I’m not seeing where this a fee free account. Both of their checking account options mention a monthly fee unless requirements are met.

Looks like we would need to do the “universal checking” account in order to be eliglble for the bonus. The checking account would require an average daily balance of $1000 to avoid fees. The money market account would require an average daily balance of $10,000 to avoid fees. Perhaps for the money market bonus it would be wise to eat the $30 early termination fee to avoid keeping $10k tied up for 180 days in an account that only pays 0.05% APY.

Is this “universal checking” account bonus available only for BRAVO program or everyone who applies this account?

Since I live in the north of Chicago and I’m super closed to Wisconsin, could I open these state specific bank accounts in WI?
Or
While traveling, could I open bank accounts where I travel in the states? Like Taxes or Cali?

I couldn’t find an option on the page to apply. I did find a way to apply in the personal checking account menu option on their home page, however, it doesn’t make any mention of the bonus.

I looked into this once before. I understood the Bravo program was not open everyone, but only to employees of employers participating in the Bravo program. Can anyone confirm?

I thought the same thing. I just called and Bravo is based upon your employer.So this would need to be a different program for the average person to do it.

William Charles Yeah I don’t think this ought to be on the best bank account bonus page if your employer has to participate in the Bravo program.

This one is different and seems easier. $200 bonus for $300 DD, $25 e-statement, $25 for 5 dc purchases in 1 statement cycle; Universal Checking, $1k daily balance until you can close account (6 mo)

Yeah there is a monthly fee. The bonus is only available for essential checking. and the essential checking has this:
“With 5 CheckCard purchases or more that have posted and settled to the checking account each statement cycle^ (ATM transactions do not qualify) or direct deposits of payroll or government benefits totaling $300.00 or more each statement cycle^; otherwise a monthly usage fee of $10.00 will be imposed.”
