The Fine Print

  • Each cash bonus will post to your new account after each condition is met and may take up to 60 days from account opening
  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

They offer a free checking account with no monthly fees or minimums to worry about. There doesn’t look to be any early account termination fee in the fee schedule, but a $10 monthly fee is charged if the account is dormant for 12 months.

Our Verdict

Seems like a great bonus if it’s a soft pull. The singing requirement is a bit weird, but for $25 why not. Even if you’re not into it you can still get $200 of the bonus and those requirements are very easy to meet. Will definitely be added to the best checking bonus page if it’s a soft pull. As always please share your datapoints and comments in the article below.

Big thanks to reader, r9anirudh who let us know. Learn how to find bonuses and contribute to the site here.

I don’t live in one of the required counties, however I was able to submit an application by using my actual address. Funded $500 with CIP.

Will report back if the account gets approved and the CIP charge goes through.

At what point in the app did you put in the promo code 225? I’m almost done with the app and I haven’t seen where to input it yet…

I live in Hartford county and submitted with 500 in CC funding with my Marriott card. Will report back with more info, but the application said account opened and I received an account number. Also Doc, Hartford, Litchfield and Tolland counties are in CT, so the deal is MA and CT.

Looks like they offer 2% cashback checking, any data points on this?

Just spoke with a Florence Bank rep because I forgot to enter the promo code in my application… she said the promo is no longer active. It ended in the fall sometime so YMMV.

Shit, this is dead already. I live locally and missed it. That was fast.

Operator says the promotion ended in november and the signup link was still on their website accidentally.
