The Fine Print
- To be eligible for the promotion: A Silver Savings account, with new money not currently held by Hancock Bank or Whitney Bank, must be opened with an opening deposit of $2,500 or more.
The gift card amount will be based on the balance of the Silver Savings account as of 10/25/18. One gift card per balance tier based on highest balance amount.
- Gift card will be sent to the address associated with your new account within four to six weeks after the qualification expiration date of 10/25/18. Limit one gift card per household. Limit of one new consumer-savings-account-related bonus per calendar year.
The offer is non-transferable and valid only for person residing at the address the mail was sent to. This cannot be combined with other offers.
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
Savings account has a $3 monthly fee that is waived with an average daily balance of $200.
Early Account Termination Fee $20
This account has an early account termination fee of $20 if the account is closed within 180 days of account opening.
This is much better than the standard savings bonus they offer when they are also offering a $300 checking bonus. Doesn’t look like you need to keep the minimum balance for any period of time, just need it in the account as of 3/31/2018. If you live near a branch I think this is worth doing and will add it to our list of the best savings account bonuses.
