A nice bonus $250, but it does have a few requirements such as a direct deposit of $500 and 15 debit card purchases. But you can also earn a 2.50% APY which is very competitive. The main issue with this bonus is that you need to go into a branch to open the account. Opening it online will probably result in a hard pull, and those should be reserved for credit cards. The bonus is also limited to just two states where they have branches.
