I liked the $300 dollar one last year better.  They seem to run lots of promos once you get in,  like I got $150 for opening a savings, then $150 twice for adding 10k.  Makes me want to stick with them a while.

If the monthly fees are $30, then doesn't the $1k option have only a net value of $20 (=200-6*30) ?

The monthly fee is $5; 6 months x $5 = $30 in total fees.  Ken's math is correct.
