No direct link, offered in branch only (apparently all U.S. Bank branches have this offer)
U.S. Bank is offering a bonus of $200 when you open a new consumer checking account between March 1st and April 30th when you receive direct deposits totaling $1,000 or more within 60 days of account opening.
There is a $12.95 monthly fee. This is waived with one of the following: an open U.S. Bank personal loan, line or credit card. Many of us have a U.S. Bank personal credit card like Altitude, Flexperks, or Cash+; that would work to keep the account fee-free.

Thanks OP. Looking to start a relationship with US bank. Is there a way besides the CC to waive that $12.95 fee?
You’ll need to get the credit card or have a loan with them to get the fee waived.
Yes, another way for no fee on the gold checking is if you qualify for us bank’s “because you’ve earned it.” us bank also waives fees on its platinum account for military.
This is good info. Do you know how to qualify for this?
Yes, I applied and was accepted yesterday. Recommend you Google that phrase along with US Bank. It will take to the webpage with the terms and where you can apply.
Gah bad form on my part. Found the info now. Thanks so much.
