[Expired] Discover AAA $100 Savings Bonus With $15,000 Deposit
Update: Expired as of June 30th as expected.
Note: This is the same bonus as Discover offers directly. According to the fine print there is nothing excluding you from getting this bonus before unless you’ve previously been an AAA savings customer. In the offer at a glance section we have linked to Discover savings data points as I believe they will be the same. It also doesn’t look like AAA membership is actually a requirement (update: there is a field for your AAA membership information during the application. You can proceed if you leave them blank and AAA membership isn’t listed as a requirement for the bonus).

- Bonus is considered interest and will be reported on IRS Form 1099-INT.
- Offer may be modified/withdrawn without notice.
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
There are no fees to with this account.
AAA Discover does not have any minimum balance requirement, and you can withdraw all the funds after opening the account and fulfilling the $15,000 deposit requirement.
Early Termination Fee
There’s no mention of a fee for closing the account at any time. Note that you need to leave the account open until 7/28/17 or whenever the bonus posts.
This is good for people that have already done the Discover savings $100 bonus. The best part of this bonus is that there is no minimum deposit requirement length so you can just deposit $15,000 and then immediately withdraw it. In the past bonus has posted around 5-15 days after the $15,000 requirement has been met. The 1.1% APY rate is also competitive, but it isn’t the best rate currently available. We will be adding this to our list of the best savings account sign up bonuses.
