Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

The M checking account required for this bonus has a $6 monthly fee, this is waived with a  $250 or more monthly recurring direct deposit or $1,000 minimum average daily balance

Early Account Termination Fee

Account must be kept open for 90 days to avoid any early account termination fee.

Our Verdict

Previously bonuses of $150/$200 have been offered with similar requirements. Because of that I wouldn’t recommend doing this bonus and we won’t be adding this to our list of the best checking bonuses available.

“Complete 10 debit card purchases. Multiple swipes for the same purchase amount at the same merchant do not qualify…” That’s interesting.
