Pinnacle Bank is again offering a $100 bonus for opening its PinnCheck Free checking account online. If you missed the one last year, this is another chance. Like last year, the bonus doesn’t require much work. The only requirements listed in the bank's promotions page are:
- Web-exclusive offer for new Pinnacle Bank customers only
- Minimum amount to open an account is $100
- Account must be maintained in good standing for the first 90 days
- Offer valid for PinnCheck Free applicants only
Offer expires April 30, 2013. According to the terms, it's only available to residents of Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Wyoming and Colorado.
It's rare to find a $100 checking account bonus that does not require direct deposit, online bill pay usage or debit card purchases.
PinnCheck Free is a free checking account with no maintenance fee and no minimum balance. It also has unlimited check writing and free online bill pay. Statements must be in electronic format.
Pinnacle Bank used to have an internet division called BankOn which offered a high-yield online savings account. However, the BankOn website is no longer active.
Most of Pinnacle Bank branches are located in Nebraska. There are also a few branches in Kansas and Missouri. The major cities with branches are Abilene, KS and Lincoln and Omaha, NE.
The bank has an overall health score at DepositAccounts.com of 5 stars (out of 5) with a Texas ratio of 6.76% (above average) based on December 2012 data. Please refer to our financial overview of Pinnacle Bank for more details. The bank has been a FDIC member since 1934 (FDIC Certificate # 10634).
