Available in select Virginia and North Carolina counties, ValleyStar Credit Union is offering a $250 welcome bonus when you open a new personal checking account and set up direct deposit. This bonus is available to new and existing members that establish a new primary draft (aka checking) account. What's even more? They offer a 1.00% APY on checking balances between $500 and $10,000.

How To Earn The Bonus

The ValleyStar Credit Union Personal Checking promotion requires you to set up direct deposits in order to earn the $250 bonus (step-by-step breakdown is listed above!).

As with any offer, don't forget to read the fine print before opening your new account. It's where the credit union will clearly state who is eligible for the deal along with any nuances you'll want to be aware of.

The fine print

  • Recurring transfers or deposits from other sources, such as other accounts at ValleyStar or accounts at other institutions, do not qualify.
  • Offer good for new and existing members who establish a new primary (S8) share draft account only—members who closed their primary (S8) share draft account within two years of new primary share draft account open date are not eligible for bonuses.
  • Limit one bonus per member/distinct social security number.

How to Join ValleyStar 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 one of ValleyStar Credit Union's membership requirements:

  • Live, work, worship or attend school in the following Virginia counties: Amelia, Amherst, Appomattox, Augusta, Bedford, Campbell, Caroline, Charles City, Chesterfield, Cumberland, Dinwiddie, Franklin, Goochland, Halifax, Hanover, Henrico, Henry, King and Queen, King William, Louisa, New Kent, Patrick, Pittsylvania, Powhatan, Prince George, Roanoke and Sussex
  • Live, work, worship or attend school in the following Virginia cities: Colonial Heights, Danville, Hopewell, Lynchburg, Martinsville, Petersburg, Richmond, Roanoke, Salem, Staunton and Waynesboro
  • Live, work, worship or attend school in the following North Carolina counties: Caswell, Rockingham and Stokes
  • Live, work, worship or attend school in the following North Carolina cities: Eden, King and Reidsville

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.
