If the information given by the phone rep is true ($3,000 credit card funding and a soft pull) then this is a great deal. The bonus does have a lot of requirements to complete, but the extra $3,000 credit card funding is what really makes it a good deal. I won’t add it to the best checking bonuses until we have confirmation that information is correct.
