Update 9/2022: If you are an existing SoFi Checking user, look for an e-mail that includes a deposit bonus worth up to $1,000. More details on the SoFi Balance Offer promo page, which states “This offer is limited to one per account. You must receive this offer directly from SoFi to be eligible.” Both of us were targeted, so it doesn’t seem too picky.
- Transfer new cash (at least $5k) into your account by 9/30/22.
- Maintain your balance until at least 11/30/22 in order to receive your rewards.
- As long as your account is in good standing, you will receive your rewards points by 12/14/22.
Tiers are all 1% of the minimum tier amount, up to a $1,000 bonus for $100,000+ in new funds:
If you consider the minimum holding period to be 2 months, this works out to an additional effective 6% APY during that time period. If you consider the minimum holding period to be 3 months, this works out to an additional effective 4% APY during that time period. This would be on top of the ongoing interest rate, currently a competitive 2.00% APY as of 9/8/22. This is a solid bonus for existing users.
If you don’t have a SoFi checking account yet, check out the new referral offer of $25 new user bonus + $300 direct deposit bonus. Open a new SoFi Money account and add at least $10 to your account within 5 days, and get $25. Then get up to $300 additional bonus with qualifying direct deposit. Details here.
