    • Log on to Online Banking, Mobile Banking, or a Mobile App at least once a month.
    • Receive eStatements in lieu of paper statements.
    • Provide and maintain a valid email address.
    • Have at least one monthly direct deposit into the account or one monthly automatic payment from the account. (Transfers between LGE accounts and Bill Pay transactions do not satisfy this requirement.)
    • Perform any combination of 20 or more LGE debit card and/or LGE credit card transactions that post during the month with an aggregate total of $250.00 or more (excluding ATM transactions and credit card cash advances).
  • You can also get a $50 sign up bonus on Youth accounts (up to age 22), they’ll match 100% of you initial deposit up to that maximum of $50. This account earns a 5% APY on balances up to $500.

 

The Fine Print

  • After the account has been open for 10 days and has received the initial deposit, $150 will be deposited into your HRC account within 10 business day
  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

The high rate checking account does not come with any monthly fees. There is also no early account termination fee mentioned in their fee schedule.

Our Verdict

Pretty good sign up bonus if you live near a branch. No real requirements to get the bonus or avoid the monthly fees is what makes it a good deal. If you have any experiences with this bonus, please share them in the comments below. You can view the bank bonuses we recommend here. We will be adding this to the highly location specific section.

I called the branch and they said it will be a hard pull.

I went to the branch on Saturday and signed up. The lady I talked to said it would be a soft pull as long as you don’t signup for the overdraft. I deposited $100 cash and waiting now. You do have to setup a savings account as well.

Just went in branch for $150 bonus. They required a hard pull from Equifax, so had to unfreeze it. I asked if there was a way to not do a hard pull (ie. not open an account with overdraft protection), but I was told it was a requirement for new members… Thanks as always for the banking bonuses heads up!
