Associated Bank sign-up bonus
|Minimum deposit required to qualify||$100|
|Other requirements||Within 45 days of opening the account, use online bill pay at least three times or receive a direct deposit of at least $300|
|Expires||Dec. 31, 2017|
Associated’s sign-up bonus is relatively easy to qualify for compared with some other banks’ promotions, which may require a high minimum opening deposit or average balance. Open your account with at least $100. Then you have one and a half months to fulfill one of these options: Use online bill pay services three times, or receive a direct deposit of $300 or more. Choose the most convenient option. You’ll receive your bonus within 75 days of opening your account.
Apart from the $150 bonus, Brewers Checking offers a few other perks such as a baseball-themed debit card, access to ticket deals and a discount at the official team store.
Apart from the name and the team-related discounts, this account has the same fees and services as a standard Associated Checking or Associated Elite Checking account.
Dodge the fees, take the bonus
We wouldn’t recommend joining a bank based solely on its sign-up bonus. But if you think Associated Bank is a good fit overall, go for it. First, make sure you can avoid Associated Checking’s $11 monthly fee. Methods include receiving $500 in direct deposits a month or keeping a $1,000 minimum daily balance.
