Five Star Bank has an offer for new checking accounts that can get you a bonus of $150. The offer is available in NY and in branch only until 12/31/2018.
To receive the $150.00 checking account bonus, you must:
- Open a Premier Checking account (NOW account), Plus Checking, Traditional Checking or E-checking account online by 12/31/2018.
- Establish a direct deposit into your account within 60 days from the last day of the month the account was opened.
The bonus will be deposited within 90 days from the last day of the month the account was opened. The bonus may be subject to income tax and IRS reporting.
- Offers not available to existing Five Star Bank consumer checking or NOW account holders, or those who have closed a Five Star Bank consumer checking account within 12 months or have had an account closed with a negative balance.
- Business and municipal customers are not eligible.
- Bonus is limited to one account per customer regardless of the titling on the account.
- Offer is available in NY only (branch locator).
E-Checking is free when you receive your monthly statement electronically.
If the account is closed within 179 days after opening, the bonus will be forfeited; the bonus will be debited from the account at account closing and the account will be subject to the Bank’s $35.00 early account closeout fee.
The previous bonus for the E-Checking account was $100, so this is a little better. You need to set up a direct deposit into your account within 60 days to get this $150 bonus. The account has no fees.
