† / 1 The following describes the terms that apply to participation in the SoFi Checking and Savings direct deposit promotion (the “Promotion”) offered by SoFi Bank, N.A, Member FDIC (“SoFi”).
Eligible Participants: All new and existing members without a history of direct deposit transactions into their SoFi Checking and Savings account are eligible for the Direct Deposit Program.Members who previously enrolled in direct deposit into either SoFi Money or SoFi Checking and Savings, whether currently still enrolled or not, do not qualify for this Direct Deposit promotion. Bonuses are limited to one per SoFi Checking & Savings account. In the case of a joint account, only the primary account holder (the member who signed up first) is eligible for a bonus.
Promotion Period: The Direct Deposit Promotion will begin on 01/01/2023 at 00:01AM ET and end on 12/31/23 at 11:59PM ET.
Bonus Terms:In order to qualify for eligibility for a bonus, SoFi must receive at least one Qualifying Direct Deposit (as defined below) from an Eligible Participant before the end of the Promotion Period. Qualifying Direct Deposits are defined as deposits of $1,000.00 or greater from an enrolled member’s employer, payroll, or benefits provider via ACH deposit. Deposits that are not from an employer (such as check deposits; P2P transfers such as from PayPal or Venmo, etc.; merchant transactions such as from PayPal, Stripe, Square, etc.; and external bank ACH transfers not from employers) and bank ACH transfers not from employers) do not qualify for this Direct Deposit promotion. The amount of the bonus, if any, will be calculated during the Evaluation Period as described and defined below.
Evaluation Period: The Evaluation Period begins when SoFi receives a Qualifying Direct Deposit within the Promotion Period and ends 25 days later (the “Evaluation Period”). For the avoidance of doubt, the Evaluation Period shall not extend beyond the Promotion Period. The bonus amount will vary based on the total amount of Qualifying Direct Deposits received during the Evaluation Period. Once the Evaluation Period has elapsed, we will determine if you have met the offer requirements and will deposit any earned bonus into your checking account within seven (7) business days. For example, if SoFi receives between $1,000.00 and $4,999.99 in Qualifying Direct Deposits during the Evaluation Period, you will receive a cash bonus of $50. A member may only qualify for one bonus tier and will not be eligible for future bonus payments if inflows subsequently increase after the Evaluation Period.
|Total Qualifying Direct Deposit Amount in 25-day Evaluation Period||Cash Bonus|
|$1,000.00 - $4,999.99||$50|
|$5,000.00 or more||$250|
Bonus Payment timeline: SoFi will credit members who meet qualification criteria within (7) business days of the end of the Evaluation Period.
Bonuses are considered miscellaneous income and may be reportable to the IRS on Form 1099-MISC (or Form 1042-S, if applicable). SoFi reserves the right to exclude any Members from participating in the Program for any reason, including suspected fraud, misuse, or if suspicious activities are observed. SoFi also reserves the right to stop or change the Program at any time.

There is no minimum direct deposit amount required to qualify for the 4.20% APY for savings. Members without direct deposit will earn 1.20% APY on all account balances in checking and savings (including Vaults). Interest rates are variable and subject to change at any time. These rates are current as of 4/25/2023. There is no minimum balance requirement. Additional information can be found at http://www.sofi.com/legal/banking-rate-sheet
