MIDVALE, Utah, Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- This back-to-school shopping season, Ally Bank Interest Checking Account customers will have opportunities to save money by simply paying with their Ally Bank Checking Debit Card at qualifying retailers. The Ally Perks® debit reward program automatically gives money back to customers when they make a purchase at participating retailers.

"Families spend a lot of money when buying supplies and clothing for back-to-school. Ally Perks allows them to earn money back automatically, by shopping at stores that are most-visited by our cardholders," said Diane Morais, deposits and line of business integration executive for Ally Bank.
