30+ transactions, is that for real?  Who'd do that?

They obviously are targeting local customers who will make this account their sole checking account, and reward them for doing so.  In today's low-rate environment, 2.5% on a $50K cap is pretty decent.  They're not looking for the rate chasers who are the primary readers of this site (myself included).

Does not appear to be for all states.  Unless you are an employee or member of Coastal's Business Partners, you can only join through the North Carolina Consumers Council Membership as a resident of N. or S. Carolina or Virginia (according to the online app).
