  • After the account has been open for 10 days and has received the initial deposit, $150 will be deposited into your HRC account within 10 business day
  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

The high rate checking account does not come with any monthly fees. There is also no early account termination fee mentioned in their fee schedule.

Our Verdict

Pretty good sign up bonus if it isn’t a hard pull and you live near a branch. No real requirements to get the bonus or avoid the monthly fees is what makes it a good deal.

    I called the branch and they said it will be a hard pull.

  2. Chris says:

    I went to the branch on Saturday and signed up. The lady I talked to said it would be a soft pull as long as you don’t signup for the overdraft. I deposited $100 cash and waiting now. You do have to setup a savings account as well.
