It is nice to see a hefty bank account bonus with no direct deposit required. With this offer from Wells Fargo, you are only required to deposit $25 into the account and make 10 debit card purchases. This is one of the easiest requirements for a bank account bonus I’ve seen. Wells states that the $250 will be added to your account within 45 days after qualifications have been met, again, this is quicker than most bonuses that can take up to 90 days to post.
If you’ve received a Wells Fargo bank account bonus in the last 12 months, you are NOT eligible to receive this bonus.
