jsc federal credit union $100 bonus

The Fine Print

  • Direct deposit requirement must be meet within 60 days of account opening
  • $100 bonus will be deposited after the first direct deposit is received (allow up to three weeks)
  • All bank account bonuses are treated as income/interest and as such you have to pay taxes on them

Avoiding Fees

This account has no monthly fees, I wasn’t able to find a fee schedule so I’m unsure if an early account termination fee is charged – but considering there are no monthly fees it’s probably a good idea to keep the account open for at least 6 months to avoid this possibility.

Our Verdict

This bonus would be a lot more interesting if we knew it was a soft pull and it was possible to fund with a credit card, that could be the case but at the moment we simply don’t know. We’ve added it to our list of bank bonuses, but you can check out our recommended bank bonuses in the mean time while we try to find more information.

    I live in Houston, so I’ll try opening an account this week and report back on the CC funding, DD trigger, and HP.

  2. Jeremiah says:

    No CC funding, and it’s unclear whether there is a hard pull for the account. It’s a Sunday so no go on calling to ask someone, and it’s not worth the risk for $100.

    any update?

    Jeremiah, did you try this? I also live in Houston
