This isn't a big bonus, but if you're already an Astoria Federal customer or if there's a branch nearby, this can be an easy $50 bonus. You just have to initiate direct deposit into an Astoria Federal checking account. The details are available at this Astoria Federal promo page
. I've copied the small print below:
To be eligible for the cash bonus, direct deposit must be a new service for each customer accepting the offer. A direct deposit is considered a recurring, pre-authorized deposit credited to the customers checking account via the Automated Clearing House (ACH). One-time ACH credits such as tax refunds, payments/transfers from other bank accounts, etc. do not qualify. Cash bonus is limited to $50 per customer regardless of how many direct deposits are initiated. Customer is not eligible to receive a cash bonus for direct deposits that currently exist on the account. The direct deposit must be credited within 90 days from the date the customer request is initiated with us. Bonus to be credited within thirty (30) days after receipt of the first direct deposit transaction. $50 will be reported as interest for your account on IRS form 1099.Offer can be revoked by Astoria Federal at any time. See branch for additional terms, conditions and restrictions.
