Our Verdict

Annoying that a branch visit seems necessary to complete your application. $250 is one of the larger bonuses available, I’d say it’s worth doing if you live near a branch. This will be added to our list of the best checking bonuses available. As always please share your own datapoints in the comments below.

FYI- they are ChexSystems sensitive.


These guys are declining to pay the bonus because I am out of state. They are saying I don’t qualify. This was after my debit card would not work.. again, according to them, because I am out of state. This is after I met all the requirements.

Filing my complaint as I type…. SMH


This is a bait and switch scam. After going into branch we were talked into switching to the cash back account not realizing we were scammed out of the 250!
