Early Account Termination Fee
I wasn’t able to find the full fee schedule so unsure if there is an early account termination fee or not.
They had a bigger bonus in the past, but they added an end date that was before our post. This $100 bonus is much smaller, but hopefully people can actually sign up for it this time. Probably worth it if it’s a soft pull.
