This is an easy $50 bonus if you have unused debit cards from other banks. You can get $50 from Bethpage Credit Union when you open its checking account and trade in your debit card from another financial institution.
The credit union is also offering a $25 refer-a-friend bonus.
Details are listed on the credit union's Bonus Checking page
Bethpage's Bonus Checking account is a free reward checking account although the interest rate is disappointing. You can qualify for 1.00% APY if you meet monthly requirements including 15 debit card purchases. There doesn't appear to be a balance cap.
Another nice thing to note about Bethpage is that they are part of the shared branch network and the Co-Op ATM network.
Membership is open to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Nassau county or Suffolk county, (with the exception of the townships of East Hampton, Southampton, and Shelter Island).
