Sound Credit Union In Washington State Offers $100 Checking Account Bonus

You must make three direct deposits to qualifyWashington State residents can get a free $100 by opening a checking account at Sound Credit Union and receiving three direct deposits.

The Tacoma, Wash.-based credit union has five checking accounts to choose among, but you’re best off selecting either the Free Checking account or — if you’re at least 55 years old — the Visions Checking account.

You won’t be charged a monthly fee with either account, and there are no minimum balance requirements.

While you also can open a Plus, Advantage or High-Yield Checking account, you’ll pay monthly fees unless you meet minimum balance requirements, and the interest you’ll earn on the accounts is paltry — as low as 0.05% APY.

The Visions Checking account also pays only 0.05% APY, but with no minimum balance requirements and no fees, it’s a solid choice for those who meet the age restrictions.

To get the $100 bonus, you must not have had a Sound checking account in the past 12 months.

Any checking account requires a minimum $50 deposit to open, and to receive the bonus, you must set up a recurring payroll direct deposit of at least $250 each month. After your third direct deposit lands in your account, you’ll receive $100 on the first business day of the following month.

Sound Credit Union ( membership is open to anyone who lives or works in Washington State, or has a family member who does.

First you’ll need to open a savings account, which requires a $25 minimum deposit.

A savings account can be opened at any of the credit union’s 20 branches or by mail. Then you can open your checking account either in person or by phone.
