To receive the $250 reward, the following conditions must be satisfied: 1) set-up and have a qualifying direct deposit(s) totaling $2,500 or greater made to your new personal checking account within the first 90 days after account opening online; and 2) your account must be in good standing once the above conditions are satisfied.
- Then your $250 reward will be credited to this open account on the next business day following the 90 days after account opening.
- Your qualifying direct deposit(s) needs to be an electronic-type deposit, similar but not limited to, paycheck, pension or government benefits (such as Social Security) from your employer or other affiliated depositors.
- Offer valid for new personal checking accounts opened April 17, 2017 through June 17, 2017.
- Offer subject to change without prior notice and may be terminated or extended based on response.
- Offer does not apply to multiple checking accounts.
- Existing FNB checking accounts or accounts converting to another personal checking account are NOT eligible for this offer.
- You can receive only one new checking account reward related offer per household per calendar year
- Bank employees and members of their household are not eligible for this promotion.
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
The easiest account to keep fee free is Freestyle checking, there is no monthly fee as long as you have eStatements enabled. There is an early account termination fee of $50 if the account is closed within 180 days.
If you’re targeted then this is obviously a great deal. The real questions are:
- Is the promo code unique? If not, can anybody open online and receive the bonus or do they have a list of addresses they sent the offer to?
- Can anybody just go in branch and open the account and get the account without the flyer?
If anybody received this offer can you please send a copy of the offer to firstname.lastname@example.org? Thanks in advance. You can view all the bonuses we currently recommend by clicking here.
