Cash Rewards earned on Business Card Accounts that are redeemed through an ACH deposit into a SunTrust business checking, savings or money market account will receive a Cash Deposit Bonus of 10% or 25% on redemption, depending on your deposit relationship with SunTrust as of the last day of the month preceding redemption, or if you redeem in the first few days of the month, the last day of two months prior to redemption (see Program Terms), as follows:

  • Clients with SunTrust Business Advantage Plus Demand Deposit Accounts (DDA) will receive a Cash Deposit Bonus of 25%. On $100 in base Cash Rewards, these clients would earn an additional $25, totaling $125 in Cash Rewards earnings.
  • All other clients with a SunTrust Business checking, savings or money market account will receive a Cash Deposit Bonus of 10%. On $100 in base Cash Rewards, these clients would earn an additional $10, totaling $110 in Cash Rewards earnings.
