There are smaller bonuses of $90 and $100 for those that live in WA, OR or HI (there is actually a $200 in branch offer for those in HI). I’ll probably go for this offer when I have the time, I can easily change my payroll so worrying about direct deposits isn’t a big issue for me. Fingers crossed that they allow credit card funding. If you have any experiences with this bonus, please share them in the comments below.
