Get Paid Early

Payday on Demand

Post your payday as soon as we receive the electronic file
Want to get your payday before payday? With #PaydayOnDemand, you may be able to get your funds earlier than your actual payday.

Not all electronic/ACH deposits qualify for #PaydayOnDemand. The ability to take advantage of the program and the number of days the funds are available ahead of the normal posting date depends on the company that is sending the deposit. You can request your early payday whenever it’s available.

Login to your online account or the Element app to get your #PaydayOnDemand.

Build Your Credit

Own Your Future

We help you establish or build your credit
#OwnYourFuture credit builder is perfect for starting and building your credit. Here’s how it works. We’ll process a loan for you (up to $1,000), and we’ll put these funds from the loan into your savings account. The funds are held in this account while you make monthly payments on the loan. The term of the loan is 12 months, and the interest rate (APR*) is very low. Once the loan is paid off, you will have saved $1,000 AND built a solid payment history on a loan.

We really love this product because it gives our members a tool to build their credit with very little effort. We also do a #MoneyWellness session with you so we can review your credit and give you more tips on how to build or repair your credit. How does this sound to you? Contact our lending team for more information.

A2A Account Transfer

Transfer money between Element and other banking accounts
With #A2A,  you can transfer funds from your Element account to your other banking accounts. You can also do the opposite. You can transfer funds from your other banking accounts to Element. You have access to all of this in your online banking account. Transfers typically take 24 to 48 hours to complete but could be shorter or longer depending on the business day.

#A2A puts you in control of your money (no matter where you keep it). We make your banking services easy and convenient, and that’s another reason people love us.

There is a one-time setup process to establish your account relationships. Set up multiple external accounts if you wish. Once your account relationships are created, you can start transferring funds in your online banking account.

Tip Yourself

A savings plan that makes a lot of cents!

We make saving money easy and fun by helping you save money every day, pennies at a time with #TipYourself. It’s easy to start tipping yourself. This is all you need:

  1. A Savings Account – name it whatever you want (Tip Yourself is a nice name)
  2. A Checking or Debit Account
  3. A Debit Card

Simply enroll in the program, and each time you make a purchase with your Element Debit Card, we’ll round up the total to the nearest dollar amount. At the end of the day, we’ll transfer the difference from your checking or debit account to your #TipYourself special account. You can watch your savings grow every day!

Here’s an example of how you can save with #TipYourself

Daily Debit Purchase

Extra Tip for Yourself

Amount to Deduct from Your Account

$49.07 – gasoline



$55.91 – pedicure



$89.63 – veterinarian (daggon dog!)



Your daily Tip amounts will be totaled and debited from your checking or debit account as one transaction at the end of the day. Using the example above, the total savings transferred into your #TipYourself account for the day would be $1.39. Multiply that number by 30 days, and you could save $41.70 in just one month! Sweet!

When you use our products and services, we contribute a portion to your favorite local charity. We’re proud to help support local non-profits and community programming where it counts … right here in West Virginia.

#ElementGives supports local community organizations. We give to your chosen charity when you do any of the following*:

  • $50 – when you finance a new our used auto
  • $50 – when you open and use a checking/spending account
  • $10 – when you refer new members to Element
  • $.05 – for every debit card swipe at a merchant

* Auto Loan Offer: Finance or refinance your auto ($10,000 and above) loans with Element and we’ll donate $50 to eligible charity in your name. Existing Element FCU loans are not eligible for refinance. Loan applications are subject to qualification and approval; not all applicants may qualify. You must use Promo Code of eligible charity at the time of your application. Debit/Credit Card Offer: You must enroll in Element’s #SwipeItForGood program and choose eligible charity as your charity. Each time you use your Element debit or credit card to make a purchase (using the “credit” option), Element donates 5 cents to eligible charity. ATM transactions and transactions using the “debit”option do not qualify. Checking/Spending Account Offer: When you open a checking account, enroll in eStatements, and open a debit card (and 6 POS transactions post to your account), Element will donate $50 to eligible charity.
