Talmer Bank and Trust will give you a $250 bonus when you open a new eClassic Checking account and set up at least 1 monthly recurring direct deposit of $150 or more.
Updated April 11, 2016: This is an extended promotion for the original offer that expired on March 11, 2016, but there is no set expiration date for this new offer, so it will be available as long as it is displayed on their website.
Talmer Bank and Trust has branches in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Nevada, and Ohio.
In order to open an account, you must visit your local branch to apply in person.
I called Talmer Bank to inquire as to whether this offer might be available nationally, but since you must open your account in-branch, there is no way to qualify if you don’t live near a branch or plan to travel near a branch.
Talmer Bank and Trust $250 Personal Checking Offer
1. Open a new eClassic Checking account.
2. Set up a single monthly recurring direct deposit of $150 or more within 60 days of account opening.
3. Receive the $250 bonus deposited into your account within 120 days of receiving your first direct deposit.
4. Maintain your account for at least 180 days, or a $25 fee will apply at account closing.
Direct Deposit Requirement:
The direct deposit needs to be an electronic deposit such as a paycheck or pension from your employer, or government benefits such as Social Security.
This offer is available to new Talmer Bank and Trust personal checking account customers only.
A new customer is defined as not having a personal checking account with Talmer Bank within the last 12 months.
There is a limit of 1 promotional payout per account.
