Personal Checking Bonuses in Arkansas

Here are the current personal checking promotions available in AR:

1. 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.

Personal Savings Bonuses in Arkansas

Here are the current personal savings promotions available in AR:

1. Citi® Accelerate Savings - 4.45% APY

Citi, on the other hand, has no limit. So for those who have sizable savings they'd like to keep liquid, Citi® Accelerate Savings will often win out.

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.

Business Bonuses in Arkansas

Here are the current business banking promotions available in AR:

1. Truist Business Checking - $400 bonus

Truist Bank is offering small business owners one of the easiest business checking account bonuses we've seen to date: $400 for depositing $1,500 into your new account. (Well, you'll also have to enroll and sign-in to online banking, but we don't really consider that as much of a hurdle...). This is up from $300 when it was most recently offered.

The Truist Simple Business Checking account has no monthly fee and comes with 50 free transactions each month – in other words, it's perfect for a small business just starting out. If your company has surpassed these thresholds, Truist offers their Dynamic Business Checking account. That one comes with higher limits, but does have a small (and avoidable) maintenance fee.

Keep in mind that you'll have 30 days to complete both requirements, and that your new account will need to remain open for 6 months in order to avoid forfeiting the bonus.
