PRIMIS NOVUS CHECKING
CHECKING WITH A BOOST
New to Primis Checking? Well, hello. Allow us to introduce Primis Novus – the account that pays you 6.00% APY on up to $50,000 for 6 months when you use it as your day to day account, shown by your direct deposit use. There are no fees and you can open with just $1. And that’s just the beginning…
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Call us crazy, but we think your bank should actually help you grow your money. Primis Novus is our way of rewarding you for bringing new funds to Primis and letting us earn your day-to-day banking relationship.
OPEN YOUR ACCOUNT AND DIRECT DEPOSIT
- We’re rewarding new funds with a boost! Get started right from your phone or computer.
- You’ll immediately start earning this account’s variable base rate and APY (currently 4.00% APY – holla!)
- Once your account is open, set up direct deposit.
- When direct deposit is up and running within 60 days of account opening and a direct deposit of $1,200 or more hits your account, your interest is boosted on the next statement cycle and you’ll earn 6.00% APY for 6 months.
EARN 6.00% APY FOR 6 MONTHS
- Enjoy the boost! For 6 months, you’ll earn 6.00% APY on up to $50,000 of your balance.
- This will begin the first statement cycle after a direct deposit of $1,200 or more hits your account (as long as it is active within the first 60 days of opening your account).
- Planning to keep more than $50,000 in your account? You’re still earning on all of it. All balances over $50,000 still rake in the account’s variable base earnings, 4.00% APY.
- As long as direct deposit is maintained, you’ll enjoy the boost for 6 months.
EARN 4.00% APY AFTER THAT
- What happens after the boost? You’re still earning.
- You’ll earn a first-class variable interest rate of 3.93% with an APY of 4.00%.
- Your entire balance shifts to this rate.
- Your account remains free.
- You’ll never have a minimum balance requirement.

Sounds like a laundry list, right? There’s a reason that over 29,000 customers trust us with their personal checking account.
WHY SHOULD I OPEN NOW?
When we reach 1,000 new accounts for the month, we’re going to pause and stop accepting new customer applications for that month. We don’t want to grow at the expense of our customer experience, so this pause will help ensure every new customer, as well as existing customers, have access to all of the support they need.
If we’ve hit 1,000 customers and you’d like to open an account, join our waiting list to be the first to know when accounts can be opened again.
