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.

Personal Savings Bonuses in Colorado

Here are the current personal savings promotions available in CO:

1. Commerce Bank myRewards Savings - up to $40 bonus

Commerce Bank offers a small boost to your savings: open a myRewards savings account, and they'll match your average monthly deposit, up to $20 per account. You can repeat this for up to 5 accounts, but they cap the reward at $40 total. So, if you're depositing $20 into each account, you're actually capped at the first 2 accounts.

This is an annual benefit of the account (versus a one-time welcome offer). So, while the amount is low, it's a good deal for those putting money into savings accounts anyway.

This used to be a $50 offer ($100 total each year), but they've since decreased the reward.

2. Citi® Accelerate Savings - 4.45% APY

Citi offers a really competitive APY rate in their Citi® Accelerate Savings account, a high-yield savings product.

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.

This is a program that many investment apps now offer, but Robinhood pioneered: sign up and get a free stock. The stock has a 98% chance of being worth $5-$10, so this isn't an amazing bonus, but it's something for almost nothing (you don't even need to fund your account). The stock will hit your account within a week, and is tradeable 2 days after that.
