There is a smaller referral bonus for $120 for new members ($100 for the referrer) and that has no bonus requirements. That might be a better deal for some people that don’t want to deal with a direct deposit or have a friend that will refer them and give them at least $80 of the referrer bonus. Others will prefer this bonus because it’s bigger and there is no need to worry about setting up the referral. We will list both in the best bank bonus page.
