Update 9/4/19: Bonus is actually $100. I believe $75 is the standard opening bonus that everybody is eligible and then you get an additional $100 through this bonus. Hat tip to reader Natalie K

- Republic Bank is offering a bonus of $100 when you open a new checking account. To be eligible you either need to bring in a TD bank debit card or your dog (lol?). To be eligible for the bonus you need to meet the following requirements:
- Have a minimum opening deposit of $250
The Fine Print
- Bonus will be directly deposited into your account within 30 days of account opening
- Limit 1 per customer
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
They offer a free checking account with no monthly fees
Early Account Termination Fee
I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule, so I’m unsure if there is any early account termination fee or not.
Requirements for opening are weird, but there are no requirements for the bonus so that’s a nice plus. Because it’s a soft pull we will be adding this to our list of the best bank account bonuses.
