The account must be open and have a positive balance. Bonus will be reported as interest earned on IRS Form 1099-INT and recipient is responsible for any applicable taxes.
- Offer is available almost nationwide. In NY and FL you must have an existing relationship.

Easy Checking is the best option. It has a $6.95 monthly fee that is waived with:
- Combined monthly direct deposits totaling $1000+
- Average account balance of $1,500.
- Account holder(s) age 65 or greater.
Gold Checking comes with a $14.95. Your monthly maintenance fee can be waived if you have one of the following: an open U.S. Bank personal loan, line, mortgage or credit card. Some of you may have a credit card since US Bank has several interesting products such as Business Triple Cash, Altitude Go or Altitude Reserve.
This is a very good bonus that most people should be eligible for. You can open the account online and it is easy to keep it fee-free. The Easy Checking account fee is waived if you have an average account balance of $1,500, and the Gold Checking fee is waived if you have a US Bank credit card. To get the maximum bonus you need to complete direct deposits that total $5,000 or more within 60 days and enroll in U.S. Bank online banking or the U.S. Bank mobile app.
