- To receive the $100 Checking bonus: 1) Open any new eligible HarborOne Personal Checking Account; 2) Receive direct deposits totaling at least $2,500 to this account within 60 days of account opening. Qualifying direct deposits are recurring electronic deposits of your paycheck, pension or government benefits such as social security from your Employer or the Government. Direct Deposits that do not qualify include: deposits to your account made by an individual using online banking or internet payment provided, Person–to–Person and bank transfers between your existing HarborOne Bank accounts or accounts you have at other financial institutions or brokerages.

(Must also complete checking bonus requirements to be eligible for the additional $100.00)

Once the offer criteria is met, the bonus will be credited into the new personal checking or savings account no later than 80 days from account opening.
- Bonus offers do not apply to those customers who have been paid a promotional premium in the past 24 months.
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
You can open the Free Plus Checking account and still qualify for this bonus, this account has no monthly fee. CheckIt Savings also has no monthly fees to worry about.
Early Account Termination Fee
I wasn’t able to find any early account termination fee in the fee schedule.
Previously they offered a bonus of up to $500, the requirements for the full $500 bonus were much more difficult to meet but still do-able for a lot of people. There was also a comparable offer for $300 that required $5,000 in direct deposits. That was last offered in 2018, so I’m not confident a similar big bonus will come back. Because of that I will add this to our list of the best checking account bonuses.
