*To qualify to earn the bonus: 1. Open a new Premium Checking account or increase the balance in your existing Premium Checking account with at least $15,000 from a source outside of Sterling National Bank (“new money minimum”); 2. Maintain the new money minimum each day during the statement cycle; 3. Have Qualifying Direct Deposits totaling $1,000 or more made to this account during the statement cycle; 4. Offer is available on one (1) Premium Checking account per client and cannot be combined with other offers.

Each statement cycle that you satisfy the conditions above, you will receive $75 as a cash bonus, up to a total maximum of $225; the bonus will be paid on the last day of the evaluated statement cycle. Your account must be open at the time the bonus is credited. Prior to account opening or increase in balance to your existing account, this offer can be revoked at any time. Once the account has been opened, or new money minimum has been added to an existing Premium Checking account, as confirmed by Sterling National Bank, this offer is valid for up to the first five statement cycles thereafter. Cash bonus will be reported as income on IRS Form 1099-INT.

A “Qualifying Direct Deposit” is an Automated Clearing House (ACH) credit from your employer or the government for your paycheck, pension or governmental benefits (such as Social Security). It does not include transfers from one account to another or person to person.
