You can get a $50 bonus when you open a new Optimizer Plus High Yield Savings Account with Synchrony Bank. To receive the $50 bonus you need to deposit at least $10,000 of new funds into the Synchrony Bank High Yield Savings Account by November 21, 2014 and maintain a minimum balance of $10,000 for 90 days. The bonus will be credited to the account after approximately 90 days. To apply for the bonus go to myoptimizerplus.com and open an account using the promo code FallSpecial. You need to maintain at least a $50 balance to avoid a $5 monthly service charge. Visit the bank promo site for more details on the bonus and the account.
This isn’t a bad deal, but I’m not sure if it is worth moving $10,000 to get a $50 bonus. The account does currently pay 0.95% APY which is better than what I’m currently earning so it could be worth it if I moved the money and just left it there to earn a little more. The bonus doesn’t last much longer so I guess I need to make up my mind soon if I’m going to do this.
