The Fine Print
- To qualify for $100 bonus, you must open a Checking Plus Account and be 18 years age or older and a brand new member with no existing account relationships with Arizona Federal, as determined by having a unique Social Security/tax identification number not on record with the credit union.
- Former members may qualify as a new member if previous accounts were closed 12 or more months prior to new open date.
- Bonus will be paid approximately 15 days after completing 10 debit card purchase transactions.
- Debit card purchase transactions must be completed and posted to the new member’s account within 45 days of account opening. Transactions in a pending status do not qualify. All bonuses are considered income and will be reported on IRS Form 1099-MISC. This promotion cannot be combined with any other offers. Limit one new member bonus per person. Business, indirect borrower, fiduciary, non-dues/voting accounts do not qualify. Only Arizona Federal members in good standing qualify for this program. Terms and conditions subject to change without notice. Offer may expire at any time.
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
Account has a $3 monthly fee, this is waived with 10 debit card transactions.
Early Account Termination Fee
I wasn’t able to find the fee schedule so I’m unsure if there is an early account termination fee
Bonus itself looks easy to meet the requirements for, we still need to know if there is any monthly fee and if it’s a soft pull to open. If there is no monthly fee (or it’s easy to keep fee free) and it’s a soft pull then this looks worth doing.
