If you live in Colorado, Sunwest Credit Union is offering a $100 welcome bonus when you open a new personal checking account and set up direct deposit.

While the $100 offer isn't the largest bonus out there, the direct deposit can be of any amount and the checking account is free, so it's still a worthwhile offer in our opinion.

How To Earn The Bonus

The Sunwest Educational Credit Union Free Checking promotion requires you to set up direct deposits in order to earn the $100 bonus.

Full requirements to receive this bonus are:

  1. Become a member of Sunwest Credit Union.
  2. Open a personal checking account using the promo code "Grab100".
  3. By October 31, 2022, receive a direct deposit.
  4. Bonus will be credited to your account within 30 days of completing the requirements.

The fine print

  • Direct deposit must be a regular monthly income (such as salary, pension, Social Security, etc.) electronically deposited via Automated Clearing House (ACH) network by an outside agency, not the account holder, to qualify.
  • If membership is not already established, there is a $5 donation to SunWest Foundation, and a $5 membership share deposit required.
  • All accounts subject to approval.

How to Join Sunwest Educational Credit Union

Credit unions differ from banks in that they restrict membership based on a shared common bond, or the credit union’s “field of membership”.

That means in order to qualify for this bonus (or any offer from a credit union), you'll first need to meet Sunwest Educational Credit Union's membership requirements:

  • Make a $5 donation to the SunWest Foundation.

Keep in mind that nearly all credit unions have a "once a member, always a member" policy, so once you're in, the above restrictions no longer apply.
