The offer is available only to U.S. Residents with a U.S. Address in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington D.C., and West Virginia.
These bonuses are better than the offers that expired yesterday and some of the best bonuses out there for checking account.
The highest bonus of $500 requires you to keep $25K which is a large amount. But even if you keep the account open for 6 months and pay the fee, you still come out better than the $250 bonus. Or you can try downgrading or closing the account earlier and pay the closing fee. This account does have an optional Delta SkyMiles World Debit Card with an annual fee of $75. It earns 5,000 bonus miles after first purchase and 1 mile for every $1 spent up to $4K monthly.
The Select Checking account is also a good option since it only requires a $2K balance
