$25,000=$100 bonus? I don’t think so. CHEEEEEEEEP.

Exactly !! what were they thinking? Some of these bankers really take us for granted it seems. This type of banks should be given a big thumbs down with no sign ups even if you have 25K to float around easily. Let’s all stay away May be then the message will reach their ears

i have a feeling basically nobody is goign to sign up for this. I guess if you have an extra 25k to park and have maxed out higher % accounts it might make sense for the $100 bonus.

if we can really close it after 5 days getting bonus with no ETF i might just do that. think that will work or the bank will pull some bs? i dont have 25k to float so would only do this to collect bonus quick and close if possible

You risk totally destroying your relationship with them. But if you 0 the balance and close I think it would work.

EDIT: You have to open a minimum 6 month CD. Don’t bother

talked to live CSR – its CD + Savings + Checking – $25k total.
CD you can open it for as low as $5000.00 the e Relationship for $2500.00 to $100,000.00.

so it definitely needs opened for at least 6 months with the CD requirement.

You have to open a 6 month CD to get bonus.

Why do you say a CD is needed for the bonus? They do talk about Time Deposits in general on the same page, but the fine print for the bonus says “Earn $100.00 bonus by opening an eRelationship Savings account and an Advantage Checking account (eAdvantage Combo)” with no mention of a Time Deposit / CD.

Steve Just the way the combo is when you go to sign up. Also look at what Sara Logan said.

$50 early termination fee for accounts (savings or checking) open for less than 6 months. So by my rough calculations a $25K deposit (plus some minimal deposit in the checking account held for at least 6 months would result in a 2.95% maximum APY – assuming the account was closed immediately after the 6th month.

Thinking of this as a 6 month CD that yields around 2.95% with more hassle than a CD would make me walk away, but others might find this interesting. Keeping in mind some of us are getting 2.50% at EBSB today and possibly higher in the next ~3 months.
