- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
Their checking account has no monthly fees to worry about. According to the fee schedule there is no early account termination fee.
They also offer a $150 referral bonus for both parties, that’s the better offer if the person referring you will give you their $150 as well but that is somewhat unlikely so this will be better for most people. Good deal especially if it can be opened online, I guess it can be due to the promotional code but not 100% sure on that and the fact you get a $50 extra bonus if you open in branch, this DP says they were told in branch only. For now I won’t add it to our best checking bonus page until we know a bit more.
