We’ve talked about Lafayette FCU because of the $600 credit card bonus they offer. In terms of this bank bonus we need to know whether it’s a hard or soft pull to open before deciding if it’s worth doing. It’s certainly not the biggest or best bonus, but it might be worth doing if it’s a soft pull. If anybody goes for it then please share your experiences in the comments below.
