Very easy bonus. They are strict on the county limitations. $50 anniversary bonus paid out exactly 365 days after opening.

FYI, even though we’re in a pandemic, they told me they require a handwritten letter mailed to their head office to close an account. Angers me so much when banks let you open an account online, but refuse to let you close it. If I were in that office having to open licked-shut envelopes during COVID, I’d be throwing a world class tantrum.

Curious if anyone was able to churn this. I see in the fine print… “Bonuses for new checking account customers and limited to one account per customer.”

If you used to have a checking account in the past but not anymore with them, I wonder if you would be eligible for the bonus or if it is a one time deal.

To clarify for your readers, Easthampton is all one word. Don’t worry, it’s a very common thing to do – I live there 🙂

This must be new because I opened this last year and I’m not in any of those counties.

Has anyone churned this offer? I closed my account (which got me the full bonus) after a year, in June ’17. If not, I volunteer to experiment.
