  1. Open a new Value Checking account using the link below.
  2. Within 30 days, deposit $10,000 and maintain that balance for your 2nd and 3rd statement cycle.
  3. Within 60 days of account opening, receive a direct deposit.

The fine print

  • Offer not available to existing Amerant Bank customers, prior customers who have had an Amerant Bank personal checking relationship within the preceding 90 days or have been paid a promotional premium in the past 24 months.
  • Limited to one checking account per new customer.
  • If multiple accounts are opened with the same signers, only one account will be eligible for the bonus.
  • Applicant must be a citizen or resident alien of the United States (U.S.) who is at least 18 years old with a valid U.S. taxpayer identification number.
  • To receive the bonus, your Value Checking Account must be open and in good standing at the time of payout.
  • This promotion may be extended, modified or discontinued at any time, and may vary by market.
  • A “Qualifying Direct Deposit” means a recurring Direct Deposit of a paycheck, pension, Social Security or other regular monthly income electronically deposited by an employer or the government into Value Checking Account. Person-to-person and bank transfers from accounts you have at other financial institutions do not qualify.

Why Amerant Bank?

Value Checking

Value Checking is Amerant Bank's entry tier personal checking account. The monthly fee is $5 but easily waived, and the account includes all of the standard features you'd expect: Bill Pay, mobile banking with check deposit, and unlimited check writing (including a free starter pack at account opening).

The account requires $50 to open, but has no balance requirements thereafter.

Fees

Value Checking does charge a monthly fee of $5, but there are ways to get this waived:

  • Enroll in online statements.
  • OR, receive monthly direct deposits.
  • OR, complete 4 debit card transactions per statement cycle.
