Update on $250 Checking Account Bonus at South Carolina FCU

POSTED ON BY

There are currently several good deals in South Carolina for savers. In addition to the high yield CD's at SAFE FCU of South Carolina (see post), South Carolina Federal is offering a $250 checking account bonus. I had first mentioned this on November 1st, but I thought this promotion was worthwhile enough to mention again. South Carolina Federal's field of membership is open to those in many South Carolina counties. Please refer to my previous post for more info.
