As part of our commitment to provide convenient service to our members 24 hours a day, we are currently working on a new mobile app which will allow you to pay bills right from your Apple or Android smartphones and tablets.
Mobile Bill Pay will be released soon for Apple and Android devices and it’s a true innovation in our industry.
What makes 3Rivers Mobile Bill Pay so innovative is the ability to pay your bills simply by taking a picture of your billing statement. The app will recognize the payee information from the picture, then you just enter the amount you’re paying and the payment date, and that’s it! It’s another way we’re working to make your money matters simpler. Not only can you save on stamps by paying bills electronically, but now you can save precious minutes by paying bills anywhere and anytime right on your smartphone or tablet!
Keep following the 3Rivers blog to learn more about how Mobile Bill Pay will help you save time and money!
Even in our paperless society, there is a good chance that someone is going to write you a check. Maybe you’ve got renters who pay you monthly, or a relative who sends you a check on your birthday every year. You might even be a small business owner who takes in hundreds of checks every month. No matter what your situation, we have solutions that can save you time and gas money by allowing you to deposit checks wherever you are.
Using 3Rivers Mobile Banking, you can make a deposit by taking a picture of the front and back of a check with your smartphone. As long as you make the deposit before 4pm on a business day (M-F), it will post that same day around 5pm. Deposits made after 4pm will post the following business day around 5pm. That means you can get your mail in the morning, open Aunt Sally’s card, and take care of your banking before breakfast.
To get started with mobile banking and mobile check deposit just download our iOS or Android app.
Business owners can also enjoy the benefits of not having to leave the office in order to process checks. 3Rivers offers Business Remote Deposit. We’ll help you get set up with a simple desktop scanner to take images of checks and send them securely to us. Once we receive the images, we’ll process your deposit. Below, there is a short video with more information about 3Rivers Business Remote Deposit.
To get started, contact any of our Business Representatives.
I’ll be highlighting more ways 3Rivers can help you save time and save money in the coming weeks.
We are happy to announce that we have completed testing on our Mobile Check Deposit feature of Mobile Access. That means it’s ready for you!
What’s Mobile Check Deposit?
It’s our remote deposit solution that lets you make deposits without having to visit a branch or ATM. Your paper check images can be electronically sent to your 3Rivers account using your smartphone.
It’s currently available for iPhone (3G, 3GS, 4G, and 4GS), and Android (OS 2.1.1 or higher). If you submit your deposit on a business day before 4 PM, it will be credited on the same business day. Otherwise, it will be credited the next business day.
Please visit the Mobile Check Deposit of our website for more information and answers to frequently asked questions.
When we launched our new mobile solution in April, we told you that, in addition to bringing in the highly anticipated Android app and text banking functionality, we’d be setting it up for easier expansion. Today, we’re happy to report that we have begun the final phases of one such enhancement.
Mobile Check Deposit will soon be available, allowing you to snap a picture of your check and deposit it right into your 3Rivers account. So, that means when Aunt Maude writes you a birthday check or you finally get that four dollar rebate from XYZ-mart, you don’t need to come to a branch or use one of our ATMs to deposit it. Just use your Android enabled smartphone or iPhone to take a picture and then safely destroy the original check at the appropriate time.
Keep watching for more details. In the meantime, if you are a current Mobile Access user on one of these devices, you will be notified that a new version is available. This update will allow us to complete our testing and quality assurance. If you want, go ahead and do the update. While we complete our testing, you’ll see the option to “deposit check”. Just be aware that it will not function until testing has completed – but at least you’ll be ready when it is.
Rhythm Checking officially launches on August 1 (that’s tomorrow!). This new solution offers exciting rewards options for using the services you probably already use every day.
- Do you make purchases with a debit card?
- Do you go online or use your mobile phone to manage your accounts?
- Do you use direct deposit or automatic payments or online bill pay?
- Do you receive your monthly statements electronically?
If you’re vigorously nodding your head “yes” then Rhythm Checking is going to be a great new solution for your spending needs.
Rhythm Checking members will have the ability to earn their choice of rewards types. If earning dividends is important to you, then you may want to choose dividend rewards when you open your Rhythm Checking account.
But, if you’re a frequent purchaser from iTunes or Amazon.com, you might consider the tunes rewards option. Plus, members opening a new Rhythm Checking with tunes rewards get $10 in tunes credits right away! So, let’s say you open a Rhythm Checking with the tunes option on August first and use your 3Rivers debit card to make at least $10 in purchases from iTunes and/or Amazon.com. At the end of the qualifications cycle, we’ll tally your purchases and you’ll receive a refund in your Rhythm Checking for up to $10 of your total purchases.
Earning rewards will be simple. Just complete these 4 monthly qualifying steps:
- Make 10 purchases with your Rhythm Checking debit card
- Login to Online Access and/or make a transaction (transfer of funds) to/from your Rhythm Checking with Mobile Access
- Do one of the following with your Rhythm Checking: Direct Deposit, Automatic Payment, Online Bill Pay
- Receive eStatements
Like you read earlier, you’re probably doing these things already so it couldn’t be easier to earn some really great rewards. Your chance to open a Rhythm Checking account is coming August 1! Yes, that’s tomorrow!
[Minimum to open account is $50. Earn $10 in iTunes® and/or Amazon® / Amazon.com® refunds with initial account opening regardless of qualifications.
