I think this may be a different bank then the one for the states listed. The Union Bank and Trust in VA was rebranded as Atlantic Union Bank.


Yeah, this is definitely a different bank. Their branches are in the Midwest.

This is for Union Bank and Trust in NE


Not available in Maryland…


Not available in NC


The branches are in Lincoln, NE


William Charles It seems like this bank has been mis-identified and the states listed are not eligible for the bank offering the bonus. You may want to delete the three states and just list Nebraska pending additional research or data points. (Pls delete the link from my signature; it was auto-inserted and I didn’t see it before adding my comment. Sorry)
