They offer a better than free checking account with no monthly minimums or fees. You do need to keep the account open for 90 days, otherwise the bonus will be forfeit. Unfortunately the better than free checking account has to be opened in branch, if you open online your best bet is the basic checking account this has a $6 fee that is waived with a balance of $750+.
This is a nice bonus, it’s relatively low but you don’t need a direct deposit to trigger it and you can also fund $2,500 with a credit card. If I lived within the service area I’d be signing up for this one, because of that I’ve added it to our list of the best bank bonuses. They offered a similar $100 bonus previously.
