  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

Monthly Fees

Priority Checking account has a $21 monthly fee, this is waived if you do one of the following:

  • a minimum daily collected balance of $10,000 or more;
  • $25,000 in combined deposits (excluding CDs and IRAs) or consumer loans (excluding mortgages) or credit card balances;
  • $250,000 or more in a Trust account or account (excluding annuities) with Hancock Whitney Investment Services.

Early Account Termination Fee

$20 fee is charged for each account if the account is closed within 180 days. Looks like you might also forfeit the bonus.

Our Verdict

There was a previous $500 deal. That required the same account, normally the $300 bonuses only require the silver checking account that is easier to keep fee free. Because of that I wouldn’t recommend doing this bonus, either wait for the bigger bonus to return or wait for a $300 bonus that is easier to keep fee free.

Post history:

  • Deal has been extended until December 31, 2020. But there is now a $300 bonus.
  • Update 7/18/20: Terms say this ended on 6/30, but if you e-mail yourself a promo code it says valid thru 9/31/20. I’m guessing they just forgot to update the fine print. Hat tip to reader BlaseBB
