The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Open a new checking account with Eagle Federal Credit Union and receive a bonus of up to $100. You’ll receive $25 for every direct deposit or recurring payment you move to your new checkng account using ClickSWITCH.


The Fine Print

  • None listed
  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

Their easiest account to keep fee free is the standard checking account, this has a monthly fee of $5 and is waived if you have direct deposits of $300 or more each month it’s also waived with a monthly average balance of $300 or more. I’m unsure if there is any early account termination fee as I am unable to find the fee schedule.

Our Verdict

Unfortunately this is a hard pull so it’s not really worth considering anymore. Because of that we won’t add it to our best checking promo page.
