I’ve been doing a bit of research on opening some new checking and savings accounts recently, and one significant offer that popped up was the US Bank Checking Account.
Right now, US Bank is offering a promotion to new customers for $500 if your direct deposits total over $6000, or $300 if your direct deposits total between $3000-5999 (all within a 60-day period, and if you use the code 2022OCT). This is a lot higher than any other sign up bonus I have seen from any other banks, and it is potentially worth looking at if you are not an existing US Bank customer.
Setting up a new account with direct deposit is a bit of a hassle, but it is not as difficult as you may think it is. If you have a bit of time, you can probably go through the entire process in 30 minutes or so.
While opening new checking and savings accounts isn’t as lucrative and rewarding as credit cards can be, there are still some solid bonuses (especially if you set up direct deposit). I would definitely recommend doing some research and seeing which ones work best for you!
US Bank Checking Account Recommendation Rating: 5 (if you can hit the sign up bonus)
1: Something worth checking out if you have time
2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone
3: Something worth prioritizing if interested
4: Something worth making time to check out
5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
