NOW REWARDS Now Offers 2% Cash Back to Qualifying Cardholders.
Introducing NOW REWARDS - Premier Points
Loyalty has its rewards! We value strong relationships and want to reward members for choosing Northwest Federal for their financial needs. Cardholders who meet the monthly qualifications*, based on the products and services you have with us, will earn 2% cash back on NOW REWARDS purchases everywhere. As always, you can redeem your rewards for travel, gift cards, merchandise, cash back or as a cash donation to specific charity.
If you don’t quite meet the qualifications for our highest level of rewards in any given month, don’t worry! You will still earn 1.25x points for every $1 in NOW REWARDS purchases1 in the meantime and can work towards earning premier points of 2 points for every $1 in future months1.
Points add up quickly with everyday use. Simply reach for your NOW REWARDS credit card when you're at the gas station, dining out, shopping online, buying groceries, making travel reservations, paying for your gym membership or other automatic monthly payments—you name it.

Monthly qualifications to earn 2% cash back on purchases*

- Home Equity Loan

- IRA Savings ($500 minimum balance)
- IRA Certificate or Regular Certificate

- Online Banking (must log-in at least once during monthly qualification cycle)
*The qualification criteria must be satisfied on the Primary Cardholder's membership account to qualify. Qualification for the 2x points is re-evaluated monthly. The qualification cycle ("Qualification Cycle") begins on the last day of the prior month and ends one day prior to the end of the current month. The additional .75x points (from the base 1.25x points) is accrued for purchases made by qualifying cardholders in the month following each Qualification Cycle ("Accrual Period"). The accrued points are applied to the cardholder’s total points during the first week following the Accrual Period.
To illustrate, below is an example timeline of how points are awarded:
- Qualification Cycle - Cardholder qualifies for 2x points in January’s Qualification Cycle which is December 31 through January 30.
- Accrual Period - Cardholder is notified of qualification in early February and is earning 2x points on all purchases in that month. During the month of February, cardholder’s online points total will reflect 1.25x points.
The cardholder’s additional .75x points will be made available to redeem for rewards by the end of the first week of March (totaling 2x points earned on net purchases in February).
Points earned in the NOW REWARDS program will expire 5 years from end of month in which points were earned.
**Balance must be greater than $0 on a Northwest Federal Line of Credit or Home Equity Line of Credit in order for this product to count toward the monthly qualifying criteria.
