The Fine Print

  • To obtain the $100.00 prepaid VISA gift card (bonus), you must open a new Reserve Checking account with an initial deposit of at least $100.00 on or before April 8, 2016
  • The new account must be opened with money not currently on deposit with Westfield Bank, FSB

  • The bonus will be given at the time the account is opened and the required minimum opening deposit is made.

  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

$100 Early Account Termination Fee

There is an early account termination fee of $100 if the account is closed within 180 days (they take back the bonus)

$4 Monthly Fee

This account comes with a $4 monthly fee that is waived if you have a minimum balance of $1,000 or receive a direct deposit (no minimum specified).

Our Verdict

Always nice to see bonuses with no bonus requirements and pretty easy to keep fee free as well, shame it’s a Visa gift card instead of straight cash but worth doing if it’s a soft pull (even moreso if you can initially fund with a credit card). If anybody has any experience/data points please share them in the comments. We’ll probably add this to the list of the best bonuses if we can confirm it’s a soft pull.

They don’t accept applications over phone and I would be concerned about risking having 1k tied up without any previous record of what triggers the DD.
