Bonus & Requirements
Here’s how to qualify for the $150 bonus:
- Complete $500 or more of combined direct deposit per statement cycle made to this account within 60 days

- Offer available in AL, AR, FL, GA, LA, TN, & TX.
- Offers only available to full time employees with fire, police or Paramedic/EMT Services within IBERIABANK’s geographic footprint. Proof of employment may be required.
- Primary signer must be a new checking client to IBERIABANK who opens a new non-interest personal checking account with new money not currently held by IBERIABANK.
- Limit of one cash bonus per household in a 12-month period. Offer is not available to clients whose accounts have been closed within 90 days or closed with a negative balance.
Freedom Checking has a monthly fee:
- $8 for accounts with e-Statements
- $10 for accounts with paper statements
It can be waived with any of the following:
- Maintain a minimum daily balance of $1,000 or more
- Or, combined monthly direct deposits of $500 or more
- Or, you are a student with e-statements*
- Or, you are a small business owner* and have an IBERIABANK small business checking account
If your new checking account is closed within the first six months, the earned bonus will be deducted at account closing.
They’ve had bonuses as high as $300 in the past and even ones that didn’t require a direct deposit. This bonus is for only $150 and only available to first responders. Freedom Checking that you need to open for this account is a bit easier to keep fee-free than the High Interest Checking that you needed for the better bonuses.
