A valid referral requires an individual who:
- meets SkyOne’s membership requirements
- opens a new membership at SkyOne through an in-person representative OR online
- deposits the minimum opening balance amount of $5
- maintains the new account in good standing for a period of thirty (30) days

This is a great bonus. You can earn a total of $700 if you open a checking and savings account. Opening the account will take some extra steps as you first need to become a member of SkyOne Federal Credit Union. The cheapest option is to just make a donation to surfrider. But you should also consider joining ACC for $10 as you can possible use it for other bonuses.
To get the full $700 you need to wait 9+ months. The $200 checking bonus is much quicker. You will get the $200 after you complete your direct deposit requirements and deposit $2,500 in the account.
