- New money only; funds must not have been on deposit at MB for the past 90 calendar days. Account must be in good standing (open, with a positive balance) to receive payout.
- One new checking related bonus per customer per 12 month period

Monthly Service Fee $15
This account has a monthly service fee of $15, this is waived if you do any of the following:
- You have 4 or more signature-based debit card transactions per statement cycle, or
- You maintain at least a $5,000 average balance each statement cycle, or
- Your account is linked to other qualified MB accounts that have a combined average balance of $15,000 or greater
Early Account Termination Fee
Account must be kept open for six months otherwise you’ll forfeit the bonus.
They also have a $250 personal checking account bonus. This $350 bonus seems pretty good as long as you can meet the $5,000 requirement as completing 15 debit card transactions shouldn’t be too difficult. After the bonus posts you could just keep the $5,000 in the account until six months is over or switch to doing four debit card transactions monthly.
