*We will credit one cash bonus to the account if the account receives a total of at least $500 in qualifying direct deposits within 90 days of account opening. Qualifying direct deposits include, but are not limited to, recurring electronic deposits such as payroll, pension or Social Security. Person-to-person, bank transfers or other electronic money transfers such as those made through internet payment services do not qualify. Bonus will be credited to the account within 90 days of direct deposit activation as long as the account is still open and all of the eligibility requirements are satisfied at the time we seek to credit the bonus. Bonus is reportable for tax purposes. No more than one bonus will be awarded regardless of the number of accounts, titling on account, or the number of direct deposit arrangements established. Bonus offer may vary by product and region. Cash bonus offers are not available to employees of M&T Bank or any of its affiliates or to customers who have already received a bonus in connection with an M&T personal checking account within the preceding twelve-month period. A $50 early close-out fee applies if the account is closed within 180 days of the date the account was opened. This offer is valid on new checking accounts opened by 10/31/2018. This offer is nontransferable. If you received another bonus offer via mail, the bonus will be fulfilled according to the requirements detailed in the mailing. Please be sure to refer to any special instructions or qualifications noted in the mailing.
