BB&T Bank also has great referral bonuses. If you have an account, you should be able to refer friends and family and you will receive a $100 referral bonus. The referree will still receive this same bonus when they sign up and fulfill all the requirements.
If you have an account, you can post your information in the comments below to earn a referral bonus. In return please share the post on Facebook or Twitter and provide a link to the post on the “website” field when you comment. I’m not very strict about this rule, but please give something in return for posting your referrals.
Good bonuses, but to receive the $400 offer you need to keep $25K in the account for 3-4 months to waive the $30 fee until you get the bonus and then pay the $25 early closing fee.
