- To receive cash bonus, you must set up a recurring direct deposit of $300 or more that posts to your new account at least monthly AND your first direct deposit must post within 60 days of opening.
- If qualifications are met, cash bonus will be credited to your account 90 days after opening.
- Account must be open and in good standing to receive cash bonus.
- All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them
There are no monthly fees or minimums on this account, according to this comment there is also no early account termination fee. Keep in mind you need to receive a monthly direct deposit or use online bill pay to make one bill payment per month otherwise your account can be downgraded.
Pretty good bonus, we just need some data points on what counts as a direct deposit. If you can easily change your employer payroll I’d recommend this bonus. If you have any experience, share it in the comments. As always, in the mean time check out our recommended bank bonuses. I doubt it’s worth waiting $250 bonus to come back because recent bigger bonuses have all contained the available to current LegacyTexas clients only language.
