Update 4/5/19: Slickdeals now has a new rebate offer, this time increased to $125 (up from $100 last time).
Update 3/16/19: APY has been increased to 2.25%. Still not the best high yield account but useful for some with the $100 additional bonus.

This account has no monthly fees to worry about. There is an early account termination fee of $25 if the account is closed within 180 days.
2.25% APY isn’t the highest yield savings account currently being offered. That being said this account might be of interest to some readers because HSBC is also offering a checking bonus of up to $700. To get the highest bonus you need to deposit up to $100,000 and even though this account is HSBC direct rather than HSBC apparently funds in this account do qualify for the bonus (and also help to keep it fee free). That makes that offer significantly more attractive.
You should be able to do this deal and the checking bonus deal, I’d recommend opening the checking bonus first just in case you can only do one of these, as those bonuses are bigger.
