U.S. Bank Promotions – $300 Checking Account, $200-$500 Credit Card Bonus

I love a good bank promotion and U.S. Bank just released a sizzling hot one for you guys.

I first heard about U.S. Bank from a business partner (they don’t have a location in Maryland). They had a good relationship with their business banker so when we started a new venture, we got just added a new U.S. Bank business account.

It was pretty streamlined and while we didn’t get a bonus, I did learn later that U.S. Bank has some pretty solid new account bonuses.

The bank account bonus is good but keep reading because the credit card bonus is phenomenal!

1. U.S. Bank Consumer Checking Offer – $300 [EXPIRED]

Editor’s Note: As of April 26th, U.S. Bank is no longer offering this new account bonus. For more bonuses, check out our post on the best bank bonuses and promotions or click here to sign up for our email newsletter and get notified of new bank promotions.

Their richest offer for a consumer checking account is currently $300.

It’s a simple bonus to get as long as you are in their geographic footprint. If you aren’t, you won’t get approved for an account.

The checking requirements are that you:

  • Open a new U.S. Bank Gold, Platinum or Easy Checking account by 4/25/2022 with the promo code 22WEB04 (must enter this code in manually!),
  • Complete two or more direct deposits totaling $4,000 or more and enroll in online banking or the U.S. Bank Mobile app within the first 60 days of opening your account.
This offer is not tiered this time around but had been previously.

Several checking accounts work for this offer including the Platinum Checking Package, Gold Checking Package, or Easy Checking Package.

The Platinum Checking Package is their highest tier checking account that pays a little bit of interest. There are no ATM transaction fees for non-U.S. Bank ATMs and you also get no-fee overdraft protection transfers. There is a $24.95 monthly maintenance fee that is waived if you have $25,000+ in combined personal deposits, credit balances with U.S. Bank (or investments with U.S. Bancorp Investments) or you have a personal trust relationship with U.S. Bank Wealth Management.

The Gold Checking Package doesn’t pay interest but you get you won’t get charged ATM fees on the first two non-U.S. Bank ATM transactions. You also get reduced overdraft protection fees. There is a $14.95 monthly maintenance fee unless you have an open U.S. Bank personal loan, line, mortgage or credit card.

Finally, Easy Checking is the most basic of the checking accounts and has a $6.95 monthly maintenance fee unless you have combined monthly direct deposits totaling $1,000+ or you maintain an average balance of $1,500+ or you are an account holder who is 65 or older. You want to make sure you’re enrolled in eStatements to avoid a $2 fee on paper statements (this is waived if you are aged 65+).

Since every checking account package qualifies for the bonus, it seems to make the most sense to go with the Easy Checking package!

  1. mat kim says

    I used the link on this page to apply for the easy checking. I used an ACH deposit from my personal account. US Bank said they will not acknowledge any ACH that is not from a government agency or employer. I understand direct deposit can mean a lot things including various ACH deposits [depending on the bank]. Honestly, I would continue to use their services if they gave me a reason. Unfortunately they are doing the opposite and I will stay clear of them especially since they are the most ethical bank, right?

    • Jim Wang says

      These types of promotions generally require a direct deposit from an employer or government entity (benefits) – it’s almost universal in that way because it’s seen as a way to make the account “stickier.”

  2. DK Jackson says

    If your direct deposit is Social Security, you cannot meet the 60-day criteria. It takes two payment cycles for Social Security to process a change in direct deposit. US Bank will not take this information into consideration and will not provide the incentive.

  3. H. Stone says

    The US Bank announcement is misleading: Doesn’t mention that you must complete recurring direct deposits that total $4,000 or more and be enrolled in e-statements within 60 days of account opening.

    • Jim Wang says

      Yes you are correct, I’ve updated the post to reflect the clearer language. The $4,000 figure is in their terms and conditions and not higher up on the page, which can be misleading. Thank you!
