Our Verdict

They also have a $150 personal bonus, should be possible to do both at the same time. Assuming you can open these and get the bonus without the flyer they could be a good deal, but currently we don’t know enough about this bank to really pass verdict. Because of that it won’t be added to the list of the best bank account bonuses.

  1. JASON says:

    According to the comments on previous post, they are Chex sensitive and you also need to close the account in branch. Doubt they have their app or maybe even online banking.

  2. Billy says:

    FWIW, it’s usually a hard pull to open a merchant services account.

  3. Jeremy says:

    I opened the personal checking account and Business Solutions checking accounts today. They have online banking and a mobile app. Both accounts are tied together online so only one logon is required. I will say that it took over an hour an a half today to open the accounts in the branch. They do the merchant services directly with TSYS apparently so the application process isn’t done the same day as the checking accounts. I have the scanned offers for the $300 business and the $150 for the personal checking accounts if needed. Also you don’t have to have the flyers when you go into the branch.

    Deal is back from 6/1/17 to 8/31/17. I’ll send an email to give you the updated flyer.
