The Fine Print
- In order to qualify for the $100 cash bonus, you must (1) open a new personal Checking account, by July 31, 2018, AND (2) set up one recurring qualified direct deposit in which two direct deposits of $250 or greater are received within 60 days of account opening.
- A “qualified direct deposit” is a direct deposit of a paycheck, pension, Social Security or other eligible regular monthly income, electronically deposited by an employer or an outside agency into your new checking account.
- Cash bonus is only available to new customers that do not currently have a personal checking account with us and have not received a cash bonus from us in the prior 12 months.
- Bonus may not be combined with any other offer and may be withdrawn without notice.
- $100 Cash Bonus Payment: $100 cash bonus will be credited to your new checking account within 30 days after all terms of offer are met.
- Your checking account must be in good standing at time of payment to receive cash bonus award. Cash bonus value will be reported to IRS as taxable income.
The free checking account has no monthly fee to worry about. According to the fee schedule you’ll be charged an early account termination fee of $25 if the account is closed within 180 days of opening.
Offer is significantly better than it was before as you can open online and there is no monthly fee to worry about. Still by no means the best checking sign up bonus, but better than it previously was especially with the credit card funding. As always share your data points in the comments below.
