction?
A: No. Debit cards provide a choice for you when you make a purchase with your plastic. You can choose "debit" and enter your personal identification number (PIN), or you can choose "credit" and sign for the purchase. Either way, your purchase will be debited against the primary checking account linked to your card. A common misconception is that by requesting your debit card purchase be run as a "credit" transaction, you will be "charging" the purchase like a credit card-this is simply not true.
Q: So what is the advantage to me in choosing the "credit" option when using my debit card?
A: Scorecard Points Forward rewards you with points earned for any "credit" (or signature) purchases made with your Monona State Bank VISA® Debit Card and VISA® Business Debit Card. You do not earn points for any debit (PIN) transactions. With our new Points Forward rewards program, you earn 1 point for every $2 purchased with your debit card when you sign for the transaction, or are not required to enter a PIN.
Remember, you only earn points on the credit (signature) transactions, so whenever possible ask for or select "credit" before the transaction is completed. An exception would be in the event that you want cash back from your purchase transaction; you will need to choose 'Debit', as the credit option does not allow cash back (but you won't earn points).
Q: Do I earn Scorecard Points Forward rewards on my credit card?
A: Monona State Bank offers Points Forward rewards on its VISA® Consumer Platinum Credit Card, as well as the VISA® Business Credit Card. With purchases made using either of these cards, you earn 1 point for every $1 spent.
If you currently have a Monona State Bank VISA® Classic or VISA® Gold credit card and are interested in switching to our new VISA® Platinum card with Points Forward rewards, please stop by any of our locations and ask a Personal Banker for more details.
Q: Do my Scorecard Points Forward rewards ever expire?
A: Yes, points will expire if they are not redeemed within a three-year period from the date they are earned. We recommend that all clients monitor their points balance carefully and review their monthly Points Forward e-statement.
