Alliant Credit Union is sending out a $150 checking account bonus to current members, as I’ve now received an email and mail flyer about the offer, and they offer open membership to anyone in the U.S.
These may be targeted promotions for current Alliant members, so not everyone may be able to qualify, although it doesn’t indicate anywhere that this offer is targeted, so it may be worth a try if you want to open a new Alliant CU membership.
For personal assistance and to inquire whether or not you may qualify, you can call 1-800-328-1935 or visit an Alliant Branch, or you can apply for an Alliant Checking Account using promo code CHEK002.
Anybody can become a member of Alliant Credit Union by making a 1-time $10 donation to the Foster Care to Success organization.
$150 Alliant Checking Account Bonus
To qualify to receive the $150 bonus deposit, the current member must open an Alliant checking account between September 2, 2014, and October 31, 2014, and complete the following 3 actions by November 14, 2014:
1. Meet the 2 requirements of Alliant High Rate Checking, which includes opting out of paper statements AND making at least 1 monthly electronic deposit (direct deposit, payroll deposit, ATM deposit, or transfer from another financial institution).
2. Make at least 1 signature- or PIN-based purchase with the Alliant Credit Union Visa Debit Card.
3. Make at least 1 online bill payment using the free bill pay service in Alliant Online Banking.
When applying for your checking account, use promo code CHEK002.
The $150 bonus offer is available for new checking accountholders only, including Free Teen Checking.
This bonus deposit offer is not applicable to those who opened an Alliant checking account prior to September 2, 2014, or those who open Alliant checking after October 31, 2014.
There is no minimum balance required to earn the bonus.
This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other checking offer.
There is a limit of 1 $150 bonus deposit per member.
Alliant will deposit the $150 bonus deposit directly into your account by November 28, 2014, so it will appear on your November 2014 eStatement.
You can check the status of the bonus deposit on Alliant Online Banking.
The $150 bonus deposit is considered as taxable income and will be paid as a special dividend and reported on IRS Form 1099-INT.
This account must remain open for at least 6 months, or the bonus amount will be subtracted from your checking or savings account upon closing.
