Darien Rowayton Bank has a $100 bonus for opening a MAX Money Market Account and a Free Checking Account. The bonus however is pretty small compared to the balances required. You must make a minimum initial deposit of $5,000 into your MAX Money Market Account and keep a $5000 minimum balance for at least 12 months. You also need to make a $2,500 into your Free Checking Account and keep that minimum balance for at least 12 months as well. So this is an investment of $7500 for a $100 bonus (1.33%).
If you do have a balance of $50K or more in your Max Money Market, you’ll earn their top rate of 0.90% APY. You’ll get a free order of basic checks per year along with $25 rebated ATMs fees from other banks usage fees.
It’s unclear if this will be a hard pull on your credit, so apply at your own risk. I’m staying away from this offer.
