If you live in Oregon, Washington, California, or Idaho, you may be able to take advantage of a promotion being offered by Banner Bank.
The dollar amounts are pretty good for an offer nowadays, given higher interest rates and the hassle of moving over a direct deposit, so this might be a good fit for someone in search of a bonus offer.
It’s not a super compelling offer but one that just might fit what you need.
Who is Banner Bank?
Banner Bank is a regional bank with branches in OR, WA, CA and ID. They are FDIC insured (FDIC #28489) and were founded more than 130 years ago with solid financials (five stars from Bauer Financial) and $16.6 billion in assets.
What they lack in a geographic footprint, they make up for with all their charitable work. In 2020, they supported more than a thousand charitable and community causes within their foot print. They gave over $3.5 million and thousands of volunteer hours. It seems like a great bank to work with.
Banner Bank $200 & $500 Bonus
Banner Bank has a new account bundle bonus when you open a checking and savings/money market account at the same time and fund it with sufficient funds. You will also need to complete at least $1,000 of direct deposits.
To get $200, you need to open a new personal checking account and a new personal savings or money market at the same time, meet $2,000 deposit requirements for 90 days and set up monthly auto transfer.
To get $500, you need to open a new personal checking account and a new personal savings or money market at the same time, meet $26,000 deposit requirements for 90 days and set up monthly auto transfer.
The offer code is 23BU and this can be opened online or at a branch.
📢 The promotional page was recently updated to $200 and $500 (up from $100 and $400) but the terms and conditions weren’t updated yet to match the bonus amounts.
Offer is available to residents of OR, WA, CA or ID only.
