  • This is a one-time offer, is non-transferrable and is not valid with any other promotion.
  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

They offer a free checking account with no monthly fee to worry about. I wasn’t able to find an up to date fee schedule, this old one made no mention of an early account termination fee but YMMV.

Our Verdict

Seems like a bonus worth doing if it turns out to be a soft pull, especially if the credit card funding is decent. As always if anybody goes for this bonus then please share your data points in the comments below.
