    Get Rewarded to Refer a Friend

    You can refer up to four friends. We’ll give you $506 for each friend who opens an Xtraordinary1 or MyRewards3 Checking Account. Each of your friends will get $506 too! They just have to mention promo code RAF50 when they apply.

    How to Refer a Friend

    Step 1: Share your satisfaction with Connexus by referring us to a friend.

    Step 2: Either have your friend call us to set up a checking account, OR fill out a referral card, give it to your friend, and tell your friend to bring it to a Connexus branch when they open their checking account.

    Step 3: You and each friend who opens a qualifying account with promo code RAF50 get $506.

    Please note: If your friend calls Connexus to set up their checking account, they will need your name and address or phone number to authenticate you as the referrer.
