3Interest rate reduction of up to 0.50 percentage points is possible with the following discounts:
Loyalty Discount: The borrower will be eligible for a 0.25 percentage point interest rate reduction on a new Citizens Bank Student Loan if the borrower or co-signer (if applicable) has a qualifying account in existence with Citizens Bank at the time the borrower and co-signer (if applicable) have submitted a completed application authorizing Citizens Bank to review the credit request for a Citizens Bank Student Loan. The following are qualifying accounts: any checking account, savings account, money market account, certificate of deposit, automobile loan, home equity loan, home equity line of credit, mortgage, credit card account, or any private student loan owned by Citizens Bank, N.A. Please note, not all products are available in all states, and some products may have an associated cost. This discount will be reflected in the interest rate disclosed in the Approval Disclosure that will be provided once the loan is approved. There is a limit of one loyalty discount per loan, and the discount will not be applied to prior loans. The loyalty discount will remain in effect for the life of the loan.
Automatic Payment Benefit: During periods when payments are due, you will be eligible to receive a 0.25 percentage point interest rate reduction on your loan by authorizing Citizens Bank’s loan servicer to automatically deduct your payments each month from any bank account you designate. Benefit is not available when payments are not due, such as during deferment or forbearance or during periods where you have cancelled automatic deductions. If Citizens Bank's loan servicer is unable to successfully withdraw the automatic deductions from the designated account two or more times within any 12-month period, you will no longer be eligible for this benefit.
