The Fine Print
- Present the $150 promotional offer when opening a new FNB personal checking account (Freestyle, Mystyle, Lifestyle or Premierstyle).
- A $50 minimum deposit is required when opening an account online.
- To receive the $150 reward, the following conditions must be satisfied: 1) Set-up and have a qualifying direct deposit(s) totaling $1,500 or greater made to your new personal checking account within the first 90 days after account opening; and 2) your account must be in good standing once the above conditions are satisfied.
- Once these conditions are satisfied, then your $150 reward will be credited to this open account on the next business day following the 90 days after account opening.
- Your qualifying direct deposit(s) needs to be an electronic-type deposit, similar but not limited to, paycheck, pension or government benefits (such as Social Security) from your employer or other affiliated depositors.
- Offer valid for new personal checking accounts opened May 1 through December 31, 2017. Offer subject to change without prior notice and may be terminated or extended based on response. Offer does not apply to multiple checking accounts.
- Existing FNB checking accounts or accounts converting to another personal checking account are NOT eligible for this offer.
- You can receive only one new checking account reward related offer per household per calendar year; bank employees and members of their household are not eligible for this promotion.
- FNB may offer multiple promotions to its customers at one time.
- Even if you met the requirements for multiple promotional offers you are only eligible for and will receive one promotional reward offer.
- Checking accounts closed by customer within 180 days of opening are subject to a $50 account early closing fee.
- To the extent required by law, First National Bank will report the value of this reward to the IRS on Form 1099 MISC. Any applicable taxes are the responsibility of the account holder.
- In the event that we determine in our sole discretion that your account does not meet the eligibility criteria or the activity on your account does not qualify to required conditions, we will not be obligated to credit your account with the reward payout.
The easiest account to keep fee free is Freestyle checking, there is no monthly fee as long as you have eStatements enabled. There is an early account termination fee of $50 if the account is closed within 180 days.
A lot of people hate First National Bank because they had a previous offer that was available nationwide and then after an influx of new accounts they shut people down if they weren’t in their ‘footprint’. Shouldn’t have an issue if you live in one of the qualifying states, but something to keep in mind. I do think this bonus is worth doing if you live in the area so I will be adding to the best checking sign up bonuses.
