WTDirect is offering a bonus for new customers who open a savings account. Above the 3.31% APY interest rate, WTDirect is offering a sign-up bonus of up to $250. You’ll have to deposit a significant sum, however, and keep the funds deposited in the bank for 60 days.
The bonus is different depending on how high you keep the balance for that time period. See the following chart:
|Minimum Balance for 60 Days||Bonus|
That’s a significant bonus for not a lot of effort. To qualify for the bonus, open a savings account at WTDirect and use the unfortunate promotion code WTF3SOB.
August 25, 2008 Update: This promotion has been canceled early due to popularity beyond WTDirect’s expectations, according to the bank.
