  • To receive the $150 promotional offer, two of the three requirements below must be completed within 90 days of new account opening:
    • Set up a $250 minimum monthly recurring direct deposit into new checking account (must be met in two consecutive calendar months to meet requirement);
    • Complete 20 debit card purchases (multiple swipes for the same purchase amount at the same merchant do not qualify, ATM transactions are not eligible);
    • Complete three electronic payments either through online Bill Pay or ACH using your checking account. Bill payments must be paid to another party with a different mailing address than the primary Bill Pay account holder.

  • Account must be open, active, and in good standing at the time of account credit.
  • New checking customers will receive a 1099-INT or applicable tax form for the value of the promotional account credit received. Annual percentage yield (APY) is based on account type, relationship tier, and deposit amount.

Avoiding Fees

Minimal checking account seems to be the best account to open as there is no monthly account service fee.

Early Account Termination Fee

Account must be kept open for 90 days to avoid any early account termination fee.

Our Verdict

Last bonus was only available in Tulsa-Stillwater area so nice to see one open to all of Oklahoma. It’s also nice that the direct deposit isn’t required and there is no monthly fee for the checking account. This one seems like an easy one to do if you live near a branch, I’ll be adding this to our list of the best checking bonuses.

Heads up! Bank is Chex inquiry sensitive. Applied today and was declined. Opened 7 bank accounts so far this year.

7D INQUIRY ACTIVITY
I2 CHEX INQUIRIES MAY HAVE ADVERSELY IMPACTED THE SCORE

Thank you for posting it. I was in OKC for a week but forgot to stop by the bank and really regretted it. Now I don’t feel so bad – with 14 new accounts this year I would have been declined anyway! 🙂

DP: I got rejected as well because I had too many Chex Inquiries.
