  • Work for one of the Select Employer Groups or
  • Have an immediate family member that is already a member
  • Be a nationwide PTA member

Our Verdict

Previously they offered a bonus of $150 with the same requirements. Neither bonus is worth considering due to the hard pull that is done. There are a lot of better checking account bonuses out there, so I’d recommend sticking with one of those instead.

Big thanks to reader, Alex who let us know. Learn how to find bonuses and contribute to the site here.
