Blue Hill Bank offers a free checking account, the only requirement is that you must open it with at least $10. Their fee schedule says that there is an early account termination fee of $25 if the account is closed within 90 days.
This is the best deal they have ever offered by far, previous deals were for $300 in Uber credit or $200 in cash. Really nice that there is no monthly fee to worry about and the requirements are fairly easy to meet. This is easily one of the best checking bonuses currently available. Shame it’s only available in branch at Seaport and it’s not $350 like last year.
