Wing Financial Credit Union is offering a $50 checking bonus with some easy requirements. The bonus comes in the form of a $50 Visa Reward Card. The offer isn’t much and to make it worse, you also have to pay a $5 donation to join. That, at least, is going to a good cause, the Wings Financial Foundation, a non-profit organization that promotes financial literacy for people of all ages.
You will receive your Reward Card 4-6 weeks after completing all requirements of this offer.
Here’s how to get the bonus
- Register here first for the bonus
- Create account
- Set up eStatements AND
- Make direct deposit of $300 or more OR 5 Point of Sale debit card transactions
What might make this deal worth looking at, is that they also have a referral program that pays $50 per referral up to $500. In order to send referrals you need to
- Go here and fill out referrer form
- Get social media link (or enter their emails)
- Send it to friends and family (or post it in the comments below)
Definitely not worth it for just $50. The referrals might make this deal more enticing if you’ll be signing up with a few friends or family members. I believe they don’t have have to do the $5 donation either since they’re related to a Wing Financial Credit Union member (you). But I’m not sure if there’s a hard/soft pull. On the plus side you can fund with up to $500 with a credit card, but make sure to set Cash Advance limit to $0 since there’s no data points on how it codes.
This offer is not available if you already have a Wings First Class Checking Account. Your account must be active and in good standing 60 days after account opening in order to receive the reward. This incentive is only offered to those who have never had a membership at Wings Financial Credit Union or those who have not had a Primary Share Savings Account for over a year.
