I don’t live in Arizona, but even if I did I wouldn’t be completing this deal. A hard pull with Equifax makes this a dead-killer, you’d be better off signing up for a credit card with a cash bonus. Aside from that the number of signature debit card transactions is also prohibitive (10 for the bonus and another 10 per month for six months to keep it fee free) and we aren’t sure if anything other than a real employer payroll or government benefit will trigger this bonus.
If you do decide to go for this bonus, I’d recommend reading our listing of better deals first. We’ve added this to the list of state specific checking bonuses. Also let us know if you were able to fund with a credit card and how much you were able to and what counted as a direct deposit.
