- Open with a minimum opening deposit of $20,000 or more.
- Maintain your $20,000 balance through 03/31/18.

You can waive the $10 monthly service charge on your Access Checking account by meeting one of the following requirements:
- Maintain a $250 minimum daily balance
- You receive a direct deposit of $250 or more to your account
- You are under the age of 24
- You are age 64 and over
A $20 service charge will be assessed if the account is closed within the first 180 days after the account is opened.
This is a pretty easy bonus to get with very few requirements, and the best bonus we have seen I believe for the checking account. You have to be in one of the eligible states to apply and you need to go into a branch to open the account. The savings bonus is not worth it. You need to keep $20K in the account for three months to receive $100.
