    The small print is so small it's hard to read:

    $50 bonus will be reported as interest income.

    Kewl. They didn't say anything about a min balance, but I'm assuming you probably do have one. The interest rate is almost zero too so that is where they get you. Not as good of a deal as it first appears. Thanks though.

    $50 interest on a $100 balance for 6 mos. is pretty good.
