Max this out with a $50,000 deposit to get the full $500 bonus. The savings account earns 2.15% which isn’t bad, though there are better. We saw Ally do a similar thing last year, and there was another one similar recently as well, from memory. It’s especially nice that they offer this for existing customers too.
Marcus recently reduced the saving APY rate from 2.25% to 2.15%. Still, with the added 1% boost, you’ll land up with a nice ~6% rate for those 90 days. Personally, I just look at it like a ~$450 bonus for someone who anyway has funds sitting in a 2.50% savings account.
