$100 Checking Account Bonus at a Washington State CU (Sound)


Sound Credit Union
Sound Credit Union is offering a special $100 bonus for opening a new checking account and either having direct deposit OR an active checking account. A reader reported being told that an active checking just requires that the account be used each month (bill pay, deposit/withdrawal, etc.). The bonus will be deposited after direct deposit is established or if you have an active checking account in good standing after 30 days. The offer ends on April 30, 2008.

The free checking account has the typical features like no monthly service charges and free bill pay. It also has some above-average features like free checks for life and one free overdraft a year.

Membership is open to anyone who lives or works in Washington State or who has a direct relative who is a member or would be eligible to be a member. Please refer to their You-Can-Join page for the full details. Membership requires a minimum $25 deposit in the savings account.

Branches are located in the Washington cities of Auburn, Lakewood, Gig Harbor, Key Center, Olympia, Puyallup and Tacoma. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 66331). It has $362.5 million in assets and 35,984 members.

Thanks to the reader who mentioned this promotion in the Finding-the-best-rates post.

I just called them. You have to come to a branch to join the CU and open the new checking account. They said that is for ID and notarization purpose.
