Turn a little win for you into a BIG win for your community

When you make a $100 minimum opening deposit, qualify for High-Rate Checking and maintain a minimum balance of $100 through the end of February 2023, Alliant will give you a $100 bonus deposit and also make a $100 charitable donation. Just think – if 5,000 people earn their bonuses, that’s $500,000 in charitable donations!

Here’s how it works:


Open your checking account

Apply for an Alliant High-Rate Checking account using promo code GOOD22 by October 7, and make a $100 minimum opening deposit. (Plus, you’ll automatically become an Alliant member for free!)


Fund and use your account

Qualify for High-Rate Checking by opting into eStatements and making at least one electronic deposit a month. Then, maintain a minimum balance of $100 in your checking account through the end of February 2023.


Earn $100 for you and $100 for a good cause!

Congratulations! You’ll earn a $100 bonus deposit, and we’ll make a $100 donation to one of the three not-for-profit organizations below1

We’re savvy, selfless and socially responsible, and we share a common set of values that guide us, including Do Good. We strive to change something for the better each day and hope you’re as excited to join us in that mission as we are.


Are current Alliant members eligible for this promotion?

Yes. Both new and existing Alliant members who open their first Alliant Checking Account are eligible, provided all other eligibility requirements are met. Current members should open their account through online banking and use the promocode GOOD22.

How do I choose which non-profit organization I want to support?

After opening your Alliant Checking Account, you will receive a confirmation email in 1-2 days with details and a link to choose which non-profit organization to support.

How long will it take to receive my $100 bonus deposit after completing the promotion?

Once all requirements have been met, please allow 4-6 weeks for the $100 bonus deposit to post to your Alliant Checking Account.

How do I qualify for High-Rate Checking?

In order to qualify for High-Rate Checking, you must opt-in to receiving eStatements and have at least one monthly electronic deposit to your account. (Electronic deposits include direct deposits, mobile check deposits, ATM deposits and transfers from another financial institution.) Members who do not meet these requirements each month can still open and maintain an Alliant checking account, but will not receive a monthly dividend or be eligible to earn a bonus from this promotion.
