Journey Checking's New Holiday Rate

Journey Checking offers a competitive 5.00% / 5.20% APY* on daily balances up to $10,000, plus you’ll never have to pay a monthly service fee. You’ll also have access to over 30,000 surcharge-free ATMs nationwide and there is no charge for money orders and bank checks.

Built with technology in mind, Journey Checking is built around easily managing your money on the go. You can track spending, pay bills, reimburse friends and transfer money through digital banking. Even better, you can receive transaction alerts, manage your credit and control your debit card and wallet from your phone for added security.


Community-Driven Banking

Journey Checking was developed to be good for you and our community, so when you debit, we donate! For every debit card transaction, OlyFed dedicates 2 cents to a local nonprofit. This has amounted to more than $150,000 for our community.


Making The Switch is Easy

It’s super easy to switch to our free checking accounts! With just a few clicks of your mouse, you’re on your way to digitally transfer your direct deposits and automatic payments to your new OlyFed account.

Ask your OlyFed banker how to get the ClickSWITCH process rolling by contacting us or visiting any of our branch locations.

Beyond Banking

Mom with child on computerWe believe banking should be simple, elegant, and dare we say enjoyable. We believe in keeping the fine print and fees to a minimum and creating transformational relationships built on trust, not transactional ones based on maximizing profits. Our people are incentivized to serve, not sell, and our products are crafted to do the same thing.

To us, you’re more than the balance of your bank account: Guided by our “Better Fedder” training and a compassionate and caring attitude, we nurture relationships to help you define and achieve your financial goals, which is why we put people above the bottom line.


Checking that’s Good for You and Our Community

We contribute two cents to local charitable organizations with your debit card transactions. By swiping, using your digital wallet, or ordering online, your OlyFed debit card will generate two cents to be donated to a nonprofit in the South Sound!

This charitable gift-giving program is free, year-round and works with any OlyFed debit card that’s tied to an active account. It’s an automatic stream of donations to a local nonprofit simply by using your OlyFed debit card for transactions that you normally make.

Our Two Cent Campaign launched in November of 2018 and has provided more than $150,000 in support to more than 50 local nonprofit organizations whose missions are to improve the quality of life in our area. The benefiting charity changes each month and all you have to do is continue the things you love like shopping, eating out and grabbing a movie with friends.



As a mutual bank, we’re accountable to you, our customers, not corporate shareholders. With our business model, you’re more than a customer, you’re a stakeholder, which means more for your wallet, for your future and for our community.

This translates to many low to no-cost product and service options. It means we’re focused on helping you get ahead with budgets, financial plans and accounts that provide safe, sustainable and meaningful ways to save.

When you bank with us, you can rest assured knowing you’re doing business with a bank that puts our local neighbors first. Each year, we donate anywhere from 10 to 15% of our profits back to the community, which totaled more than $460,000 last year! Furthermore, we foster a culture of volunteerism among our people, who happily contributed more than a thousand hours of service last year.
