The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Open a new Student’s 1st checking and statement savings account at your local 1st constitution branch and receive a $250 sign up bonus. You must provide proof of student enrollment at the time of sign up.

The Fine Print

  • To receive $250 bonus, both savings & checking account must be maintained
  • $250 bonus will post within 60 days of account opening
  • eStatements are not optional
  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

The checking account needs a balance of $200 to avoid a $5 monthly fee being charged (if you’re over 24 then a daily minimum balance of at least $100 is required or a $15 monthly fee is charged). You will also be charged $25 for each account that is closed within 6 months.

Our Verdict

This is a great bonus if it’s a soft pull, the only requirement for the bonus is being a student and it’s incredibly easy to keep fee free. If anybody goes for this bonus, please let us know if it was a soft pull in the comments. We will add it to our best bank bonus page (even with the small footprint, because of how good of a deal this is) if it turns out to be a soft pull.

I’m a bit confused. In title you write $250 bonus and in the details you write $200. Is it a typo or am I having a really lazy and slow morning.

Thanks Doc for all your posts. I love your site. I shop @ Amazon thru your links to show you my appreciation. Thanks
