People's United Bank is offering $100 for opening an eligible personal checking account, but there's a catch.

This offer only applies if you work for an employer that is part of their Workplace Banking program.

How To Earn The Bonus

The People's United Bank Personal Checking promotion requires you to set up direct deposits in order to earn the $100 bonus. Full requirements to receive this bonus are:

  1. Open a new checking account using the promo code WPB2021 (if opened in branch) or open online using the link below.
  2. Within 60 days, receive direct deposits totaling $1,500 or more.

The fine print

  • Offer is valid only for a new account opened by an employee of an employer enrolled in their WorkPlace Banking program.
  • Offer not available to existing People’s United Bank personal checking account customers or anyone who has had a People’s United personal checking account within the last 365 days.

Why People's United Bank?

People's United Bank was founded in 1988 and has 400+ physical branches across Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont.

They offer checking and savings accounts, home and personal loans, credit cards, insurance, and investment products. Most of their rates are par for the industry, but their CDs are competitive, and their online banking and mobile apps offer a surprisingly pleasant digital experience for a bank of its size. Taking advantage of a welcome bonus if you live in one of the eligible areas is a no-brainer.
