Avoiding Fees

All of their checking products qualify for this promotion. We’d recommend opening the basic account as there is no monthly fee and no minimum monthly balance requirement. There is an account closure fee of $5 if the account is closed within 90 days of opening, but you’ll need to keep the account open for longer than that anyway to get the bonus.

Our Verdict

Update: Now that it is a hard pull I wouldn’t recommend this bonus as you’d be able to get a much higher credit card sign up bonus.

Pretty good bonus as you can get a lot of it without a direct deposit, there are no monthly fees to worry about and you can fund with a credit card. Because of that we’ve added it to our best checking bonus page.

Big thanks to reader, Doug who let us know. Please consider sharing bank bonuses with this site so we can make it even better.

Thanks! Chat agent said there would be a soft pull and credit-card funding is unlimited, but I applied, and it limited me to $1000 total for accounts on CC. Visa, MC, Amex, and Discover accepted. It is pending as a purchase for me with Chase. No hard pull notice sent to me, and I was instantly approved.

Note that Philadelphia is included in the counties here. Finally something on the east side of PA.

There’s a public offer for “21,300 CURewards points worth $150 in gift cards” when signing up for a checking account, plus a 7mo CD paying 7%apy on up to $2,500. Limited to one CD per person

I received a paper mailer, but these offers are clearly public and available at http:/

Tried funding with Amex SPG Biz which was rejected. Successfully funded with Citi Doublecash though I got a fraud alert and had to retry later in the day


I tried Amex Everyday Card and says ” Credit Card authorization failed, please enter valid Credit Card information”. Chat with agent says that they charged Amex as cash advance.

Note that the new offer doesn’t appear to require any DD, just 10x debits by July 31st
