*Statement cycles generally vary and may end on different days during the month. A statement cycle can be shorter than monthly. As examples, a statement cycle may only be a few days in length for the first statement cycle after an account is opened or when a statement date is changed to link accounts for combined statements. If you want to know the date your statement cycle ends, or for any other Account Terms or Conditions, ask a Personal Banker or call us at 877-966-1944.

1To qualify for up to $200 cash bonus, customers must open a myBankwell Choice or Choice Preferred Checking account (which is subject to approval), set up a recurring direct deposit and perform 5 debit card transactions within a monthly statement cycle. Your direct deposit needs to be an electronic deposit of your paycheck, pension or government benefits (such as Social Security) from your employer or the government. Once you have completed both of the checking requirements, we’ll deposit the first $100 bonus into your new account within the following statement cycle. After the crediting to your account of the first bonus, if you continue to meet the two checking requirements, a second bonus of $100 will be credited to your account within the following statement cycle. You have 90 days to complete the requirements and earn the bonus. A minimum of $100 is required to open the myBankwell Choice or Choice Preferred Checking account. Choice Preferred Checking is an interest-bearing account that, as of 9/19/16, earns .15% Annual Percentage Yield. Rate is variable and subject to change. Offer effective 9/19/16 and may be withdrawn at any time. Offer good for personal accounts only and limited to customers who do not currently have a Bankwell checking account. Limit one cash bonus per address. Fees may reduce earnings. Bonuses are considered interest and will be reported on IRS Form 1099-INT.
