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 $2500 or more.
  • The gift card amount will be based on the balance of the Silvers Savings account as of 03/31/17.

  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

This account has a $3 monthly service charge, this is waived if any of the following occurs:

  • Maintaining a $200 minimum daily balance or if you are under the age of 18 or age 65 and over.
  • Link a Connect or Priority Checking Account.

Our Verdict

It’s usually possible to get a similar $100 savings bonus with a $300 checking bonus from Hancock Whitney although that does require a much higher deposit of $20,000. According to the fine print it looks like the deposit doesn’t have to be there for the whole duration, but only needs to be there on March 31st, 2016 – but that seems odd to me.

That’s a pretty good bonus if that’s the case, but you still need to go in branch for a $100 bonus so we won’t add it to our best offer page.

Big thanks to reader, Chalkitup who let us know. Please consider sharing bank bonuses with this site so we can make it even better.

Repetitive offer I think.
They seems to be repeating same offer every 3 months – ending at the end of the quarter.
I have completed and received $100 bonus for March 31 Requirement date of balance. I managed to scramble 10k for a few days. Day before and day after the March 31 – required date in my case.

Got the promo code online by providing e-mail and took it to the branch

My mom from out of town did the same when she visited. She lives in the same state, but they have no banks near her residence. She got her 300 bonus for checking.
waiting on her June 30 required date of balance for the bonus of 100 for saving.

Now I see the same offer for 09/30/17
