Frequently Asked Questions

  • A Pop-Up blocker is preventing me from registering or enrolling in Go Points?

    We have noticed that a few members with pop-up blockers or ad-blockers sometimes have issues registering the first time they try to join Go Points, and therefore may need to disable pop-up blockers in their browser in order to register. After registration, pop-up blockers may be re-enabled without any issues.
  • What is Ampre?

    Ampre is merchant funded rewards and you will find it inside the "Go Points" website. You can spend at highlighted merchants (like Home Depot) and get awesome points (could be $1=1 point, or more!). These transactions will post as "pending" within 5 days of the transaction, but the actual points won't post on your account until the merchant funds the transaction, which could be up to 45 days.
  • What is the value of a point?

    When you are earning points, the value of a point is $0.01 per point.
  • Do points expire?

    Yes. Points do expire. Great news is, the Go Points website within Online Banking will always keep you updated on what points expire when! Points will expire 3 years after they are earned.
  • Can I redeem points for cash back?

    Yes! With Go Points, cash back is available for redemptions as low as $25 (3,000 points).
  • Can I buy points?

    No, you can't buy points. There is only one example of using points + cash on an item. Ex.: You want to purchase an airline ticket but don't have enough points to cover the point total. You can use all of your points and then pay the remainder with cash. 
  • In what order are my points spent when I redeem?

    Points are deducted from your account for redemptions using first in, first out. Your oldest points which expire sooner, will be redeemed first.

  • What's the point gifting minimum?

    You can gift a minimum of 100 points.
  • Can I gift points?

    Absolutely! See above. They will have a 60-day expiration date.
  • Can I link my accounts with another person?

    Yes! With GTE Go Points, members will be able to link their points with another member earning points by completing an easy online form. This will allow for seamless sharing of points! Members will also be able to do a 1x gifting of points to another person. So, members will be able to link and share all their points with another, or gift points when desired. To link to another member you must share the same last name, zip code and city. If you would like to link but don't meet these requirements, you can share your points through the gifting portal.
  • Do I have to link my Debit and Credit Card points together?

    The answer is no. All your points will be automatically pooled together into one big bucket! So, whether you earn points with your Debit Card, Credit Card or with a home loan, they will all be instantly combined. The member will not have to take any additional steps and fill out a form to link points. 
  • Is there a cost?

    Great question! And, the big answer is...not at all. GTE Go Points is free to members. It's our way of saying thank you for using GTE as your primary financial institution. As a not-for-profit credit union, the more members who use our products and services, the more value we can return to the cooperative! It's what makes being a credit union so different than a big bank. 
  • What can I get points for?

    The primary reason for Go Points is to provide members more ways to earn and spend rewards points and more ways use their credit union's products and services. With GTE Go Points, we will have expanded the ways members can earn to include things like loans, enrolling in account features and more! Check out the Go Points home page for more info.
  • How does it work?

    You get points for making everyday purchases, opening GTE products, referring friends, and tons of other ways! Once you have points, you can redeem and spend in the new rewards program.
  • How do I register?

    You can access the Go Points through Online Banking. Depending on the accounts you have with GTE, some members will be auto-enrolled into the program. Member's who are not auto enrolled can simply opt-in to the program. Once you are enrolled in the program, you will just need to confirm your email address on the Go Points website to complete your registration. You can find more information on how to get started with Go Points here.
  • Who is eligible?

    One of the best things about GTE Go Points is that all members will be eligible to participate (you must be 16 years or older and be in good standing). Now, all 250,000+ of our members are able to earn points for GTE activities as well as products and services.
