This is only a small checking account bonus, but it might be worthwhile for those who want to join for other reasons (like the competitive CD rates).
Here's the link to the promotions page. The offer is scheduled to end on 6/15/2012.
Open a checking account, with a free debit card and use the card 5 times in the first 30 days. Plus, enjoy earning Flexpoints rewards for every $2 you spend with your debit card when you sign for payments.
Offer small print:
Members will receive $25 within 60 days from meeting qualifying criteria: obtaining a loan within 60 days from joining or opening a checking with a debit card and using the debit card 5 times within the first 30 days. The $25 is contingent on the account being in good standing during the 60 days from opening the account. Offer good 4/15/2012-6/15/2012. One payout per member.
