Roadside AssistanceLast night as I was driving home from family Christmas, the entire passenger front wheel sheared off my car's axel and went rolling into a corn field. The next morning I used my Roadside Assistance through Southern Rewards and I got my car towed for FREE! The $80 is covering the whole tow and the person assisting me from Strategy Corps was very friendly, polite, and super helpful. Overall, I am very impressed and the whole call took less than 5 minutes! I could not be happier to be banking with Southern!- Becky O.
Cell Phone ProtectionI broke the screen on my phone at the fair last summer but did not take it in to get it repaired until November. I took it to Genius Phone Repair in Angola, IN. It cost me $369.99 for the repair (they were great, and I do recommend to others). I submitted the claim to BaZing and then waited. I was sure something was going to go wrong and thought they would deny my claim. I just got my reimbursement check in the mail for $319.99! The process was easy. I just had to fill out some paperwork and email it along with copies of the receipts.- Deb L.

Cell Phone Protection
My wife accidentally took her phone for a swim. Towels, hair dryers, and bags of rice were no match for the highly chlorinated Florida pool water. We have cell phone coverage through our carrier, but there was a deductible for $225. I followed the instructions on how to file a claim through the app, downloaded the forms, gathered the required documentation, and submitted my claim. I did have a question so I called the BaZing customer service number and they were extremely helpful. Long story short, I received a check for $175 toward my deductible.
For the customers who think they are covered because they already have cell phone insurance, I would like to point out that they should check their deductible and this account will help offset that cost.

Roadside AssistanceA customer’s car died in the Centreville branch parking lot and when she called AAA they told her they would not be able to help until the next day. She tried calling an non-AAA towing service that was going to charge her $150. She came back inside to let us know what happened and asked if she could leave her car in the parking lot until the next day. This customer had the Perks Checking account so I (Tina Cronkhite) helped her set up her Southern Rewards and called the Roadside Assistance number for her. The customer was able to ask what the cost would be for the tow and decide whether or not she wanted to use that company. BaZing would pay $80 of the towing fee, but she would have to pay anything above that amount. The customer left and was back in less than 15 minutes along with a local towing company in Centreville. The total cost was $100 to take her car to Three Rivers – she only had to pay $20!- Tina Cronkhite, VP/Regional Branch Manager

Cell Phone Protection
I had a customer who realized he was receiving a $6.00 service fee and was not sure why. I explained to him the benefits that come with the accounts and a week later, he came back into the branch, and shared the exciting news that he went to his cell phone provider and cancelled his cell phone insurance. He has a family and multiple phones insured, he was looking for a way to save money. He was able to get a reimbursement and is now saving $52 a month!
