It's Back for a Limited-Time Only!

We’ve doubled our referral bonus from $50 to $100. Simply refer-a-friend to open any new checking account with Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust between February 15th - April 15th and you’ll both receive $100* and a 3-gallon Native Iowan tree**. Unlimited bonuses!*

50% of Cedar Rapids’ tree canopy was destroyed in the August 2020 derecho. To help our community begin the regrowth process, you’ll both receive a strong, 3-gallon native Iowan tree. Didn’t lose any trees? We encourage you to give your tree to a friend, neighbor or family member! Together, we can start the recovery process and repair our ecosystem.

And if that's not enough, be sure to mention to your friends the following additional CRBT benefits:

  • ClickSWITCH, our convenient online switch tool that helps switch auto payments and direct deposits in as little as 10 minutes.
  • Online and mobile banking tools to help stay on top of finances.
  • Zelle, the fast, safe and easy way to send money to friends and family.



* Annual Percentage Yield will range from 0.00% - 3.00% depending on the account type that is opened.  Rate may change after account opening.  Fees could reduce earnings.  APY range is accurate as of February 1, 2021 and is not an introductory rate.  $100 bonus will be paid within 30 days of when the following occur:  the account has been open a minimum of 30 days, a reoccurring ACH  transaction has occurred, the debit card has been used and the account has a positive balance.  Requirements must be met within the first six months.  Only new checking account clients are eligible.  Cannot be combined with any other offers.  Minimum opening deposit requirements range from $25 - $100, with the exception of Premier Plus Checking (minimum $1000 to open).  The current client will receive a $100 credit into their CRBT checking account only after the new client has met these requirements. Referral slip also serves as a one-time waiver of new client’s privacy rights as detailed in the bank’s privacy policy as the referral source will be aware of this account opening. New clients may not combine this with any other promotion.  Gifts are unlimited per client and will be reported to the IRS as applicable. Promotion valid 2/15/21 - 4/15/21.

** New checking account client and referrer will receive their tree between mid to late April. An account executive will contact both clients when the trees are available for pick-up. Trees will not be reserved.  Gift will be reported to the IRS as applicable.
