Previously you only need to have $10,000 tied up, but now you need twice as much. But you no longer need to complete a direct deposit, which makes it easier for some people.
The bonus comes in two parts. The Checking bonus is $350 and it requires a $10,000 balance for two months. The Savings bonus has the same requirements, but you only get $100. That works out to 21% APR for the Checking account and 6% for the Savings account.
