The Fine Print
- Direct deposit must be $500 minimum per month and established within 60 days of the new account being opened
- Account must remain open for a minimum of 6 months. Otherwise, bonus must be returned to Credit Union
- Limited time offer, cannot be combined with any other offer and is subject to change at any time
- Limit 1 (one) bonus per new checking account per household opened through 4/30/16
- $100 Bonus will be deposited into checking account within 8 weeks after promotional period ends
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
There is no monthly fee on this account, you do need to keep the account open for six months to avoid any early account termination fee.
Unfortunately this bonus requires a hard pull, because of that I can’t recommend it as you’d be better signing up for a credit card with a cash bonus instead. I’d recommend signing up for one of these checking promos instead.
