As reported by Doctor of Credit, Wells Fargo is offering a $250 sign up bonus for new Everyday checking account customers through March 24th, 2017. This account needs to be opened online. Requirements are very simple!
To receive your $250 welcome bonus, open an Everyday Checking account ONLINE FROM THIS WEBPAGE ONLY by March 24, 2017, and complete a few steps:
- Deposit at least $25 to fund your account.

As you can see, the minimum deposit is only $25 and there is no direct deposit required. You just have to make 10 debit card purchases or payments within 60 days of opening your account.
Avoiding a Monthly Fee
Note that the Everyday Checking account is subject to a $10 monthly fee, but that fee can be waived with one of the following:
- 10 debit card purchases and/or payments each statement cycle from this checking account, OR
- Direct deposits totaling $500 or more each statement cycle, OR
- Maintain a $1,500 minimum daily balance, OR
- Link checking account to a Wells Fargo Campus ATM or Campus Debit Card
