Kohler Credit Union’s Refer a Friend program is available to new and existing Kohler Credit Union members who do not have a checking account. A referral code must be used at the time the new account is opened. Referral must be for a new Kohler Credit Union direct connect checking account with direct deposit of a minimum of $1000 a month and direct deposit needs to be active and funded within 60 days of opening the account. Mobile deposit of checks will be accepted in situations where direct deposit is not available. All accounts are subject to Kohler Credit Union's normal approval process. A $5 primary share account is required to be opened, in addition to the direct connect checking account, and represents your share in Kohler Credit Union. Kohler Credit Union reserves the right to disqualify any referrals in circumstances where Kohler Credit Union reasonably believes that referrals were not sent to Kohler Credit Union in good faith. Kohler Credit Union employees and minors are not eligible to participate in this program. The value of the referral bonus will be reported to the IRS, state, or local tax authorities, if required by applicable law. The recipient is responsible for any federal, state, or local taxes on this bonus item. This offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Participation in the Refer a Friend program carries with it a certification from the referring member that the referring member personally knows the referee(s) and the referrer is not acting as an affiliate marketer for Kohler Credit Union. The referring member can earn up to $600 for referrals per calendar year. If member is referred by more than one referring member, the first referrer would receive the incentive. Offer subject to change without notice.

Referrer: $100 will be deposited to your primary share account within one month after your friend fulfills the requirement for the referral program.

Referee: You must open and fund a new direct connect checking account with direct deposit with a minimum of $1000 a month and the account must remain open and in good standing for a minimum of 90 days. Within the month following 90 days of opening your new account, $100 will be deposited into your primary share account.
