Bank of the West $150 Checking Bonus

by Andy Hough on January 27, 2015 · 0 comments

I have opened a couple of checking accounts with Bank of the West before in order to receive bonuses and found the process fairly easy. They have bonus offers on accounts other than the Easy Checking account, but I think it is the best deal. I plan on doing this bonus myself. Just visit the Bank of the West home page to see the details on this bonus. The bonus is only available in certain states.

Open an Easy Checking account, and when you enroll in direct deposit you’ll receive $100. Also, make 10 debit card purchases in each of the first two months following the month you fund your account, and you will get another $50.

To receive the $100 bonus, customer must have a direct deposit of at least $250 (two or more direct deposits that add up to $250 do not qualify) posted to the account by 05/29/15. Direct deposit must be payroll, Social Security, pension or other government benefits.

To receive the $50 bonus, customer must request, receive and use a new Bank of the West Debit Card linked to the new checking account for 10 or more debit card purchases all of which must post to the account by the last business day of the month for each of the first two full calendar months immediately following the month in which the opening deposit posts to the account, for a total of 20 or more transactions. Each purchase must be $3 or more. All required purchases must be posted by 05/29/15.

Offer is not available to existing Bank of the West customers with an open checking account as of 01/23/15. If the customer or other individuals residing at the same address received or may receive any other consumer checking bonus from the Bank between 01/01/14 and 06/29/15, then no one at that address is eligible. Limit of one bonus per individual and per mailing address. Bonus cannot be combined with any other offers. Employees of Bank of the West and its affiliates are not eligible for this offer. Account must be in open status and have a positive balance as of 05/29/15 to be eligible to receive any bonus. Bonus will be credited to the open checking account by 06/30/15. Offer does not apply to second or multiple checking accounts. Bank will classify the cash bonus as interest paid to the checking account. Any applicable taxes associated with this offer are the responsibility of the account holder. To the extent required by law, Bank will report total value of the offer to the IRS on Form 1099 for tax year 2015. All accounts are subject to the Bank’s standard terms and conditions and Schedule of Fees and Charges.
