Update: There’s a better bonus of $200 for the same account.
Citizens Bank is offering a $150 bonus for new checking accounts. The offer has been extended till the end of June. We have seen higher offers in the past, but this seems to be the new norm. The account ca be opened online and requirements are pretty easy to complete.
Get paid $150 when you:
- Open your first new personal checking account between 3/30/2018 and 6/30/2018
- Make a single direct deposit of $500 or more within 60 days of opening your first new One Deposit Checking from Citizens Bank.
If you meet all of the above requirements and open a One Deposit Checking account you will receive a $150 bonus. Bonus will post to the checking account within 90 days after direct deposit has posted and will be labeled as “Balance Builder Bonus.” Bonus will be reported to the IRS for income tax purposes.
Offer available in CT, DE, MA, MI, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI & VT.
Primary signer on the new checking account may not be or have been a primary or secondary signer on any personal checking account within the previous six months.
One Deposit Checking account has a monthly maintenance fee of $9.99 that is waived with one deposit each statement period.
No early closing fees.
This is a good bonus but limited to only a few states. If you are eligible, then it’s worth it to go for it. You just need one $500 direct deposit to get the bonus and the account can be easily kept fee-free with one monthly deposit of any amount.
