- CIBC is offering a $400 checking bonus when you open a new iCan or MyChoice account in branch when you meet the following requirements:
- Receive at least one direct deposit or ACH automated debit transaction
- Elect to receive electronic statements
The Fine Print
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
Looks like all the checking accounts are now fee free.
Early Account Termination Fee
There is a $25 early account termination fee if the account is closed within 90 days.
Normally the bonus is only $200, this $400 bonus might be just be for this branch but it’s also possible it’s available at all branches. If anybody tries any other branches, let us know in the comments. I’ll add this $400 bonus to the best checking bonus page.
