Citadel Credit Union has earned some high praise from Fortune this month.
Not only has Citadel been named one of the nation’s 10 best banks and credit unions for February 2023 by Fortune Recommends — the global media organization’s independent arm dedicated to helping readers make smart decisions about the financial and business-related products they use every day — Citadel was also recognized for offering one of the 10 best checking account bonuses this month.
Although it boasts only a regional footprint, Citadel was ranked sixth on each of the aforementioned lists, alongside industry heavyweights SoFi, Citibank, Citizens Bank, PNC Bank, M&T Bank, and others.
For its ranking of the 10 best checking account bonuses in February 2023, Fortune Recommends weighed:
- Bonus amounts
- Minimum balance requirements
- Annual percentage yields (APYs) for interest-earning checking accounts
- Branch and free ATM access
- Mobile and online banking platforms,
- Customer service options.
The publication’s analysts were impressed with Citadel’s $300 bonus for new checking accounts.
“Citadel was the only credit union that made our list,” wrote Ivana Pino for Fortune Recommends. “Customers who open a free checking or Cashback Rewards checking account can get a $300 cash bonus for qualifying direct deposit(s) totaling $500 or more posting to the new checking account within 60 days of the account opening.”
