1. PNC Virtual Wallet® - up to $400 bonus

2. U.S. Bank Smartly® Checking - up to $700 bonus

U.S. Bank is offering up to a $700 bonus for opening a new U.S. Bank Smartly® Checking and Standard Savings account. This is back towards the high end of bonuses we've seen from U.S. Bank. This is a multipart bonus, meaning the more activities you complete, the more you can earn.

The direct deposit threshold for the checking bonus is somewhat steep, at a minimum $3,000 to earn a checking bonus, but if you have the income, this is an easy bonus. You'll have 90 days to reach this target, but keep in mind that unlike some banks that let you hit the bonus in a single transaction, U.S. Bank requires at least two direct deposits to qualify for this promotion.

The second part of the bonus is for opening a Standard Savings account and maintaining a minimum balance. They've lowered the minimum balance requirements down to $15,000 this go around.

There's no opening deposit minimum or ongoing balance requirements, but do keep in mind that having a $0 balance for longer than 3 months could cause your account to be closed.

Arizona Banking Stats

Despite having so many stellar bank bonuses, Arizona has fewer banks than most states.

According to S&P Global, the number of banks in Arizona has declined over the last couple of decades due to mergers and acquisitions and the Great Financial Crisis. Today, Arizona is tied in 7th place with Delaware and Oregon for having the fewest banks, with 15 total.

The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) reports that out-of-state banks account for 69.5% of all bank deposits in the state. It also reports that there are 35 credit unions based in Arizona, with 1,947, 719 members.

Fortunately, a lot of regional, national, and online banks and several credit unions offer promotions to Arizona residents, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding bonuses you’re eligible for.
