$600 Bonus Momentum Checking - 7/20/2023

I usually throw out those Valpak advertising coupons without even opening the envelope. This time I rummaged through them and found an offer code from Fifth Third for this deal. No direct deposit required. You need to deposit $15K within 45 days of opening the account and leave it there for 90 days. The verbiage is unclear whether it's 90 days from account opening or 90 days from the date of your deposit. CSR claims it's the latter. Momentum Checking has no minimum balance and no monthly maintenance fees. You can apply for this account and input the offer code online.  No need to visit a branch. Fifth Third Bank has two branches within 5 miles of where I live. I'm pretty sure the bank is targeting zip codes with good potential for attracting clients.

Great 5.30% Money Market Rate!! - 7/18/2023

I got a mailing from them last week about a special offer for their Money Market account that offers an excellent rate of 5.30% and is guaranteed until 1/1/24. Only requirement is $25K minimum kept in for duration.

$325 Bonus Offer For Opening A Checking Account With $500 Direct Deposit - 1/31/2023

This one was even easier than Discover's offer. $500 initial direct deposit to trigger bonus. (transfer from Fidelity worked for me but have googled that transfers (pushes, not pulls) from some banks like capital one and wells fargo have worked for others) Bonus was paid 1 day after direct deposit! No debit card or checks required. No account fees either. Seems like a good bank, may just keep the account open.

5/3 Bank

Fifth-Third Bank is a great bank. I have a checking and savings account with them. I have never had any issues with them. Deposits go through in a regular amount of time. I like the different options for my checking account. The people are nice and answer questions thoroughly and efficiently. I wish they had slightly better rates but they are competitive so I don't see any need to move.

will not accept NY address, CSR says they only do business in states that they have branches in.

Opened a promotional CD last year with a very competitve rate (2.5% - 9 months). It is now coming due. I am not renewing and have to go into a branch to transfer the proceeds to my checking account. Chances are I will be closing that as well. Definitely not making my life a 5/3 better.

This is the worst bank to deal with, their employees provide you with false information on their days/hours open, what you can accomplish during the phone call, what you are able to do, etc. The online website is a complete and total joke - they make it impossible to sign up, waste hours of your time, charge fees, and are unwilling to help. They are illiterate, unhelpful, and rude.
