The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • CommunityAmerica Credit Union is offering a bonus of $200 when you open a new Chiefs checking account and complete the following requirements within 45 days of account opening:
    • Provide your email address.
    • Enroll in eStatements.
    • Set up a recurring monthly direct deposit of at least $250, not aggregated.

 

The Fine Print

  • The direct deposit needs to be an electronic deposit of your paycheck, pension or government benefits from your employer or the government. Person to person payments (such as Popmoney) are not considered a direct deposit.
  • Within 30 days of meeting qualification requirements, a $150 credit will be posted into the primary account owner’s membership savings account. The account must be open and in good standing at the time of payout to qualify for the credit.
  • Examples of ineligible accounts may include: delinquent accounts, accounts that have caused the credit union to experience a loss, accounts in which we suspect illegal activity, fraud, scam or financial exploitation, or accounts involved in legal or administrative proceedings.
  • Limit one $150 credit per account and per member. Offer subject to change without notice and cannot be combined with any other offer.
  • The credit may be reported as income on IRS Form 1099-MISC.
  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

This account has no monthly fees to worry about.

Early Account Termination Fee

I don’t see any early account termination fee mentioned. Last time this bonus was offered the accounts need to stay open for six months otherwise bonus was forfeited.

Our Verdict

Not really worth considering due to the hard pull, previously we’ve seen the same bonus with no direct deposit requirement as well. Because of this we won’t add this to our best bank bonus page.

Better than the previous $200 checking bonus and no targeted language this time. If it is a soft pull to open then definitely worth doing.

Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

The premium checking account has a $4.95 monthly fee.

Early Account Termination Fee

I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule so I’m unsure if there is an early account termination fee.

Our Verdict

Normally we don’t post checking bonuses unless they are at least $100, but this is nationwide. I suspect we will be seeing a lot of these nextgen banking apps/cards offering bonuses like this in the future. Personally I’d recommend waiting for a larger bonus from current as I don’t think this will be the best bonus ever offered by them. Because of that I won’t be adding this to the list of the best checking account bonuses.
