There is a $10 monthly fee, this is waived if you’re enrolled in eStatements and have minimum monthly direct deposit(s) totaling $1,000 or minimum average daily balance of $5,000. I found no mention of any early account termination fee in their fee schedule.
To be eligible, must join either 1) American Consumer Council (no fee), or 2) the Select Savers Club ($5 fee, note that Quorum will pay this fee). You can sign up for either of these during the application process.
Quorum membership is established through the creation of a Basic Savings account with a $5 minimum balance. This account is opened automatically and funded with a $5 deposit by us when your application is approved.
Fantastic offer and it’s nationwide with $2,500 in credit card funding. I don’t see this one lasting long to be honest, we still aren’t 100% sure it’s a soft pull but I suspect it is. Most likely this will be added to our best bank account bonus page.
Big thanks to reader, Elleni who let us know. Please consider sharing bank bonuses with this site so we can make it even better.
