Early Account Termination Fee

$30 if closed within 180 days.

Our Verdict

Looks like any ACH credit will work rather than it having to be payroll or government benefits. Considering it’s a soft pull, if you live in the area this is well worth doing as it’s easy to meet bonus requirements and keep the account fee free. As always please share your experiences & data points in the comments below. I’ll be adding this to the best bank bonuses.
