  • The max incentive you can receive during this time is $350.
  • The account must not be overdrawn during the promotional period to receive any of incentives.
  • Subject to 1099 reporting. All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

Select checking account has no monthly fees to worry about

Early Account Termination Fee

Account needs to be kept open for six months

Our Verdict

Previously the bonus was $200. This $350 bonus seems incredible, no direct deposit or monthly fee to worry about. It’s annoying that you don’t get the full bonus for six months, but still hard to complain. This will be added to our best bank account bonus page.

Has anybody tried calling in? We won’t get the $50 online bonus then, but the rest?

I tried today. I am a resident alien living in Pittsburgh. The representative confirmed that I could get the $300 bonus (instead of $350) if I opened the account on the phone and email my passport & driver license to her.
However, she told me the opening deposit should be ONLY done in branch, and due to the current situation ONLY drive-through option was possible. I gave up since I did not want to get out at this time.

A $350 bonus with these easy requirements is a no-brainer. I signed up for the $200 and unfortunately can’t also participate in this one. I have also signed up for a $100 bonus a few years ago as well. IIRC, signing up online wasn’t to hard, but I did need to call their customer service line for additional information (can’t remember what was needed). I will have my wife sign up for this deal!

Tried this back in late 2018 but was disallowed because I wasn’t within 25 miles of a branch. I’m past a year though, so it’s worth another shot. Maybe that requirement has changed.

“Thank you for your interest in opening a new account. Unfortunately, we cannot process your application.” I live 22 miles from the nearest branch. I must have opened too many accounts recently.

Update: Got signed up without issue. Not expecting a reversal this time, as there’s now an S&T branch about 18 miles away.

Looks like my last statement from previous account cut 2/4/19, so hopefully I’m good regarding the 12-month timeframe. No issues signing up for new account. Old login worked and new account appeared right after sign-up.

Does anyone know if those ten S&T Bank Visa Debit card purchases can be made online, not in the physical store location?

Opened the $200 one and received both bonuses for P1 & P2 in 2018. Wonder if the one per household is a new restriction.

No, decided not to open account.
Too many now. Each TAB account requires 15 swipes and they do accept my little donations

Philly area “Unfortunately, we cannot process your application.
For assistance, please contact us at 800.325.2265.”

I’m going to let it wait for a few days, and call if I don’t hear anything. I don’t consider this a denial. I’ve opened a ton of checking accounts lately.

Just called. All they need is for you to send a picture of two forms of ID and they will manually open the account.

After the call they send me a secured message to send in 2 pic ID of driver license and social security card (my 1st ever ) within 8 hours ..

Later on they sent another secured message to asked for signature card. in order to get $100 one need to have 10 $10 debit card purchase. Other banks has no limit. It took me a week to complete .

My $50 bonus may be in limbo because some intervention from
bank’s solution center.

Don’t wait. Just call. All they need you to do is send a picture of two forms of ID and they will finish your account opening.

Update: called and sent in social and DL. Didn’t ask but the rep offered that the account would still show as being opened online. All in all, pretty easy process so far. Was only on hold for 5-10mins
