Direct link to offer

    • Open a Numerica checking account with at least $2,000 balance for 60 days
    • Receive a direct deposit of $100+

The Fine Print

  • Valid only on new checking accounts. Checking offer good March 21-April 30, 2016
  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

There is a $20 fee to become a member that is waived for teens. They offer a free checking account with no monthly fees. According to their fee schedule there is no early account termination fee.

Our Verdict

Not a massive fan of in branch bonuses because they require a bit more effort to complete and usually you can’t fund with a credit card. There is also the $20 membership fee and you’d be losing out on interest on $2,000 for two months as well. That said, given it’s a $200 bonus it’s still a pretty good deal if it’s a soft pull.

Went in today and setup an account. It’s a $100 direct deposit OR withdrawal, as long as it’s ACH, according to the woman who set up my account. The account type they push for is Sequel (as opposed to the Free Checking) which qualifies for 1.35% APY as long as you meet their requirements. I believe the account is free either way, you just miss out on the interest if you don’t meet all 4 requirements. She also told me that it would not be treated as interest and that I would not receive a 1099…though YMMV. I plan on going back in to ensure that this is correct, though.
