Monthly Qualification Cycle and Monthly Statement Cycle Explanation “Monthly Qualification Cycle” means a period beginning one banking day prior to the first day of the current statement cycle through one banking day prior to the close of the current statement cycle. Your account will be automatically qualified on that one day prior to the first day of the current statement cycle. What this means for you is if you did not qualify for the higher preferred rate, you might notice a slightly higher than the base rate APY earned on your statement due to the one day (the last day) being calculated with the higher preferred rate. The qualification cycle is the 21st of the month through the 20th of the next month. The qualification cycle may end earlier if the 20th falls on a weekend or holiday.
