  • An OU Credit Union Debit Card must be activated by 9/30/18 and 10 debit card purchases made within 30 days of account opening to qualify.
  • The $100 will be deposited into your OU Credit Union checking account within 14 days of the 10th purchase.
  • May not be combined with any other offers.
  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

The totally gold checking account has no monthly fees to worry about.

Early Account Termination Fee

I was unable to find the fee schedule so I’m unsure if any early account termination fee is charged.

Our Verdict

I doubt many readers will be eligible, but maybe you know somebody who is and this is a good opportunity to introduce them to the site. If it’s a soft pull then it’s worth doing as the requirements are easy to meet and no direct deposit requirement either.
