one thing off my to do list

July 23rd, 2018 at 08:07 pm

I have a big to do list that I can't seem to get to. Today I did one of the things on the list. I opened a new account at a local bank since my nearest branch of regular bank is a pain to get to.
It was a special deal that if referred by a member ( my son) and open a savings /checking combo and make 5 deposits/ checks or atm / debit card transactions a month and in 90 days we both get $100 and they pay 6% on the first 500 in checking and 500 in savings so I will transfer over money to at least make the 6%. Every little bit helps right?

I opened account with some change I rolled up had $24 dollars. with a new account(s) to feed..... maybe it will inspire me to keep working even though I am still not thrilled about this job.

    Sounds like a decent deal if you make enough deposits. I'm surprised you could open with $24. Most of the banks around here require a minimum of over $100.

    I was a bit surprised too had the ability to open with much more if needed but they seemed perfectly fine with just my rolled coins. I plan on depositing $500 as long as I have that much in checking I met all requirements to collect my $100 in now about 81 days. I have already moved a good portion of my smaller EF to savings to collect the interest. I know it sounds weird as I will be making interest it is hard to suck out my EFi like the balances to stay the same.
