Direct link to offer

  • Ulster Savings Bank is offering a bonus of $200 when you open a new checking account and complete the following requirements:
    • Direct deposit required, no minimum specified

The Fine Print

  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

This account has no monthly fees to worry about

Early Account Termination Fee

I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule so I’m unsure if there is an early account termination fee.

Our Verdict

Always nice to see a bonus with no monthly fees, it’s a shame the bonus is only available at that one branch. We’ve seen a $125 bonus from Ulster Savings Bank previously but that did require a direct deposit. If you live near a branch I do think this bonus is worth doing, if it’s a soft pull to open. Because you have to open this account in branch it should be possible to find out if it’s a hard or soft pull before opening.

Direct deposit required. “New” checking relationships only. Not sure what “new” means if you’ve had an account in the past. They do offer a free account.
