WesBanco’s most recent checking account bonus expired on December 31, 2016. WesBanco does not offer its checking bonuses on a regular basis, so I was pleased when DA reader, Carpline, informed me about WesBonco’s newest checking bonus, which can pay up to $200. Like previous bonus offers, this new bonus is broken into increments, with all bonus activity required to occur and post to the account within 90 days of account opening. Unlike the previous bonus, this one has no stated end date.
- $50 – Two Direct Deposits at least $200 each
- $50 – 20 debit card transactions
- $50 – Using mobile banking
- $50 – Activating eStatements
As an extra $50 bonus,
Refer a Friend Bonus: Friend must open a qualified checking account with a Refer a Friend form and be a new WesBanco checking account customer. Bonus will be credited to the account after the referred friend opens a checking account.
- Minimum opening deposit is $50 of new money.
- All bonus activity must occur and post to the account within 90 days of new account opening.
- Current WesBanco checking customers are not eligible for any of the bonuses.
- Bonuses are limited to one per account and may not be used in combination with other offers.
- Customers who have received any previous WesBanco checking account bonuses are not eligible.
- Checking account must be in good standing at the time of bonus payment.
- Bonus will be credited to the new account within five business days after the 90-day bonus period.

WesBanco is currently the largest bank headquartered in West Virginia, with assets in excess of $9.7 billion. WesBanco’s website list more than 60 “key dates in our history” – far too many to mention here - including 20 acquisitions, a couple mergers, and a few name changes.
Today our bank operates under the same basic charter that was issued on January 20,
1870 to “The German Bank” which officially began operations on April 3, 1870. Seventeen
years later, on February 3, 1887, the Dollar Savings Bank was organized in Wheeling. The
two banks would eventually merge and the combined bank’s leaders were incredibly active
in building a better, stronger region. It was the first of many acquisitions and mergers that
would allow us to grow with the needs of our customers.
The above rates are accurate as of 5/5/2017.
