Bank of the West has a $150 checking account bonus available to new customers that reside in many Western states good until 3/6/2015. There is a $300 Premier checking bonus, but keeping the account fee-free is much more difficult. Instead, I recommend to open the Easy Checking for the $150 bonus with just a $100 opening deposit requirement. You will need to keep $1K balance OR use your debit card 10 times per month for them to waive the $10 monthly fee. With Easy checking, you get unlimited access to Bank of the West ATMs, free Online and Mobile Banking with Bill Pay, and free debit card.
How to get your $150 cash bonus:
- Fund account with a minimum of $100 opening deposit.
- For the first $100: Make a direct deposit of at least $250 or more by 5/29/2015
- For the additional $50: Make 10 debit card purchases for the two months following the posting of the opening deposit. Each purchase must be $3 or more.
