1 This offer is limited to those individuals who receive the offer via a direct communication from Bank of America. Offer is intended for new personal checking customers only; you are not eligible if you were an owner or co-owner of a Bank of America personal checking account within the last six (6) months. Fiduciary accounts (e.g., trust accounts) are excluded from this offer. Offer does not apply to business, second or multiple personal checking accounts. Offer expires on August 31, 2020. Bank of America may change or discontinue this offer at any time before this date without notice. ↩
Requirements to Receive the $300 Checking Account Bonus:
(1) Enroll in this offer by requesting enrollment from a Bank of America associate or by clicking the Enroll now button in a direct communication (email or digital ad) from Bank of America.
(2) Open a new eligible Bank of America personal checking account by August 31, 2020, in a financial center, online, or via phone.
(3) Set up and receive Qualifying Direct Deposits of $4,000 or more in your new personal checking account within ninety (90) days of account opening.
A "Qualifying Direct Deposit" is a recurring direct deposit of regular monthly income – such as your salary, pension or Social Security benefit or other eligible regular monthly income, electronically deposited by an employer or other payer into your new checking account. A transfer done via ATM, online, or teller, or a transfer from a bank or brokerage account, or Merrill account is not a Qualifying Direct Deposit. Please see the Personal Schedule of Fees (found at bankofamerica.com/fees) for further explanation of eligible regular monthly income.
After you satisfy all of the requirements, we will attempt to deposit the earned bonus directly into your new personal checking account within sixty (60) days. The new personal checking account must be open and in good standing up to and including the date any earned bonus is paid in order to receive the bonus.

We recommend that you do not use Zelle to send money to those you do not know. Transfers require enrollment in the service and must be made from an eligible Bank of America consumer or business deposit account to a domestic bank account or consumer debit card. Recipients have 14 days to enroll to receive money or the transfer will be canceled. Transactions typically occur in minutes when the recipient's email address or U.S. mobile number is already enrolled with Zelle. We will send you an email alert with transaction details after you send money using Zelle. Dollar and frequency limits apply. See the Online Banking Service Agreement at bankofamerica.com/serviceagreement for further details. Data connection required. Message and data rates may apply. Neither Bank of America nor Zelle offers a protection program for any authorized payments made with Zelle.
5 When you place a lock on your debit or ATM card via Online or Mobile Banking, it will prevent most types of card transactions from being processed until you take action to unlock your card. Any virtual cards linked to the locked card will also be locked. However, the lock will not stop card transactions presented as a new recurring or a previously scheduled recurring transaction by the merchant, transactions using other cards linked to your deposit account, or the posting of refunds or credit adjustments to your account. Additionally, transactions that occurred prior to locking the card will not be affected. Locking your card is not a replacement for reporting your card lost or stolen. This feature is available on the Mobile Banking app for iPad, iPhone and Android devices. Data connection required. Wireless carrier fees may apply. ↩
7 You may elect to receive alerts via text or email. Bank of America does not charge for this service but your mobile carrier's message and data rates may apply. Delivery of alerts may be affected or delayed by your mobile carrier's coverage. ↩
8 You are eligible to enroll in the Preferred Rewards program if you have an active. eligible Bank of America® personal checking or Bank of America Advantage Banking account and maintain a three-month average combined balance in your qualifying Bank of America deposit accounts and/or your qualifying Merrill investment accounts of at least $20,000 for the Gold tier, $50,000 for the Platinum tier, or $100,000 for the Platinum Honors tier. The combined balance is calculated based on your average daily balance for a three calendar month period. Certain benefits are also available without enrolling in Preferred Rewards if you satisfy balance and other requirements. Your benefits become effective within one month of your enrollment, or for new accounts within one month of account opening, unless we indicate otherwise. For details on employee qualification requirements, please call Employee Financial Services or visit the Bank of America intranet site. ↩

± The Bank of America Advantage Savings interest rate booster is only available to enrolled Preferred Rewards members.

¥ Certain credit cards are eligible to receive the Preferred Rewards bonus. Enrolled Preferred Rewards members can receive a Preferred Rewards bonus of 25% for the Gold tier, 50% for the Platinum tier, or 75% for the Platinum Honors tier based on their Program tier and type of card. If your product receives the 10% customer bonus, the Preferred Rewards bonus will replace the 10% customer bonus. The Bank of America® Cash Rewards credit card Preferred Rewards bonus will be applied after all base and bonus cash rewards have been calculated on a purchase. For example, a $100 purchase that earns 3% ($3.00) will actually earn $3.75, $4.50 or $5.25 based on your tier when the purchase posts to your account. For all other eligible card types, a purchase that earns 100 base points will actually earn 125, 150 or 175 points based on your tier when the purchase posts to your account. The Preferred Rewards bonus is not applied to any account opening bonus, if applicable. The Preferred Rewards bonus also does not apply to the bonus earn for certain programs. This information can be found in the Program Rules associated with those credit cards. Other terms and conditions apply. Please refer to your card's Program Rules for details about how you will receive the Preferred Rewards bonus.
