Green$ense from Citizens Bank

Citizens Bank now offers the Green$ense program, which earns account owners 10 cents per transaction without paper, to a maximum of $120 per year. Paperless transactions include using your debit card, online bill payment, and automatic payments (like your gym membership). Citizens deposits your green rewards monthly and sends an email notification that includes green living tips.

The debit card that accompanies the account is made of recycled plastic. According to the Citizen’s Bank web site, any personal checking account can be enrolled in the Green$ense program. It would be best if they didn’t send a new plastic debit card but continued to use the customer’s current card, whenever a customer is not new to Citizen’s Bank.

The also site will calculate the number of trees and pounds of paper that you save by switching to electronic billing and payment. If you’re already a Citizen’s customer, this is a great way to get paid to modernize your life and reduce your impact. If you’re not a Citizen’s customer and you don’t use electronic billing, this might be the enticement you need to start. It definitely makes economic sense while it earns a little money for you.
