Guru’s Wrap-up

This can be a very bonus if maximized, and the structure makes it easier for people with organic spend. You can earn 10% cash back on up to $1,000 in purchases every month for 9 months. That gives you a total bonus of $900 for spending $9,000 in 9 months.

But to get the maximum bonus you also need to open a checking account. Considering that you can earn a $400 bonus for the checking account, then this is more like a $500 bonus.
