Not to be confused with the other North Shore Bank, this North Shore Bank (headquartered in Massachusetts) is offering a $300 welcome bonus to new checking account customers.

They're celebrating the opening of their Reading Branch location, so they've restricted this to zip codes within Eastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire only.

If you're eligible, this is a pretty decent bonus with a relatively easy requirement: just receive 2 direct deposits of at least $250 each.

How To Earn The Bonus

The North Shore Bank Personal Checking promotion requires you to set up direct deposits in order to earn the $300 bonus. Full requirements to receive this bonus are:

  1. Open a new personal checking account using the promo code READING300.
  2. Within 60 days, receive two (2) recurring direct deposits of $250 each.
  3. Bonus will be paid no later than 90 days from account opening.

The fine print

  • To qualify for the bonus you must not currently have a personal checking account with North Shore Bank.
  • Accounts must be opened at the 31 Harnden Street, Reading Branch, or online with the code READING300.
  • Direct deposits may include salary, pension, Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits or other regularly scheduled electronic deposits.
  • Accounts that are overdrawn during the promotional period will be ineligible to receive the bonus.
  • We may change or discontinue this offer at any time without notice.
  • One bonus per individual as identified by Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN).

Why North Shore Bank?

Advantage Checking

Advantage Checking is very similar to North Shore Bank's Interest Checking, but this account earns a slightly lower rate.

In exchange for the lower rate, however, Advantage Checking gains unlimited free foreign ATM withdrawals, unlimited ATM surcharge rebates, fee-free domestic wire transfers, and preferred CD rates.

Fees

Advantage Checking does charge a monthly fee of $20, but there are ways to get this waived:

  • Maintain an average daily balance of $10,000 in any combination of North Shore Bank savings, CDs, checking, or money market accounts.

Interest Checking

Interest Checking offers North Shore Bank's most competitive interest rate. You'll also get unlimited check writing, 5 free foreign ATM transactions, and $10 in ATM fee reimbursements each month.

This is in addition of course to standard checking account features like online and mobile banking, mobile check deposit, and bill pay.
