Santander Bank is offering new customers a $225 bonus to open a new Checking account. They have 3 options for checking accounts:
- Simply Right® Checking - $10 monthly fee waived when you make any transaction in a month.
- Santander® Basic Checking - fixed $3 monthly fee
- Santander® Premier Plus Checking - $35 monthly fee waived when you have >$6000 in direct deposits per month or greater than $75,000 in total assets at Santander.
I recommend the Simply Right® Checking since it's the easiest to avoid a monthly fee. As with most of these deals, make sure to read the fine print.
