Guru’s Wrap-Up

BMO Harris is offering two bonuses, one for $300 and the other for $500. There’s no direct deposit requirement, but you need to have an average balance of $4,000 or $10,000 for 120 days. You also need to complete 10 electronic transactions such as ACH transfers, debit purchases, bill payments and more.

Some data points in the past show that this might not be the easiest bank to deal with. The bonus takes 135 days to post and you might need to request it yourself. But there’s no direct deposit requirement, which makes it easier for most people who are in eligible states.

Bank bonuses are a great way to earn some extra income, often from the comfort of your home. You can take a look at my bank bonus results for 2022 where I made over $6,000.
